I am running the CIS on my Xp Home sp3 PC with no problems since a long time.
Today I scanned my computer with three additional programs.
Malwarebytes and DrwebCureIt found no infections, but I also scanned with Norman Malware Cleaner and it contained the following at the beginning of its log.
Running pre-scan cleanup routine... Potentially unwanted registry value: 'HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows --> AppInit_DLLs = C:\WINDOWS\system32\guard32.dll' Modified registry value: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows --> AppInit_DLLs from ' C:\WINDOWS\system32\guard32.dll' to '' Potentially unwanted settings in service: '(null)' Cleaning operation failed (Error code: 0x0000042C)
Number of malicious objects found: 2
Number of malicious objects cleaned: 1
Im not that tech savy to understand what has been done there.
I do not assume the entries were harmful, but I’m not sure if Norman changed anything important there when trying to clean them.
Since guard32.dll seems to be a part of Comodo I am posting it here and looking for some input.
