    Hi! Dont know where to post this query..hehe but i prefer here since im using NOD32.. My question is, why is it that im having this DLL in the root directory? Its a newly created file i guess (v. 5.1.2600.0; 03/20/2010; 17,408 bytes), while in the system32 folder, its (v. 5.1.2600.5512; 04/15/2008; 23,040 bytes).

    NOD32 detects nothing though..

    You could try Process Explorer. Menu item Find > Find Handle or Dll - enter the dll name (include the path), that should show any process with that dll loaded.
