AVG has found an archive bomb d2htm110.exe in AVG's scan.

I cannot find this file using any kind of search utility and the file cannot be visibly seen in Explorer.

How do get rid of this file if I cannot see it or find it. Hidden files option is active on all directories.

Thank you in advance.

Hiya,

Is AVG flagging this file as malicious, has it been quarantined by AVG?

Try the following scan, if your security flags it as malicious accept the alert, the program is harmless.

Please download SystemLook from one of the links below and save it to your Desktop.
Download Mirror #1
Download Mirror #2

  • Double-click SystemLook.exe to run it.
  • Copy the content of the following codebox into the main textfield:

    Code:
    :filefind
    d2htm110.exe
  • Click the Look button to start the scan.
  • When finished, a notepad window will open with the results of the scan. Please post this log in your next reply.
Note: The log can also be found on your Desktop entitled SystemLook.txt

What did AVG want to do with that file? did it give options. I think the best thing to do is upload for analysis.

We need to upload a file to Jotti

1. Click HERE to get to Jotti's site.

2. At the top of the Jotti window, use the Browse button to locate the following file on your system:

C:\Documents and Settings\Patrick\Desktop\ProgramExeFilesToInstallOnNewDrive\FoldersToPlaceOnNewDesktop\New Program exe files\d2htm110.exe

3. Once you have located the file, click SUBMIT and the content of the file will be uploaded by the site and analysed.

4. Please provide me with the results of the analysis.

Upload a File to Virustotal
Please visit Virustotal
  • Click the Browse... button
  • Navigate to the file C:\Documents and Settings\Patrick\Desktop\ProgramExeFilesToInstallOnNewDrive\FoldersToPlaceOnNewDesktop\New Program exe files\d2htm110.exe
  • Click the Open button
  • Click the Send button
  • If you get a message saying File has already been analyzed: click Reanalyze file now
  • Copy and paste the results back here please.

Let me know what the results are,

Kevin

The file cannot be seen or found. I have used search tools and Explorer but the file never appears. I can go to the folder/directory and the file is not listed. The only place the file appears is in AVG. When AVG quits running, the red warning text and the green check mark also disappear.

That is very odd because SystemLook has give a navigational address. Do you know what that file is for? or where it came from? You want me to try and shift it for you...

I am guessing the file is downloaded freeware, but I am not sure. Whatever it is, wherever it is, this is bizarre. is there any way I can take the address given from the download you referenced above and find the file myself?

Wait minute! AVG just did its thing and says the files were healed and I now have the option of deleting the file. Thank you for the info above. This is the third or fourth try using AVG.
