    Hello...having trouble with a co-workers computer again. We just got everything fixed on Friday! Or so we thought. She now gets a Norton window popping up after scanning telling here she cannot repair or access the following file C:\windows\system32\unlodctl.exe. I googled the filename and it sounds bad, but I don't know how to get rid of it.

    Here is what we did on this machine just a couple of days ago (if this link works...) Previous post

    Here is the latest HJT logfile for your viewing pleasure! Thanks!

    Hello thejayman68! :D

    Turn off System Restore by right-clicking on My Computer and choosing "Properties". Click on the "System Restore" tab and put a tick next to "Turn System Restore off". Click "OK".

    Go to My Computer and click on "Tools" then "Folder Options. Click on the "View" tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is enabled. Click "OK".

    Find and delete the following file:
    C:\WINDOWS\System32\unlodctl.exe

    If you are unable to find the file, restart your computer in Safe Mode and delete it.

    Restart your computer and post a fresh HijackThis log back on this thread.
