Hi all,

I'm new to this forum but have browsed a lot in the past. I want to share how I fixed a problem on my husband's laptop with the rpcss dll. I downloaded Norton Power Eraser (free) and ran the scan. The scan found an issue with rpcss.dll. I ran the fix option and since rebooting, the problems went away. Prior to this, the laptop would pop up with odd security messages and also prompted to start Windows Security Services (Windows 7). After running Spybot scans and Symantec scans, it still didn't resolve the issue. So I resorted to the Power Eraser.

 

Hope this helps those having similar problems! Good luck! :thumbup2:

Hi,

 

You had Zekos infection but NPE don't delete the random named files in the %system32% folder which are a part of the trojan as well...so your system may need some additional actions... ;)

 

 

Regards,

Georgi

Georgi,

Thanks for the heads up. I will further inspect for lingering "bits" (pun intended).
