AVG Business Edition reports C:\Windows\System32\rpcss.dll is infected and cannot be removed automatically. I have run Spybot, Malwarebytes, AVG and Combofix all from safe mode. While numerous other issues were resolved this issue remains.
I do not want to just delete the file because doing some research rpcss is related to Remote Procedure Call.
AVG did not detect anything in Safe Mode.
I have attached a jpeg of further details provided by AVG Admin Console.
I have an infected rpcss.dll file that AVG cannot remove. I don't have the Windows installation disk but I do have a laptop with the same vs of Windows 7. I was going to copy it from my laptop and use it to replace the infected one on my computer but although both files have the same date created and date modified, the laptop file is 500kb and the infected one is 508kb.
Roger, Please see top of this webpage. You may not have noticed but this forum has now been virtually closed down to become 'read only'.

It may be possible for Windows to replace the file automatically:
- Goto Start > All Programs > Accessories
- Right click 'Command Prompt' > Run as adminstrator
- Copy this into command prompt and press 'enter'
SFC will scan the file and will replace it on reboot if found to be different from the original.
If this doesn't help, as long the version of rpcss.dll is the same and copied from the same operating system and service pack, then there shouldn't be any problems. The discrepency in file size is probably because the infected one has been modified.
