Hello Tech Guys-
I have recently managed to get rid of about 3 of those trojan programs that load flashing alerts onto the bottom toolbar that redirect you to a website that tells you to buy trojan removal software :cool: . Now when I run my AOL virus scanner (McAfee), there is just one infected file, in my windows sys32 file: xlibgfl254.dll What is this file? My McAfee kept asking me if I wanted to delete it because they could not clean or quarantine it. I'm sure it was not wise, but I Okayed the delete. Mcafee unable to delete it. I opened in safe mode and tried to delete it manually, still would not let me. :mad: Is this file native to WindowsXP and neccessary to operate my system? How much danger am I in if I just leave it? Mcafee identified the virus as a "trojan downloader" or somesuch. There are no other (visible) problems other than the warning I get from McAfee everytime I start AOL.

I also have Spybot search and destroy software.

Any wisdom you could shine my way would be appreciated.

Hi, It's a trojan and is deleteable but you need a special tool.

None of the programs will clean it, but there is a way to deal with it.

I found a thread, not here at TSG, but a close relative of ours...
where it is fixed. It does involve a little Registry editing since this malware changes security zone settings for you, so you have to put the settings back manually.
It would be wise to both make a new Restore Point, and back up the Registry, before doing the fixing. As you may know, an average Registry backup is quite good sized, (around 39 Megabytes for my home computer with XP made last night). It takes only a minute or so, and the backup can be saved in a folder right at the root of the C: drive or anywhere you prefer such as a CD.

Go to Start > Run
  • regedit
Click OK.
  • On the left side, click to highlight My Computer at the top.
  • Go up to "File > Export"
    • Make sure in that window there is a tick next to "All" under Export Branch.
      Leave the "Save As Type" as "Registration Files".
      Under "Filename" put backup
  • Choose to save it to C:\ or somewhere else safe so that you will remember where you put it (don't put it on the desktop!)
  • Click save and then go to File > Exit.
This is so the registry can be restored to this point if we need it. It may take a minute. Just let it go until it's done.

To Create a new Restore Point:

You have to have System Restore turned "On" and the service running> you can verify that it is enabled by right clicking My Computer, > Properties > System Restore tab > if it says "Monitoring" it is enabled.

Create the new Point:

Single-click Start and point to All Programs.
Mouse over Accessories, then System Tools, and select System Restore.
In the System Restore wizard, select the box next the text labeled "Create a restore point" and click the Next button.
Type a description for your new restore point. Something like "After trojan/spyware cleanup". Click Create and you're done.

OK, here is the thread about this same malware, called by Panda scan, the Adware:SecurityError

In that thread, at first they deal with some common other ad and spyware, then they get into removing what you have, and correcting the Registry. Not for the faint of heart.

Hi, It has been told to me that you don't need to do all that Registry correction as in the Castlecops thread, and we can help you delete the bad file and possibly other items, this way:

We need to be able to see the location of all the associated files, so please do this:


go to Click here to download HJTsetup.exe
  • Save HJTsetup.exe to your desktop.
  • Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Hijack This.
  • Continue to click Next in the setup dialogue boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialogue.
  • Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
  • Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
  • At the final dialogue box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then save the log and then the log will open in Notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.


Download ComboFix to your Desktop.

Reboot to Safe mode:

Restart your computer and begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard just before Windows starts to load. If done properly a Windows Advanced Options menu will appear. Select the Safe Mode option and press Enter.

Perform the following actions in Safe Mode.
  • Double click combofix.exe and follow the prompts.
  • When finished, it will produce a log for you. Post that log in your next reply.
Note: Do not mouseclick combofix's window while it's running as that may cause it to stall
Restart the computer normally, into regular Windows, and run a new scan with Hijackthis, post
both Combo Fix and HJT logs here in a reply.

Gone but Never Forgotten

1. Please download The Avenger by Swandog46 to your Desktop.
  • Right Click on to open the file
  • Extract avenger.exe to your desktop so avenger.exe shows on your Desktop.

1. Please double click on Avenger.exe.

2. Copy all the text contained in the code box below to your Clipboard by highlighting it and pressing (Ctrl+C):

Files to delete:


Note: the above code was created specifically for this user. If you are not this user, do NOT follow these directions as they could damage the workings of your system.

3. Now, start The Avenger program by clicking on its icon on your desktop.
  • Under "Script file to execute" choose "Input Script Manually".
  • Now click on the Magnifying Glass icon which will open a new window titled "View/edit script"
  • Paste the text copied to clipboard into this window by pressing (Ctrl+V).
  • Click Done
  • Now click on the Green Light to begin execution of the script
  • Answer "Yes" twice when prompted.
4. The Avenger will automatically do the following:
  • It will Restart your computer. ( In cases where the code to execute contains "Drivers to Unload", The Avenger will actually restart your system twice.)
  • On reboot, it will briefly open a black command window on your desktop, this is normal.
  • After the restart, it creates a log file that should open with the results of Avenger’s actions. This log file will be located at C:\avenger.txt
  • The Avenger will also have backed up all the files, etc., that you asked it to delete, and will have zipped them and moved the zip archives to C:\avenger\
5. Please copy/paste the content of c:\avenger.txt into your reply.


Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)
Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.
(You do that by clicking the .zip folder on the desktop, and select "Extract All" in the wizard window, use the Browse button, and change whatever shows as the location to unzip TO, to "Desktop", and click OK, uncheck "Show Extracted Files" first.
Find the newly created SmitFraudFix folder....
Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"; a text file will appear, which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.

Note : process.exe is detected by some antivirus programs (AntiVir, Dr.Web, Kaspersky) as a "RiskTool"; it is not a virus, but a program used to stop system processes. Antivirus programs cannot distinguish between "good" and "malicious" use of such programs, therefore they may alert the user.

So, two logs....Avenger, and SmitFraudfix.
