Dear BleepingComputer,

When I was browsing the web, suddenly pop up a warning: Warning there was virus, please download this protective file. Without thinking further, I downloaded the file. After downloading, I realise this may be a malware, so I run my anti-virus softwre: F-Secure, which detected a 'suspicious file' in the hidden file area. The path is: C:\asdm_pdata_01501\dragonwait.exe. However, the F-Secure cannot delete the file. Is my laptop infected?

I have browse BC forum for this topic, but cannot find similar link, hence this help request. Thank you for your help.

VirScan analysis of DragWait.exe

The file appears to be related to ASUS Data Security Manager

If you suspect a file was falsely detected (a false positive) or appears suspicious, submit it to one of the following online services that analyzes suspicious files:In the "File to upload & scan" box, browse to the location of the suspicious file and submit (upload) it for scanning/analysis.

Then you should contact and advise the vendor that their program is being detected as a threat. In many cases they will work with the anti-virus techs in an attempt to resolve the detection. Most anti-virus vendors have instructions for sample file submissions posted on their web sites. Once a file is received, a technician can examine it in more detail and provide a report letting you know the results.

Go to F-Secure's Sample Analysis System and submit a sample of the file for analysis.
