Wasn't it winsys2.exe that we are looking for in your previous posts and not winsys32.exe ?

Well, I don't have the "winsys32.exe" file in "C:\Windows\SysWOW64 anymore".

But I still had that "madCHook.dll" I downloaded. Now when I didn't find the "winsys32.exe" I renamed it to "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAmadCHook.dll" and there wasn't an error message when I booted. I am going to move it completely from where it is now and delete it when I see that everything is ok.

Hello,

I just recently did a scan with Malbytes and the results were

Files Infected:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\madCHook.dll (Worm.Messenger) -> No action taken.

as you can see I have a madchook file. The Force classic c panel is fine I checked, but I am not sure about the madchook. I have been to the website www.madshi.net and have read their concerns about this program. I am going to remove it and see what happens.

Also....the winsys2.exe can be dangerous. read here http://www.what-is-exe.com/filenames/winsys2-exe.html

I did a scan at virustotal.com of the madchook file and this was the result.

Ah...it was winsys32.

http://www.file.net/process/winsys32.exe.html

I am going to check the malware bytes forum as well, but I can across this in a random search to figure out what to do



Any advice would be great........Thanks

Before removing - Send the sample to virus@avast.com zipped and password protected with the password in email body, a link to this topic might help and possible undetected malware in the subject.
 
Or you can also add the file to the User Files (File, Add) section of the avast chest (if it isn't already in the chest) where it can do no harm and send it from there. A copy of the file/s will remain in the original location, so you will need to take further action and can remove/rename that.
 
Send it from the User Files section of the chest (select the file, right click, email to Alwil Software). It will be uploaded (not actually emailed) to avast when the next avast auto (or manual) update is done.
