    Bonjour

    This morning, I opened my WinXP computer and the loading frozed at the « Welcome » window, the one with a blue background, just before the login screen. The only way to escape this is by force restarting (pressing my PC I/O button). I tried to opened my WinXP throw safe mode, but the it was also freezing at the loading (the place with the black background and the white text in footer).


    When I read my email on my Linux partition, I saw two email from Nod32 (i installed the AV recently). I think the problem come from the second one from [email protected]@@k.DLL.

    And also:

    When I first scan my PC, NOD32 detected [email protected]@@k.DLL in system32 folder. I than moved the file in c:\dev\ for analysing it with OllyDbg debugger and I renamed the one in system32. I saw on an AV website that this file could be really important for some program, and may block some program from running. Maybe an important winxp file need it (infected winxp file).

    My friend said me to do a « fixmbr » with the Recovery Console that comes on the WinXP Pro CD, but I know that this function will overwrite my grub (so no more Linux) and i dont have another CD to reinstall grub. Maybe this will fix my problem, or maybe it'll just be worse, without winxp and linux.

    Thanks a lot and goodnight

    [email protected]@@k.DLL.

    is a small dll files used in videogame trainers. it is commonly used when making your own trainer for a pc game on using someone elses

    it allows the trainer to respont to certain key commands like for red alert 2, shift + f1 enabled unlimited money when running the trainer.

    a virus scan and a spyware remover will find it as a bad file because that dll is able to capture keystrokes (thats the way a simple trainer works. the more complex ones don't need the dll.

    _______


    for your boot problem, are you able to get into safe mode. if so, try this

    click on start

    click on run

    type in msconfig and press enter


    click on launch system restore, then go back 1 day.

    Exactly, but I'm searching for another way to reach the program System Restore, I'll see in the WinXP Pro CD, but I don't think it'll be working.

    Someone else have an idea ?
