Thread: Just Found Gendel32.exe ?

  1. #1
    Hi,

    Just Noticed a file called GENDEL32.EXE in my Crive!!!
    Does anyone know what it is?
    Or how it got there?

    I note it has been there since June 2003!!! (blimey I must be going blind)
    I have run and have up-to-date Norton System works/ Internet Security
    and also run up-to-date Spysweeper!
    And neither of these programs can recognise it as a Virus/ Spyware??

    What should I do with it?
    I've Googled it but couldn't find much.

    Cheers!!

    you can try to disable it from the startup list and maybe you can notice any change of a program that was not loaded correctly..

    it doesnt seem to be a virus, so its not a big deal if it stays there I think..

    Run Spybot S&D and see if it picks it up.

    No doubt, Google is your friend.

    I did further reading and it seems to be a part of some game apps as well as others web apps too. Not sure if it's truly undesirable or not but probably does qualify as malware.

    Saving a copy, removing it, if no negative results, leave as is. If not, put it back.

    /i got no more answers.

    peace...

    How hard is it for you to read the first initial post?

    I've Googled it but couldn't find much.
    And I could not find much either.

    QUOTE : I&#39;ve seen three things, it could have been, its been called a sex dialer, part of a search toolbar, or part of a games expansion pack, either way its crap, I read all the english and german sites they all said the same thing.
