View Full Version : Could not delete file (yet)!

2009-04-14, 04:09
I installed Windows XP Pro on my laptop and Spybot S&D came up with Bredolab.B trojan. Googling that got me to this page (http://forums.spybot.info/showthread.php?t=46434). I then downloaded Rootalyzer to try to remove the str.sys file that RootAlyzer found, but it comes up with Could not delete file (yet)! I cannot find any other information about deleting the file.

I'm getting close to erasing the drive and starting fresh.

Any advice on removing str.sys file before taking this step?

I'll add a 0.3.4 release to the RootAlyzer download page (http://forums.spybot.info/downloads.php?id=8) later today. Next to using Win32 and native file removal routines, it'll use few of the standard unloading/terminating/unhooking procedures Spybot-S&D uses to get rid of files, and will queue for removal on reboot as well in case of impossible removal.
