Hi -

A quick check -

Do you mean ntuser.dar or NTUSER.DAT as they are not the same thing, and you may have misread the last letter -

Function -
The NTUSER.DAT file is a registry file. Each user's NTUSER.DAT file contains the registry settings for their individual account. The Windows registry, as described by Microsoft, is a "central hierarchical database" that contains information about the software, hardware and user profiles contained on a computer. Windows is constantly referencing its registry files throughout the course of its operation. The configuration of the "HKEY_CURRENT_USER" branch of the registry is supported by the current user's NTUSER.DAT file.
Location -
The NTUSER.DAT file is in your user folder. In Windows 7 and Windows Vista, user folders are at C:\Users\USER_NAME.
 

Please tell me if I am wrong, as ntuser.dar is not normal -

 

Thank You -

Hey Midou1994, 

 

I'm fairly knew to this forum but I would like to add to the information mentioned above. What version of Windows are you running presently? If you are running Windows 7, the file that you just mentioned should be located in your User Folder and not the folder that you just mentioned. Also, why did you re-install your VPN Software? The best bet for you to check if your machine is infected is by installing an anti-virus program and running a boot time scan. Are you currently using an Anti-virus?

Hi the ntuser.dat is present in the User folder but that one is upper case as mentioned above.....

 

 

As for VPN I meant that I was trying out a few free vpn apps that could have caused something to sneak in........................

 

AV well I had Norton the Trial Got over Now I have got Eset`s Trial running so far nothing has been deteceted but I remember well that I shift+ Del the ntuser.dat file 

in the location and now it has come back

 

I have Windows 7 Professional 64 Bit

Hello, probably best to get a deeper look in the Malware Removal forum.

 

Please follow this Preparation Guide and post in a new topic.
Let me know if all went well.

Than better to start a new topic in the Win 7 forum and see what they can do.

 

As your DDS log topic is clean.
