    and I wonder -- with the seemingly CLOSED adware area -- where to post a question concerning a couple of adware .dlls that Norton found but can't delete?

    is there a place for this kind of ? here anymore?

    Hey Jim....Welcome back.

    The closed area I believe you are referring to concerns the posting of HiJack this logs for review. Feel free to ask any and all questions concerning ".dlls that Norton found but can't delete".

    For now....I have moved your thread to our other anti-virus software Forum....since your question concerns Norton.

    Okay...so this is irritating...

    Hey all...

    each nite, my Norton 2004 antivirus runs and every morning it reports that yup, it found the same two .dlls and would I like to remove them. I say yes, norton fails and I skip ahead. each morning is the same.

    but, I have tried to find these two to delete them myself....and that's the problem....I can't find them. using my search for a file also does not find them either....

    here's the two files and their "suposed" location...

    Source: C:\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files\CONFLICT.1\webdlg32.dll

    and

    Source: C:\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files\webdlg32.dll

    Neither file is "there" ? Also I am notified that this is a Adware.Iwantsearch threat....but I can't find these two to delete same. Tried Safe Mode, tried AdAware, tried Norton, tried the new MS Anti-Spyware puppies...none can do this...

    o_O

    Jim
