Did NOT run the executable.

In process of running AVG 7.5, Spybot S&D, AdAware in SAFE mode. Also Windows LiveOne Full Scan. Nothing of value yet....

Googled pmii.exe with 1 result http://spywarefiles.prevx.com/RRBIJB3075665/GDEG.EXE.html


Directed to PREVX(if it is them and are they reputable) and indicates to run GDEG.EXE from their site to resolve this "issue"

Listed as Trojan w32 gen and "bad".

Is this the real fix or am I being tricked into more trouble...????

GDEG.EXE is their designation for the malware that you have. Prevx is legitimate and you can use it free for a short time period. Let us know if it took care of the problem.

Nothing found....In "Smart Scan"

Under "Scan and Monitor" ...
  • File Scan
  • Process Scan
Ran both with nothing found..In Smart Scan..

Tried to run them in Safe Mode...Would NOT allow.

Will now do Complete/Full Sysyem scan for both File and Process Scan options.

Note: I run AVG 7.5 as Real-Time virus protection. Do I need to disable it as not to run 2 virus programs.....Is Prevx2.0 Real Time protection????

Post a Hijack This log. You may have a variant so new that none of the antimalware programs are picking it up. Interesting that Prevx isn't finding it.
Follow the instructions in the link below. Be sure to post the log in the Hijack This forum. Not In This Forum.
