✔ Best Answer

are you runing norton currently? if so the problem may be fixed by uinstalling, installing, and updating

the other possibility is a rare virus that makes a fake norton setup, that deleats certain norton files? perhaps run a quick check with malwarebytes.

The ordinal error is stating, that an export (ord 1109) cannot be found in the specified DLL's EAT (mapped into the current process' address space).

It's possible this DLL has been patched/had it's EAT hooked, but that's unlikely - are you able to run the application in a debugger, then check out the mapped DLL's EAT yourself?

i believe you are looking at a mascarading malware for more information i recommend

nortons file information is found in
\%Program Files%\Symantec AntiVirus\

while the other file added by AGOBOT.XM (or other malware)
is found where it is convienent for the worm/virus/trojan
