How to find out which process is using file HPB025.DLL?
Posted on 2007-08-01
McAfee reports virus on the file C:\windows\system32\HPB025.DLL (in Windows XP Pro). It can not remove or delete it. So I also try to rename this file in normal mode or safe mode, it fails because the file is used by another process.
The time stamp for the file is April 2, 2007.
Log entry from McAfee:
8/1/2007 10:13:01 AM Move failed (Clean failed) DOMAIN\user IEXPLORE.EXE C:\WINDOWS\system32\HPB025.dll Downloader.gen.a (Trojan)
Q#1. Is this file a known virus? If yes, how dangerous is it?
Q#2. How to find out which process is using this file if windows says it is used by another process?
Q#3. If it is a virus, how to remove it?
