Is content in NISX64 driver folder MALWARE?
Hello, I'm checking couple of things.
Norton Internet Security 2009 beta (installed over Norton 360 v2.x)
OS: Windows Vista Home premium, x64
1. start sysinternals tool 'autoruns'
2. select Drivers tab
Are following driver files proper for these installation?
SYMDNSDNS Filter Driver Symantec Corporation c:\windows\system32\drivers\nisx64\1000000.078\symdns.sys
SYMFW Firewall Filter Driver Symantec Corporation c:\windows\system32\drivers\nisx64\1000000.078\symfw.sys
SYMNDISVNDIS Filter Driver Symantec Corporation c:\windows\system32\drivers\nisx64\1000000.078\symndisv.sys
SYMREDRVRedirector Filter Driver Symantec Corporation c:\windows\system32\drivers\nisx64\1000000.078\symredrv.sys
This nisx64 folder isn't viewable in the drivers directory, it seems that it does not exist. Still Autoruns doesn't prompt 'file not found' for these.
I tried my luck and disabled these, but they appeared again after boot.
Google and Norton search doesn't say much about nisx64. Seems like problems. Are these mal?
