Remove unnecessary quote and split to its own topic. ~ OB

NOD32 keeps flagging a file called f5dd001c19.exe (which i googled and couldn't find anything about) every time i start up an application. I'm pretty sure it's responsible for my VLC media player crashing whenever i try to launch it.

It's a Win32/Riern.B Trojan apparently (which is how i found this thread), also found in the \Macromedia\Common\ folder.

This is my most recent report:

Time - 20/12/2009 00:09:18File - C:\Documents and Settings\---\Application Data\Macromedia\Common\f5dd001c19.exeThreat - a variant of Win32/Riern.B trojanAction - cleaned by deleting - quarantinedInformation - Event occurred on a new file created by the application: C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe.

I did a full scan yesterday but nothing was found. I'll try another scan right now in safe mode to see if that brings anything up.

Also running Windows XP.

I've got the same problem.
Google search on the riern.b trojan give little to no assistance other than to say this trojan is "high risk"
ESET keeps it in check but does not remove the trojan.
Tried CounterSpy by Sunbelt and it found no problems even though it claimed to remove the reirn.b trojan
Any assistance with this is much appreciated.
I'm also running XP
Thanks in advance.
