Surface Pro 5 News - release date, UK price, features, specs
I am running McAfee Firewall on Winows 98 SE and have broaband internet access.
After visiting some MP3 download sites, and acquiring numerous viruses in the process (which McAfee VirusScan deleted), I am getting alerts on first boot from the Firewall that Rundll32 and Windows Explorer are trying to access the internet. I block the communication and all seems normal, but I can't think of any reason why these programmes should be trying to access the internet. Do I have some other form of virus / worm / trojan?
I have caried out a full system scan with a fully up to date version of VirusScan and nothing was reported.
I hav AdAware 6 installed, and ran it yesterday and deleted the detected items. I updated it today and ran it again. The updated version found another three items, which I deleted. I have now noticed that a new desktop shortcut has appeared and it's properties show c:\windows\rundll32.exe C:\windows\system\MSA64CHK.DLL,DllMostrar Matrix_CoolMP3. I will delete the icon, but should I also delete the other file - this MSA64CHK.dll? (I'll leave rundll32.exe of course!)
Looks like a browser hijack attemp by the coolmp3 site i assume you searched there site for mp3s,start in safe mode and scan again see if that cures the problem.As for the dll is this any help click here
I have a Netgear DG834 ADSL firewall router.
I have tried to add a new workstation to the network. I can see files accross the network on another WIN98 and an XP Home machine.
I get the ADSL icon up and traffic flows OK.
When I try to access the Internet the browser comes back with
"Forbidden - Access died by Access Control List"
How do I get into this list to OK the new connection to the Internet please?
It appears to be a dialer the removal instructions are click here
Firstly, Mr Chips - I don't think you meant to post your problem in this discussion!
Cool mp3 seemed to be the culprit. I followed the instructions on your link, but AdAware must have removed most of the traces already. I deleted the MSA64CHK.DLL file, but then on re-boot, the machine was stil trying to load the file. A further search of the registry revealled other calls of the DLL. I deleted these calls - one of which refered to Cool mp3, and all now seems well.
Thanks for all your help - don't think I'll bother with 'free' mp3 sites - seems like you get owt for nowt! (except a lot of trouble).
