    I wonder if this is part of SWB?

    Hi Ex_Brit,

    This .dll seems to be related to a BHO (Browser Helper Object) from what I could see in a HJT log I found with a google search, though there wasn't much information on it at all.

    (from a HJT log I found that contained the proxyspd.dll)
    O2 - BHO: Proxy Connection support DLL - {1DC9D850-044D-11E1-B3C9-00805E499D93} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\proxyspd.dll

    It isn't related to SpywareBlaster though, as SpywareBlaster does not install any BHO's.

    Can you navigate to the proxyspd.dll file and right-click on it, choose Properties, and see if there is any information there that might help identify it?

    What other anti-virus, anti-spyware, etc., programs are you using? And have you done any scans with them where anything was flagged as infected?

    Regards,

    snap

    After a lengthy process of elimination; search, scanning using Adaware SE, CWShredder, TrojanRemover and McAfee Viruscan, system restore, uninstall/reinstallation of Java Runtime etc. etc. (and not necessarily in that order!) I seem to have eliminated it completely.

    Thanks, I was just checking the possibilities.

    I'm glad you've been able to solve your question, Ex_Brit. It would have been nice to know what program it was related to, or how it came into your system as that would help us to determine if it was a legitimate file, or a malware file.

    If you did find any information on the file (BHO) while doing the scans, that you think might be useful to other's who may ask about the dll, it would be appreciated if you could post what you found, if anything.

    Either way, I am glad you could resolve the problem. :)

    Regards,

    I don't know what it was because I couldn't find it on my system. McAfee Viruscan said it had deleted it, unfortunately that led to other problems and I had to do various operations as above. I found it very strange that I got it the minute I sent a receipt to an email (legit) requesting same after having just booted up for the day. Quite honestly I think it was a false alarm.

    My WinPatrol couldn't figure it out either...so the mystery remains.
    P.S. Why aren't I getting email notifications from this board?? My settings are OK.
