Worm? Can you fish with it?

Threaded View
While checking to see why my wireless connection was not working this  
morning, I found a message that my computer is infected with MSIL/Necast.D.

I have run three scans using three different programs ... they have not  
found anything about any "worm".

My wireless connection is working fine in the living room, but not when  
I move to the back of the house. That's a new one! It was working fine  
last night. Makes no sense to me.

Computers are such fun!! What do I do now?

What application actually stated your "...computer is infected with  
MSIL/Necast.D" ?

It has no idea about malware.  It can be Windows Defender, Microsoft  
Security Essentials (MSE) or some other installed anti malware application.

You said you ran "three scans using three different programs" but did not  
identify them nor detail what fully installed anti virus/anti malware  
applications are installed.

If you have a Microsoft software flagging MSIL/Necast.D then it would be in  
a log of Windows Defender or MSE or it will be in the Event Log(s).

Thanks! I'll figure it out.

I ran a scan with Malwarebytes ... AVG ... and Microsoft Emergency  
Response Tool

P.S.

I just ran a scan with Windows Defender. It found nothing. I think that  
other Microsoft doodad lied to me. [g]

I'm not going to worry about it now. If this computer quits running or  
starts doing flips, it will not matter.

I just looked on Google for that message, and bleeping computers had one  
person with the same message and it seemed to be an infected MBR (worm).

    As an on-topic addendum, I tried the new version of the
Emsisoft Emergency Kit.

    http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/eek/

    Last time I ran version 1_point_something it came up with 100
false positives, and missed most of a small collection of malware I
had.
    This time just 2 false positives (Cain and a hacker's tool),
and it ID 'd ALL of my little collection. Worth a try.

Hi Shadow!

I was going to download your suggestion, but my laptop is dead for the
second time in two days, so it doesn't matter at this point. [g]

Worms and viruses (or other bugs and creatures) are the least of my
problems now. La cucaracha!
