Part of those files may possibly have an infection in them. Also, does it say which path it is too these files? If so, what is the path.

C:\\WINDOWS\system32\user32.dll
C:\\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll
C:\\WINDOWS\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

like i mention under result/infection it has changed, but wen the scan is finished under the test results under status it says changed, but wen u do a new scan, it comes up saying result/infection change

Ok I think that part of those files are infected, however I could be wrong. From what I know, kernel32.dll and shell32.dll are important system files, not sure about the other too but they might be. :thumbsup: Wait to see what some of the other members say.

Nabilzki,

I just found this on the following website: http://www.liutilities.com/products/wintas...brary/ntoskrnl/

Windows errors related to ntoskrnl.exe ?

ntoskrnl.exe is a critical process in the boot-up cycle of your computer although should never appear in WinTasks whilst under normal circumstances

Note: ntoskrnl.exe can be altered by the w32.bolzano and variants. If this process appears in WinTasks, please update your virus definitions immediately. Check that ntoskrnl.exe is stable on your computer.
