I have a message that keeps popping up from McAffee that says I have a trojan virus called Generic.dx located in c:windows\system32\AppCert\wnl32.dll. MaAffee cannot quarantine nor remove it. Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

Welcome to BC cadoodle32 :flowers:

For a start, I suggest scanning the file in question at Jottiscan and Virustotal to rule out the possibility of a False Positive. Please post the results in your next reply.
