    Hey guys,

    Recently I opened an email and attachment that a professor sent me. As soon as I downloaded the attachment (as I always do from this individual professor) my AVG antivirus popped up and recognized a virus. As it turned out, the professor's email was somehow hacked and someone sent virus' to everyone on his email list. The virus it recognized was a file labled as eplrr0.dll. Immediately I ran AVG and it located the virus but it wouldn't send it to the virus vault or delete the file. The file is located in
    C:Documents and Settings/WINDOWS/system32. I ran hijack this and couldn't locate the file on the list. I also restarted my computer into safe mode and tried to delete the file manually. Didn't work. I was just wondering if anyone anywhere has any idea how to get rid of this darn thing. Here's my log...

    Ok I scaned everything with Panda and although it did find and disinfect MANY files in my computer it did not fix this individual (virus) file. I downloaded the new HJT and here's what it looks like....

    O23 - Service: TrueVector Internet Monitor - Zone Labs Inc. - C:\WINDOWS\system32\ZoneLabs\vsmon.exe

    On a side note--and I'm not sure this helps at all--I searched the file on google and it displayed one of these forums and the user that had this virus showed it in his HJT log in the "O21" line. Mine can't be found anywhere but I know the sucker's in my system 32 folder. Once I try and manually delete the file of course a window pops up saying this action cant be done because the file may be in use.

    Again I'd love any feedback.

    I know that you ran panda but lets try this again you should always use two sites just to be on the safe side

    Run an online antivirus check from at least one and preferably 2 of the following sites

    http://security.symantec.com/default.asp?
    http://housecall.trendmicro.com/
    http://www.pandasoftware.com/activescan/
    http://www.ravantivirus.com/scan/
    http://www.anti-trojan.net/en/onlinecheck.aspx

    Be sure and put a check in the box by "Auto Clean" before you do the
    scan. If it finds anything that it cannot clean have it delete it or
    make a note of the exact file name and file location so you can delete it yourself.
