I recently downloaded a .avi file. When I tried to open it Mcafee popped up and said that it is blocking a buffer overload file windows/system32/dll.exe or something to that regard. I tried to delete the file and it says the file is in use, I closed down mcafee, and everything that could come in contact with the file, and when I tried to rename it, the window froze. Mcafee did not detect anything in a system scan but it sounds like somethings wrong.

Thanks for your help

*Sorry I typed banner instead of buffer in the title
