Today F-Prot found 3 of the above files on my PC which it is calling a "possible security risk" and has quarantined them.

They seem to be located in:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\vboxs430.dll
C:\Program Files\NewTech Infosystems\NTI CD-Maker\vboxs430.dll
C:\WINDOWS\Vbox\Common\vboxt430en-us.vboxlm

Are these viruses, and should I be concerned about them?

Thanks very much,
Bartolo

Looks like files related to Vbox Trial Client DLL.

Could be a False positive. Get a second opinion.

Go to Jotti's virusscan or VirusTotal. In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file(s) and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.

Thanks very much. I will do as you suggest.

I did not try to download anything having to do with a Vbox. Is that a variation on XBox?

VirusTotal said I was sending null files, so I went to Windows Explorer and either the files cited by F-Prot were empty or did not exist on my PC. I suspect you are correct about false positives.

F-Prot does this from time to time with C:\windows\system32\cmdow.exe, claiming it is W32/hacktoolx,jy

Thanks again,
Bartolo
