I was trying to remove the yahoo redirect virus and tried Cnet hitman3.5. it detected a malware ipconfig7.dll and i had the program remove it. the problem continued so i restored to a date i new i was ok and the virus was gone. i tried the hitman again and it detected the same ipconfig7.dll as a malware. I thought i needed an ipconfig.dll but there is only ipconfig7.dll in the c:\windows\sytem32 folder.

do i delete the program? do i need an ipconfig.dll? do i keep it?

Hello,This is possibly a False positive. We should double check it before we take action. Hitman has too many of these.

Lets' upload this file for a second opinion on what it actually is..

Please make sure that you can view all hidden files. Instructions on how to do this can be found here:
