Taskman.exe and something else? - Admins please help!

Recommended Posts

I done a scan today, I'm worried that I'm infected. But I scanned with Avira Anti Virus, it didn't pick it up.

But A-Squared found: "Trojan.Win32.Genome.dbpb!A2" in C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\systray.exe and C:\WINDOWS\system32\dllcache\taskman.exe

I have tried going into the directory, WINDOWS\system32, but I can't find dllcache folder anywhere? Where is it? I even searched for it but can't find it?

These are Windows program, how can it get infected? - I heard from some people this is a false positive, I don't really know exactly what false positive is, can someone explain? Why did it come up as a virus? I don't understand!

Hi Armpits, welcome to the forum

That was False Positive detection and it was already fixed .

please read this thread

http://support.emsisoft.com/topic/1606-genomedbpb-genomedlyp-false-positives/

Update a-squared

False Positive is an error on behalf of security software

Please find an answer to Peter in our old forum here - there is more detailed explanation

Thanks Lynx,

Just wondering how did they get this error? And why did it target something that is not a virus, a virus? Is it the way you program the program? Like you did a mistake or something?
