I am using Kaspersky Anti-Virus and it has flagged dmocy.exe as

Kaspersky reccommends I delete the file. It is located at
C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\dmocy.exe, has a size of 51Kb and the same Date
Modified of 8/4/2004 00:56 as a lot of files around it alphabetically
that are Microsoft's, some involved with disk management. I can find no
mention of dmocy.exe on the web nor in Microsoft's Knowledge Base.
Deleting something having to do with disk management is not my idea of

Has Kaspersky detected the Win32.Small trojan inside dmocy.exe or is
there a way to determine if this is a false alarm? Where could I find
more information given no luck in searching across the web?

Thanks kindly, Steve

Submit the file to VT and/or Jotti for analysis. If Kaspersky is the
only AV flagging your file as malicious, then either KL is ahead of
the others or it is a FP.

Virus Total Online Scan

Jotti's Online Malware Scan

If this is a new exploit, it will be submitted to all vendors who flag
it. Anytime KAV flags a file, submit it to KL through your KAV GUI for
analysis. If it is a FP, it will be removed in subsequent DB updates.

Fastest way around this.

Label the Subject as 'False Positive?' and send the file in a password
protected zip to newvirus@kaspersky.com They will tell you - besides
us guessing here.
