help with - ckcnvk.dll

    Question

  • Hi There,

    I was wondering if you could help me please.
    My AVG detected a trojan  with virus name  - "trojan horse Cryptic.BTF"  and  it  resided in :
    C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\ckcnvk.dll

    Since AVG deleted the trojan, every time we load the windows an error window appear and it says :

    error loading C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\ckcnvk.dll
    the specified module could not be found.

    I can not find any information what this file stand for, and I did run sfc /scannow
    but no positive result, Also the ckcnv.dll file exist in c:\windows\system32

    Does any one know what this file stand for, and if i dont need it how can i fix this error?

    Many thanks and highly appreciate your help.

    regards,
    Koko

  • Run MSCONFIG (Start->Run, type MSCONFIG and press enter).  Go to the Startup tab and uncheck the box that refers to it.

    Or, you can download CCleaner from http://www.piriform.com/, install it, run it, select Tools, select Startup and delete the entry altogether.

  • Try using Autoruns from sysinternals. This will give you much better information regarding startup items. Since the .dll was deleted by AVG, the start-up item should show file not found in autoruns.

  • It's not a service, it'll be in the Startup entries.

    But anyway, there are two other methods: Download and run Autoruns from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx and see if it's listed in there somewhere.

    -or-

    Run REGEDIT and do a search for ckcnvk.dll and delete any reference to it.  My guess would be you'll find an entry under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, but it really could be anywhere.
