|I ran afoul of a site that downloaded malware to my CPU while doing a favor. I cleared it all out execpt for this: A fake Internet Explorer. The files are sqmapi.dll, ieinstall, ieuser, iexplore, iedw, hmmapi.dll and a folder called en-us. The folder contains copies of these with the suffix .mui.|
I can tell this is fake in a few ways:
1: The folder hadn't ever been in Files (x86). Now, it is.
2: It lists as having been 'modified' the day the site hit me.
3: The folder tells me acess is denied when I try to rename, move, or delete it. There is only one user, which has admin rights. When I enabled the 'Administrator' user (that bypasses all other security), I got the same message from that one.
4: All attempts to give myself permission gave me a 'acess denied' message. This led me to use the cmd box line to delete it. This function doesn't see it.
5: Avira Antivirus found, but could not remove the files. (When I deleted them one at a time, they cloned themselves, and deleteing them all lead to acess denied.)
Short of bombing my hard drive, how do I fix this crap?
