I have a couple quick questions about two files
I'm not sure what to do about.
1. Norton caught a file called retadpu572.exe.tmp
recently as a trojan. It couldn't delete it so
it quarantined it.
I did a search online but couldn't find any info
on this exact file name so I sent it to Symantec to
see what they said. I got an automated email response
saying it was an non-repairable threat and I should
delete it and replace the file if necessary.
Do I need to replace this file or can just tell
Norton to delete it and forget about it? I'm assuming
I don't have to replace it but I thought I should
check before I just start deleting things.
2. I found a file (that wasn't there before)
called syscofv.exe on my C:\ drive. Does anyone
know what this is? I'm guessing it's not suppose
to be there but again a web search turned up nothing.
Should I just delete this file or is it nothing
to worry about?
I did a scan on the file but it didn't find anything.
Here's the results of the scan:
