Anybody ever hear of "dlder.exe" ? One of my younger siblings downloaded something infected cause earlier today whenever I tried to get into my computer or control panel, it would give me errors telling me to reboot my system cause explorer was having problems. So I rebooted and lo and behold Norton finds it trying to run itself in the windows start menu. I quarantined it so I could examine it. All Norton tells me is that its a backdoor trojan. I deleted it and all my errors are gone. Anybody have any info on this?

It doesn't appear to be a legitimate file of any kind. Backdoor trojans often use random names or names that are variations of legitimate files.

Do verify that all your programs are executing normally, as sometimes registry fixes need to be applied after removing certain trojans.
