Hey!
I have problem with mailskinner.rtk. I just cant remove it...
I tried with spybot many times and after I reboot my computer it's back again. But spybot S&D deletes it successfully.
I tried to delete it in safe mode too, but it was back again in normal mode. How can I remove it? Is it dangerous?
P.S. sorry for mistakes, I dont speak English :flowers:
Have a nice day :thumbsup:

Spybot is misidentifying the files. You have Kaspersky--right? See the discussion in link below.

Thanks, I have one more question about this link:

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/m....exe-13171.html

''This startup entry is started automatically from a Run, RunOnce, RunServices, or RunServicesOnce entry in the registry''

So, all I have to do is to delete Run, RunOnce, RunServices and RenServicesOnce from there? This is this virus?
I need to know that because, if I delet something wrong I can destroy my Windows...you know :thumbsup:

You don't have a "virus". Spybot is MISidentifying the files. Those are Kaspersky files. Either wait for Spybot to correct their error or tell Spybot to ignore those files.

False positive
Synonyms: False alarm

A false positive is another way of saying ‘mistake’. As applied to the field of anti-virus programs, a false positive occurs when the program mistakenly flags an innocent file as being infected. This may seem harmless enough, but false positives can be a real nuisance.

* You waste productivity due to user down-time.
* You may take e-mail offline, as a security precaution, thus causing a backlog and more lost productivity
* You waste even more time and resources in futile attempts to disinfect ‘infected’ files. And if you load a backup, to replace ‘infected files, the backup appears to be infected too.

In short, false positives can be costly nuisances.

The term is not confined just to the anti-virus world. It also applies, for example, to anti-spam protection, where it refers to the misidentification of a legitimate e-mail message as spam. This too could be very costly, since the undelivered e-mail may be a business critical message.
