Last week one of my computers running XP-pro was visited over and over again by the "spy sheriff" and his pal "surfsidekick. I finaly beat them to the draw and they are gone (I hope). However, the new anti- software keeps asking if I want to allow this to go into C:\windows\system32\??oolsv.exe. I probably do not, until I can check the credentials. Does anyone know what it is and how I can stop it from knocking at the door?

Thank you

puzzles,

First of all let me say Welcome to Bleeping Computer. Everything I've been able to find on your malevolent dll isn't good. I'm going to suggest that you post a HijackThis log. Please follow the instructions below and you should be on your way to being rid of your pesky pals. :thumbsup:

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
