Hey!
I recently had the sudden and unforeseen apparition of a to me unlnown file named Chilkatzip.dll
It appeared when I did set up my MS Flight Simulator FS2004 and the corresponding software for online flying. Apparently this file is not a safe file and can cause a lot of troubles to any PC, and that is what it did to mine as well, starting with some programs that did no longer start and telling that there was a file missing, also my PC gegan to slow down when switching it on, and all kind of strage things happened.
To make the story short: I had to really format C and start all from the beginning, and it took me 3 days before I had my Pc again running smoothly as I desired to have it ( Win XP Pro 1Gb RAM P4 2995MHz ATI Radeon ).
Unfortunately, when setting up again my FS2004 and the corresponding software for online flying, the Chilkatzip.dll appeared again in the root directory of my FS2004.
I don't know where it comes from, and the people of IVAO who made the software for online flying are definite: this chilkatzip.dll does not originate from one of their software sets!
Now, my question is: where from comes a chilkatzip.dll, if no visible origin can be found? What could I have done that this stupid file came into the root directory of my FS2004, which I did already set up again and again several times before and it never appeared those times, and now it appeared twice without knowing from where and how.
The other question is: do I leave it in the root driectory of my FS2004, or will I wipe it? And what are the consequencies of eighter removing it or not?
Is anybody familiar with these problems? And what should I do now?

Hi Jive1

We understand this, but look at this pathname:

programfilesdir+\vbouncer\chilkatzip.dll

That file is downloaded with Vbouncer which is a rogue spyware remover. Do you have this program in add/remove in the control panel? If so i recommend that you uninstall it. If not just let us know and we can go from there.

Hey!
This is strange! I have been looking for a folder vbouncer already myself, after reading on the internet what it is all about, but there is none! No folder of vbouncer at all..... Only that one Chilkatzip.dll appeared in my FS2004 root directory......

FS2004 --> F-Secure?

I would imagine that this .dll has been quarantined by F-Secure and now lies in it's quarantine folder which i guess would be in its root directory. I've never user F-Secure before so i'm not too sure, but i'll wait and see what quietman7 has to say! :thumbsup:

FS2004 --> Flight Simulator 2004.

Go to jotti.org
Browse to the location of chilkazip.dll and submit [upload] it for scanning/analysis.
Post back with the results of the file analysis.
