MediaBuilder.exe ? What shall I do?
« on: January 19, 2005, 04:32:02 PM »
xp MCE 2005 include SP2, Outpost 2.5 Pro, Avast4 free latest version,



Hello.

today I´ve got the message about a virus. I put it (it´s a trojaner, isn´t it?) into the quarantine. Now i´ve got three questions:

[Virus name: MediaBuilder.exe]

1. Was it right?
2. Can it be in the True Image 8.0 folder, and belongs the MediaBuilder to True Image, needs True Image this "virus" ?
3. It´s in the quarantine, what shall I do now and what can I do to stop those things?

Regards
pocahontas

It's probably a false alarm.
Just open the virus chest (when you start the Simple User Interface, click on the "Chest" image, or select it from the menu). Now, rightclick on the Media Builder.exe file in the Chest and select Email to ALWIL Software.

Where can I find the chest? In the "C:\Programme\Alwil Software\Avast4\DATA\chest" is no image and only one xml file and four files (from 00000001 till 00000004) of the Typ "datei" (means: file)

What I have to do now?
Please help!

By "opening the Chest" I mean starting the corresponding avast! program - as I described above. No need to work directly with the files...

The file is back on its place, but and its normal, the next scan gave me the next allert. Is there an allert every time or would it be fixed by the next update?

There is every likelyhood that it will be resolved soon in an iAVS update. In the meantime you could ad the file to the exclusions list for normal scans.

Windows 10 Home 64bit/ Acer Aspire F15/ Intel Core i5 7200U 2.5GHz, 8GB DDR4 memory, 256GB SSD, 1TB HDD/ avast! free 24.5.6116 (build 24.5.9153.762) UI 1.0.808/ Firefox, uBlock Origin, uMatrix/ MailWasher Pro/ Avast! Mobile Security
