AVG free reports "Virus detected while opening file C:windowssystem32avpu32.dll. TROJAN HORSE BACKDOOR.GENERIC.NIL. I have Windows XP sp2.
Regular virus scans miss it but this message comes up when I start an application. Not always the same application and not every time. I cannot see the file with My Computer. Show hidden files is checked. Hide protected operating system files is not checked. Cannot see the file from command line even in safe mode. My virus definition files are up to date. :thumbsup: Sure would appreciate some help.

Thanks Pacman, I've been there but I went over it again. The problem is that it dosn't show up anywhere. Not in processes, not in Autoruns. what I did was create a file named avpu32.dll then copied it to c:windowssystem32 from the command line. That seems to have worked. I haven't had a problem since. I searched my registry for "avpu32" found a bunch of them. I have no experience editing the registry so I want to go slowly here. Btw I still can't see the file. I know it's there because the command line said the file copied sucessfuly. I still want to find out how the blazes they hide that file and how I can get to it.
