Per acklan's link:

gr33n.exe is an undesirable program added by the W32/Sdbot-ZP worm. When started, this infections connects to a remote IRC server where it waits for commands to execute.

Why would you want it back?

F4R7TZ,

Did you read the description within the link acklan gave you? "Added by the W32/Sdbot-ZP worm. When started, this infections connects to a remote IRC server where it waits for commands to execute." Meaning that you have parts of a worm i.e. malware on your computer. There are still parts of malware looking for the executable file still on your system. In short, you don't want to get that .exe file back. You need/want to clean up the rest of your system to get rid of the error message that comes up saying it's looking for the malware .exe file.


To do this, follow the steps below:

Run these online virus scanners:
http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
http://housecall.trendmicro.com/

Also this online Trojan scanner:
TrojanScan

Are you using these basic security programs?
(They're all free.)

aČ free - a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
ewido security suite - offers protection against urgently growing threats like Trojans, Worms, Dialers, Hijackers, Spyware and Keyloggers.
Ad-Aware - A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D - Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
Spywareblaster - A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard - A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

When installing ewido security suite, under Additional Options uncheck:
Install background guard
Install scan via context menu

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

If the above doesn't help rid you of the problem, then:

Sorry about being short. I thought I was being concise. I'll try to be clearer in the future.

Ok thanks for the help i dont really understand all these files but aslong as the message stops popping up. I read something about mcdirectX i didnt really understand what it is or what it does. However i had a problem with it about may-june time it had a virus i think it was a trojan and it wasnt going away with AVG because AVG can not get rid of trojan (i did not know that then) and it eventually went away. However would that effect the virus,trojan etc that i have now. Is there a link between these 2 files which might be causing some errors on my computer. I think the file was deleted but im not sure where to find it so i dont know if it still exsised.
Thanks again F4R7TZ.

The advice Animal gave 3 post up and that I took the liberty to QUOTE should be your next step.

F4R7TZ

You need to complete the work on your HJT log before persuing some of these other questions.

You had three separate threads open in three forums dealing with the same subject.

You are confusing and wasting other memebers times with such actions.

I've closed two of these threads now and will leave only one open in the Games forum here >

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...99&#entry183199



Thanks to all that have responded to these threads trying to help! We're sorry for the confusion.


This thread is closed.
