 system32.exe Post a Reply  
From: Rebecca on 10/02/2003
I just bought a new computer and everytime I restart it, a pop-up window appears saying C: windows\system32\system32.exe will not run. I think it's a virus, but scanning software can't detect any virus'. Please help! My computer is literally 2 days old!

system32.exe is not a system file in Windows 2000 operating systems. The author of this trojan used this name because it's similar to system file names to avoid deletion by unexperienced users. There are several viruses/worms/trojans that create a malicious file named system32.exe. If the malware detected on your computer was 'Backdoor.SysXXX' then read this document in Symantec's knowledge base for removal instructions:

If you are not able to delete the suspicous file(s) then reverse the changes made to the registry first, reboot your machine and then delete the file(s).
