Hi All,

I'm running Vista install 6002 SP 2.

My Microsoft Security Essentials daily reports "win32\powerregscheduler" and encounters an error when it tries to remove it.

Notes: (1) Neither Spybot nor Kaspersky's "sees" this beast (2) MSE reports "All Systems Go" after it CAN'T remove the beastie in question (3) I d/l-ed and ran some sw specifically to kill this problem; no luck (4) I'm new enough to Vista that I can't even find the \win32 directory to do some manual search-and-destroy.


Thank You,

Exemplia / Eric

Hello and welcome to Bleepingcomputer.

The Mods may move this post to the Am I Infected forum, however I will add a piece of advice and that is try downloading, updating and running MalwareBytes and scan your computer.

Here's the link. http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti...&tag=button

you can also download these two programs:

Process Explorer: run this to see what processes are running and can control them. http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb896653.aspx

AutoRuns: to see what processes automatically starts http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx

Both will allow you to see what processes are running or what programs are auto starting.

Hope this helps.

Edit: reason: Changed opening statement.
