It does is an XP SP3 machine.
But also, I use a Vista SP1 machine: I'm afraid I passed the virus (or whatever) to it from the XP machine, but I think I could manage it. I'll tell what happened in case it can be of some help:
When starting the computer, everytime, I got a window message, titled "ConfDriver properties", telling:
Size: 0 bytes
Deleted: Today, [time and date]
(sorry for the translation of the words; in Spanish it sounds different)
The possible options for that window were:
- A button inside, reading "Restore".
- Two buttons at the bottom, reading "Accept"/"Cancel".
I never tried the first option, but the second and the third, and the window just closed and nothing seemed to happen, until starting again the computer.
Then, I was looking for the MnWin32.exe in the Vista machine with no success; the same happened with the other two files, .exe and .ini.
But again investigating what happened when switching any portable media to the XP machine, I observed the "automatic" creation, in that media, of a folder called "CONFIG", in capitals, including the file "S-1-5-21-1482476501-1644491937-682003330-1013" (plus the two .exe and .ini files).
Then, I went back to the Vista machine, searched for a "CONFIG" folder, and found it hidden right in the main hard disk. It seemd to contain a hidden "S-1-5-21-1482476501-1644491937-682003330-1013" file.
I deleted the whole "CONFIG" folder, and (surprisingly for me) I was asked about permission to delete four (!) files: the visible "S-1-5-21-1482476501-1644491937-682003330-1013" but also three invisible: the .exe, the .ini, and a "ConfDriver.exe".
After that, I started again my Vista computer and I no longer got the mentioned window message.
- The XP machine remains as I described.
- The Vista machine... I don't know if I can trust it's cleaned (?)
