Norton found backdoor.tidserv!inf on my computer, listing the infected file as omci.sys dll file. I don't have this Dell networking system on my Dimension 4600 running Windows XP, it's six years old. I read a lot of threads about this infection, and the removal was a bit intimidating, especially when I thought that my omci.sys was infected, when in reality that isn't installed on my computer. Norton said it hadn't launched. I did have two omci.sys files found in a file search, both 17kb files. My computer has been behaving just fine. I deleted those two files, and Norton doesn't find any evidence of backdoor.tidserv!inf after this. I went to malwarebytes and ran their tool, and while it did find 7 registry keys, five of them were related to weatherbug (adware.minibug) and two were Trojan.agent. It also found a file infected by weatherbug. None of them were related to the backdoor virus in the title of this email.
Is is possible that since the virus was shown not to have launched that I was able to remove it that simply? How can I be sure that all vestiges of this virus have been elminated?
Thanks for any advice/guidance on this matter.
