I ran C cleaner to show duplicate files on my computer and I found a double listing for a few files. More than a few files have vista in the file path but this computer is running Windows 7.

One of the duplicate files is called
BlackSkinImage. Has anyone ever heard of this? I looked on google and found nothing.

They are found in the following locations:


When I highlight a file and click open file folder, it shows the name of the file as: blackskinimages 64.dll and it's an application extension.

Keep in mind, I am running windows 7.

So, Why are there Vista files(I've only listed one but there are more)?

Why are there 2 set up folders?

Background: I did have a windows vista laptop that was compromised. I used a flashdrive on that computer to move some files. I later found a command prompt to show hidden files on flashdrive. There were some files named "settings" that I did not put on there. I deleted them and have since used the flashdrive on the current lap top. Could this be the problem?

I did at one point change the hard drive(on the windows 7 machine) and reloaded windows but the computer did weird things while loading. Could it be a bios virus?

The computer seems to be running fine but I worry there may be keyloggers or if someone can see what I'm doing, etc.

Description: Realtek HD Audio Manager Resource

File size: 3.04 Mb
File date: 17.05.2011 13:10
File version:
Internal name: BlackSkinImages.dll
Original file name: BlackSkinImages.dll
Product name: Realtek HD Audio Manager Resource
Product version:
Company name: Realtek Semiconductor


I don't think that you have to panic. Those are Realtek HD Audio. And Vista name is maybe because those drivers work on Win 7 even if they are written for Vista, or you have copied them sometimes, somehow. 


If you have something to add, to help further explanation, write here.


I would like to help you to remove malware. Let's look inside.   :busy:

But I don't know to solve all PC problems.  :smash:
