Is this a false positive? nfwin.dll

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

When a friend's computer boots, she gets the message that nfwin.dll" can't be found and it comes from a Rundll error message. Anyone know anything about this and what it means?

Thanks as always,

Ellen

What this means is that there is a startup registry entry that wants to load nfwin.dll when the system is booted up. However nfwin.dll can not be found at the location where it is registered to be. Did your friend run an SAS scan and SAS detected nfwin.dll as an infection and quarantine it? I can find no info on nfwin.dll which most likely means that it is a malicious file and should be removed from the system.

If your friend can install Hijackthis from the link below and then post a Hijackthis scan log back here, I can/will instruct how to fix the registry entry so that your friend will no longer get the error message on startup. Freebie program Hijackthis V2.0.4 can be downloaded from the link below.
