I'm running windows 7 home premium and have been gettting a lot of popup messages recently from ESET NOD32 Antivirus 7.

Here is the message:


Object: C:\Windows\system32\rpcss.dll

Threat: Win64/Patched.H trojan


Error while cleaning.

Event occured during an attempt to access the file by the application: C:\Windows\System32\SearchIndexer.exe


I have tried using system restore and malware bytes, but no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You got hit with the latest version of Zekos. One of your system files (rpcss.dll) has been patched.

You'll need more advanced tools to replace that file.
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.
