Help me with this one. Nortons, housecall and pcpitstop have found a trojan virus in C:/windows\explorer\explorer.exe.
All 3 programs say they cant quarantine, repair, or delete because the program is currently in use.
I believe this is a spyware virus through "spin till u win". This is mentioned in another post here
thanks for any help.

OK, Thanks for looking. I have the troj_dlder or dider.exe virus discribed here
http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.cfm?catid=33&threadid=668900&STARTPA
The directions at the bottom of this page say to rename the dlder.exe file.
I do not find the dlder.exe file in search, but I found a hidden folder in windows called explorer that scans with norton to be the virus.
It will not delete.
will renaming this folder make it inactive?
All help appreciated

If it's a folder then off that puppy, it shouldn't be there. the file in the windows folder "explorer.exe" is your shell program and doesn't have it's own folder. I'm going to look up this virus now and see what I find.
