Zone Alarm just stopped voblaizdupla.exe from accessing the internet. I denied it access as I don't know what it is or where it came from.
I Located it in C:\Windows\Prefetch. Would appreciate any info on this and what, if anything to do with it.
Thanks

You might want to scan

In reply to: voblaizdupla.exe

using your up-to-date antivirus or anti-trojan and antispyware scanners.
Also please upload it for single file scan at virustotal.com to find out whether it is infected.
If no infection found, please submit the file to your antivirus vendor (the one you are subscribed) or submit to Microsoft at avsubmit@submit.microsoft.com

You need to do the following when submitting a malware to Microsoft:
Compressed the file (zip or rar file) then password protect it with "infected"
Type "False Positive" or "False Negative" in the e-mail subject line to indicate the type of submission

Some users also talked about that filename. See discussion at Windows XP Security Admin forum

I have scanned with AVG, AD-Aware, SpyBot, and I have Spy Blaster running. According to all of them everything is clean. I even found the file and scanned it with AVG and it came out clean. I will try a couple more scans and if nothing shows up I will try to delete it manually.
Thank you all very much for your help. Dummies like me need all the help we can get. Thanks again.

Good thing you got firewall software

that alerts you on the said activity of the file and you did a good move in blocking an unknown file to make a communication. It's good idea to delete it since it is not a related to Windows or any other legitimate application that you have in your system.

I just deleted it manually, and hope that takes care of everything. Again, Thanks so much to each and everyone.

I would recommend rebooting and see if it comes back.

My firewall stopped this from accessing the internet. It is in my windows\system32 folder. I guess it tries to hide in different places.

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?
