    Default MSXOS.dll ?????

    I cannot remove this file using Spybot S&D, nor with the McAfee-provided security system included with AOL 9.0 Security Edition. After repeated scans with both systems (Spybot and AOL-McAfee), I receive the message that there is a malicious file at C:\\WINNT\system32\MXSOS.dll. Neither system can repair or delete the file.

    Searching Google for MXSOS.dll, the first hit is to PREVX. The company website for PREVX directs one to download PREVX1. I happened to look at the user reviews for PREVX1 on CNET and the reviews are uniformly bad. Supposedly, PREVX1 is a nightmare, and even difficult to uninstall! As a non-sophisticated user, I don't need to compound my problems.

    On Google, virtually all of the other entries commenting about MSXOS.dll are in Chinese. I do not read Chinese. The computer-generated translations are primitive, however, one webpage seemed to imply that MSXOS.dll is a Trojan.

    If there is a program I can purchase that will get riid of it, I will do that. But PREVX is the only company I have found, thus far, that detects this malware.

    Help!

    Thanks in advance.
