I apologize if this is in the wrong forum, (newbie!)I was unable to post in what seemed the most logical forum.
I have a friend who is running WIN ME and has had trouble with the system being unstable. I helped him with a few scans and found a Trojan Downloader identified by the latest version of Adaware as Con Hook. the root file is in the Windows System folder and is labeled vstqo.dll. I am new to most of this and I did a few searches but could not find much specific information. I would appreciate any info you could provide
on con hook. Thank you all very much. Spyhunter
P.S. I find your site most informative and helpful
