Dear Bleeping Computer,
A shop(!!) installed Windows XP on a friend's computer with a virus. The virus was win32;dropper.gen, and it affected the rundll32.exe.
Avast found the virus but gave a message that the threat had been removed - yet it kept coming back. In fact it wasn't removed and when I did a bootscan it found the virus but gave a read error when I tried to fix it. Eventually I used Emsisoft and it removed the rundll32.exe.
That is the stage I am at now. XP runs, I think the system is virus-free, my friend can use the internet but I cannot access the control panels.
I might also have a USB drive problem, and I am unable to install camera software.
MAIN TOPIC PROBLEM - I want to copy the rundll32.exe file into windows/system32 and register it.
A friend has given me a copy of windows XP but when I run it it requires burnsetup. I am not used to these "burn-setup" approaches, normally I buy the DVD and install. All I want is the rundll32.exe file.
Can you help?
Hope you are keeping well,
All the Best,
