PDFCreator toolbar a malware with HitmanPro?

Recommended Posts


I have HitmanPro 3.5 as an additional on-demand scanner and it detected "PDFCreator_Toolbar.dll" as malware while "hitmanpro35.sys" was detected as a suspicious file. I have Avira 2009 Premium and updated scans do not show any signs of infections. I believe HitmanPro also uses Avira AntiVir in it's cloud.

I am attaching the files for your perusal. Both files are password protected to prevent accidental launch. (Password: infected).

My HJT and MBAM log files are below.

Thank you very much.
