Hi
Earlier today i installed comodo antivirus (had panda before). Right away it found something wrong with my direct connect exe file......this: Monitor.Win32.NetMon.a

I have searched and read alot, but still i dont get it. Is it a virus or what? :thumbsup:

I have tried other virus programs (right now i have nod32) and scaned the file at virus total, only kapersky finds this problem with the file (and comodo of course). I have scaned with removale programes such as spyware doctor and tried to find specific removal tools or removal instructions....but nothing.

Scaned with hijackthis, but the log looks fine (to me anyway)

Is it something to worry about?

Monitor.Win32.NetMon.a

If your running Win XP/2000, download and scan with Ewido Anti-Spyware v4.0 in "SAFE MODE".
Be sure to print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Then perform this online Virus scan:
[Watch the Address bar in IE. You may receive alerts that "This site might require the following ActiveX control...Click here to install...". Click on that alert and then Click Install ActiveX component.]
eTrust Antivirus Web Scanner. Be sure to read the eTrust Antivirus Scanner Help Guide before scanning.

Scaned with hijackthis, but the log looks fine (to me anyway)

HijackThis is an advanced tool that requires advanced knowledge about the Windows Operating System. Most of the log entries are required to run a computer and removing essential ones can potentially cause serious damage such as your Internet no longer working or problems with running Windows itself.

HijackThis is an enumerator and similar in some respects to a registry editor program which displays areas of the Windows registry where the majority of Viruses, Trojans, Spyware, Adware, and Malware reside. HJT will scan certain areas of your system and then create a log to help diagnose the presence of undetected malware in these known hiding places. It then relies on experts to interpret the log entries and determine what needs to be fixed.

And just because you "fixed" something with HJT, that does not mean you have a clean system. The "Fix" button in HJT does NOT remove the malware but rather it removes the associated registry entry. There are specific files and folders which must be deleted afterwards. HJT does NOT delete them.

Futher, removing entries in HJT before the problem is properly identified can make the malware undetectable to other detection and removal tools. Full system scanning tools like Ad-aware, Spybot S&D and SpySweeper will remove the registry entries as well as the related files which results in a more complete removal process. HJT this should only be used to clean up the entries left behind, after you have properly removed the malware.

If you do not have advanced knowledge about computers you should NOT fix anything using HijackThis without consulting a expert as to what to fix. If you choose to fix anything by yourself, you do so at your own risk.
