    Woke up this morning to Prevx errors when booting up. It blocked c:\windows\system32\curslib.dll. Ran a full scan and it asked me to reboot. Problem still there when I booted up again.

    After other recent problems, I booted up on another clean disk and scanned that drive. Prevx found curslib.dll again. Since this was a free version of Prevx, I removed the file by hand. Booting up on the original drive, curslib is back.

    Something must be copying it into place upon bootup. I don't see anything in Start Menu/Programs/Startup, nor in msconfig/Startup.

    Boot into safemode with networking and let prevx take another shot at it.

    He said that he is using the free version which does not remove malware! The best thing to do is buy Prevx or try MBAM Free.

    Edit: I see that the first line that it sounds like he has the full version Sorry!

    Hmmm... And I mean that.

    I followed your advice, and Prevx came up all red (before doing any scanning). I briefly checked to see that curslib.dll hadn't reappeared yet. It hadn't. I let Prevx scan and it didn't find anything. I've booted back up normally and still don't see any problems.

    So things appear to be ok, but I don't have a comfortable feeling about it. I'd feel more comfortable if it found a problem and removed it. I'll stay booted on this (previously infected) drive and see if the cleansing sticks.

    There's nothing more than what I wrote in this thread. However, I did keep one of those curslib.dll files on a thumb drive, just in case. Should I just send a message to tech support with a link to this thread?

    You can if you wish - I suspect our researchers will be asking for scan logs to diagnose the issue as well, but let me know if you have any problems getting in touch :)
