Windows\system.exe

my antivirus is alerting me that windows\system.exe is a virus …but i couldnt delete it …as i gives the error …“cannot delete access denied”… i was login as administrator aslo…but it didnt del :frowning: wt to do now ???

What anti virus software do you use? What version of windows to you have?

I beleive the system.exe file is not a part of windows so this could be a valid virus. What Anti virus program do you use? It is possible that the system.exe file is being loaded at startup and thats why you can’t delete the file. Try booting the system in safe mode and let your anti-virus delete/quarantine the file.

I have just checked out the symantec web site to see if the system.exe is a virus. It is a Zoo Trojan Horse. You might not beable to update windows with this Zoo Trojan Horse on your computer, this web page will tell you how to delete it:

thanks buddy i have read the instructions…

It is a Trojan. You can delete it and any other file that “usually” denies access with the help of a software called unlocker. You can download it here: http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Miscellaneous/Unlocker.shtml

Or just put Windoes into Safe mode (F8 before the spash screen) and delete it then.
