Hi I'm new here, and this is my first post.
I'm freaking out at the moment because I just found these strange files in my temp folder (C:\Documents and Settings\Ben\Local Settings\Temp). There were about 4 different things that wouldn't delete, or came back after a reboot. I just deleted ones that I couldn't seem to get rid of before (Woso0.dll, and woso1.dll). I have no clue what they are associated with. The main area of concern is an executable file called 'Help.exe'. Every once in a while (This time it happed after I deleted the woso.dll's) a DOS type window will pop up with another window. In the other window, it says:
16 bit MS-DOS Subsystem
The NTVDM CPU has encountered an illegal instruction.
CS:054b IP:01bf OP:63 65 6e 74 65 Choose 'Close' to terminate the application
I'm no computer whizz when it comes to these things, so if I just unknowingly made myself extremely vulnerable by typing up that info, could a mod edit my post, or could a nice person let me know? ; P
So, again, the problem files are:
Am I infected, or just paranoid?
Even if those files aren't malicious in any way, I'm still curious as to what they're associated with and why they're in my temp folder.
Any help or info would be great!
