I just completed an eset online scan of my computer and under "Manage Quarantine" it is showing "dvdburning d165404.exe" but does not indicate that it took any action.  I tried to look this up on the web but while information stating that it is malware came up I don't recognize any of the websites that are offering that information.

 

I haven't and won't close out the eset until I know for sure what to do with this.

 

Thanks so much for any help.

Hi -

Do you have any 3rd party CD / DVD burning programs installed ??

If so, please list them.

The only dvd/cd burning programs I have are ones that came with my computer.  Including Cyberlink Media and PowerDVD.  At least that is all I know of.

I just looked at eset again and under "List of found threats" I see the following under Target: "C:\Users\me\downloads\dvdburning d165404.exe" the next column Threats says: "probably a variant of Win32\InstallIQ application" and the last column Action says: "cleaned by deleting - quarantined".  Then under the Manage Quarantine option it just shows "dvdburning d165404.exe".

InstallIQ a "Potentially Unwanted Application" from ESET, (or PUA) not severe .

From what I can find it seems like this is an installer wrapper
CNET, and others, use these to monitor your usage, and will supply information of programs "they think" you may be interested in.

Wrappers were discussed at length in other areas of the forum a while back.

 

Safe to remove this, as it was installed some time back, during a download from ?? some commercial site.

 

Regards -
