I have a problem with the spybot worm. on a virus scan it shows a file called winmanager.exe as the culprit. i went into the registry and saw the file in there under winupdt. is that normal and should i remove it from the registry. i also found it in the sys32 folder. i deleted it from there but the worm keeps popping up. can anyone help :thumbsup:

Hi ac8663. You should submit a HijackThis in this forum:


If you have never done this before there is a pinned topic at the top titled How to submit a HijackThis log.

Quite frequently a spyware fix requires repairing multiple registry entries. The HijckThis log will usually show all of these entries.


I do not respond to PM's requesting help. That's what the forums are here for. Please use them so that others may benefit from your questions and the responses you receive.
