Discovery Date: 03/12/2004
This program is detected as a "potentially unwanted application".
Detection was added to cover for an arguable file called "msxmlpp.dll " , having a filesize of 35328 bytes (decimal). The file is wriiten in MS-Visual C++ and it is internally compressed with upx.
The .dll file is usually dropped by other adware binary files. It has references to a commercial search site having the IP address 126.96.36.199. Apart from changing the Internet Explorer startup page and adding favorites, it also changes the drivers\etc\hosts file so that whenever a user searches for something on msn.com it gets redirected to the webpage from the adware.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
