How can I resolve this?

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.

Thank You

Hi tesla1886,

The detection is on an operating system file so will need replacing. You should be able to get a clean version of the file from a matching operating system or Windows installation disc.

To replace the file, it depends on the operating system. For XP, use the Recovery Console or Vista+, use the repair your computer option - - command prompt can be accessed here to replace the system file.

Another option would be to use the AVG Rescue CD to replace the file -

Instructions for File Manager utility can be found here -

Let me know if you need any detailed instructions.
