Those are valid and needed operating system files. It was probably AOL that changed them in the first place and seeing as AOL doesn't exactly share info with the rest of the world, she may have to talk to them for help. Is she having a problem with the computer or was this a one time thing?
Roddy, this just started two days ago.While she was online playing a game that message just popped up.Since then she cannot get online as the same error message keeps popping up.
Im at a loss with no aol install disk to run.Iv looked at her Dell disks and none mention aol.
She long ago hit the end of the free 6 mo deal from dell and says she responded at that time to aol popup for there service.Doing so online gives her no disk to work with.She pays every 6 mo for their service.
I will inform her of HER unpleasant task of phone contact ahead.:o( not my job. lol--- I hope!
Good luck Fish, I wish I could
have given you a better answer.
you can't win um all.lol
Your efforts are always appreciated.Thank's Fish
(NT) You're welcome Fish :)
Fish and roddy32
It was not AOL that changed those files....IT was (AVG)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ON 8/8/2005 when AVG had there bad virus def. file and removed or changed a bunch of windows files. Those same files were changed in my computer..Changed to what, I don't know??? My computer still works So FAR...
roddy32 it was the same time basil posted that TROJAN Horse Dropper.Agent.8.B that removed the (cisvc.exe) file. Which is still in my AVG virus vault.
The "cisvc.exe" file that was involved in that false positive is NOT one of the files that was in that log. This is a different situation completely IMO. I have been to the AVG forum numerous times about that false positive from the other day and NONE of the files that Fish posted were mentioned anywhere. Also, I never saw anybody at the forum reporting that they lost AOL because of it either.
No it is not
and I wish I knew how to post my AVG log file from 8/8/05. Because that is when my "cisvc.exe" file was deleted shown as (backup copy) and those 5 files Fish posted are Shown as (CHANGED) in my AVG Log file. I don't use AOL.
Maybe Fish will see this
Rick, I don't know. I don't use AOL or AVG myself. I'm just going by the 100 or so posts that I read the last few days at the AVG forum about this and I never saw any mention of those files. Maybe I just missed them. Everything that I read was about the ""cisvc.exe" and the "Dropper.Agent.8.B". Regardless, I do not have an answer either way.
Hi, I posted a reply to Rick in the other thread on this subject. On the AVG 'virus and removal forum' there's a reference to these same changed files mentioned in the post by Hydrangea and the moderators response. May help shed some light.. hopefully.
Yes, I saw your response in that
thread. I think the AVG forum is the only place that is going to know for sure.
(NT) Yes. Quite agree.
