What do I do to fix this? Help please
« on: February 06, 2011, 10:50:29 PM »
I have just completed a full system scan & it indicates no viruses were found..however,
it then say 'not all files could be scanned'. It appeared to be one item as follows:

name\local settings\application data\spoon\3.24.09\_xencode\x86\vmx.dll

System cannot find path specified.

1. Why couldn't it be scanned? 2. And what does it mean & 3. what should I do? 4. what is a vmx.dll file?

Thank you in advance for any help. I'm just very concerned about this & have never seen it before.

Generally files that can't be scanned are not an issue, not an indication that they are infected or suspect.

Did you install spoon 3.24.09 whatever that is ?

Quote
vmx.dll is a Xenocode Virtualization Runtime Extensions process which belongs to Xenocode Virtualization Runtime from Code Systems Corporation.

Given the word virtualisation, I don't know if this is somehow hidden or not permanent.

Are you actually able to find this file in that location ?

Thank you for your reply.
No, I did not install anything Spoon(?) that I am aware of. I have never heard of it.

I did try to locate the file & under my Documents & Settings there was a file App
Data.  I clicked on it to open and there was nothing inside or at least nothing that appeared. No text inside of any kind.

So, I have no clue. Guess I'll just leave it alone. Not sure what action to take when it comes up in the Scan. Such as delete, move to chest, leave alone.
I'll just leave it alone unless someone else here lets me know some action should be taken.

Thank you for your kind reply.

I would check add remove programs and see if there is anything there for Spoon or anything related to Xenocode Virtualization Runtime from Code Systems Corporation.

Of course it is possibly that this may have been installed by some other software requiring virtualisation, etc..

Thank you. You are so right. It is in my Programs called Spoon Sandbox Manager. Have no idea why it's there or how it got there.

Apparently this was originally Xenocode & has now changed to Spoon Studio

Do I need this at all? Is it possible I need it for something I am running?
Is there some portion of this app being used in the Avast Anti-Virus? I would hate to delete something I really need.

Thank you for your help!

Here's what I found:

Spoon
Description from the manufacturer:

Spoon virtualization lets you run desktop apps anywhere with no installs – at work, at home, or on the road.

Spoon Studio was previously named Virtual Application Studio and manufactured by Xenocode, a Code Systems Corporation company.

Manufacturer: Spoon

Novell ZENworks Application Virtualization solution is also based on Xenocode's virtualization technology.

You're welcome.

Well if you aren't using a sandbox of any sort I don't see why you would need to have a sandbox manager.

So based on the program description you should have an idea if you have a) every used it ro b) have a need for it, unfortunately I can't make that decision.

Thinking back, I think I actually used this one time to test my Store Home Page in various browsers. 

Additionally, it appears to not be hurting anything so guess I'll just leave it for now.

I really appreciate your thoughts and help.
