Found these on the last combofix log so I searched my registry and root drive for the executable files; the computer came up with no results (even after showing all files); but have found it in my registry, one of which shows as "@C:\Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash\Flashutil32_11_8_800_94_ActiveX.exe,-101" which seems to be a legitimate flash file.


My question is, in searching the web for info about this flashbroker found in my combofix log, some like Spydig say:


The FlashBroker.exe file is a malicious file related to spyware. You can read the following information to learn more about the FlashBroker.exe file and get detailed approach on how to detect and remove the FlashBroker.exe file.


while fixpc says:


FlashBroker.exe file is a common Windows file which is responsible for loading and processing the settings of related application or Windows function. A faulty FlashBroker.exe file can lead to FlashBroker.exe errors and bring you one of the below error messages:


Since I just removed redirect malware on my pc, I just want to verify if this is malware or a legit program. Can anyone help me?

If you think your computer is infected...


Please follow the instructions in THIS GUIDE starting at Step 6. If you cannot complete a step, skip it and continue.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it HERE. Please include a description of your computer issues, what you have done to resolve them, and a link to this topic.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.

It would be helpful if you post a note here once you have completed the steps in the guide and have started your topic in malware removal. Good luck and be patient.

If HelpBot replies to your topic, PLEASE follow Step One so it will report your topic to the team members.
