Symantec Antivirus DWH****.tmp files

Post by kamuiii on Wed 10 Feb 2010, 6:01 pm


For some reason, at around 1:00 a.m. symantec antivirus always opens and automatically starts to quarantine DWH****.tmp files. Every minute or so, it quarantines another DWH file. Here's a sample of the detection.

Scan type: Auto-Protect Scan
Event: Security Risk Found!
Risk: Trojan Horse
File: C:\Users\Jason Leung\AppData\Local\Temp\DWH762A.tmp
Location: Quarantine
Action taken: Quarantine succeeded : Access denied
Date found: February-10-10 1:53:59 AM

What is wrong? It appears to be a common problem but I can't find the fix (if any) for it. Please help.

Download OTL by OldTimer to your Desktop.

  • Close all windows and double click OTL.exe
  • Click Run Scan and let the program run uninterrupted
  • It will produce two logs for you, one will pop up - OTL.txt, the other will be saved on your Desktop - Extras.txt. Post both logs in this thread.
  • You may need to use two posts to get it all.
