I am currently experiencing an issue with a pws.wow infection of dbhelp.dll. My anti spyware/anti virus program Bitdefender 10, has been registering it in the events page as a "critical" error. After researching the pws.wow virus - i believe it's just a World of Warcraft password stealer...however, due to the fact that it is apparent, it makes my Bitdefender take up a lot of resources managing it.
No recent changes on the OS or computer, although I might have picked this up from some website. Should I try to roll the computer back or re-install the dbhelp.dll from a drive with the same o/s installed? (i have another drive that I have on my computer that is a slave, but does have windows xp installed)
Any help on this, would be greatly appreciated.
I'm a really great hardware guy...but only mediocre on the software...so any help is good.
