Thread: RegObj.dll, bogey?

    Default RegObj.dll, bogey?

    ZAP 7.0.462 yesterday seemed a little excitable (re false positive on FlashUtil9e.exe).
    It may have found a real bogey in regobj.dll . The one on my system had no version info, File Date 6/25/1997, MD5 849600182E3B6D60D5911B6E92191153 (which does not turn up in a google search).

    Operating System:Windows XP Pro x64
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Pro

    Good chance this is legit and not malware:

    ActiveX control RegObj.dll see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297292

    I don't have one. but maybe you should have one if you have XP Pro (and I assume not 64 bit OS).

    Right click the file and open the Properties and determine the vendor, release, name and version and the exact time/date of install and upgade.

    Interesting find, but that one has an 'i' in it's name.

    Yes the .exe has an "i". The .dll has no "i". These two are seperate files and are not to be mixed together.See :

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/279847

    regobj.dll is ruled by the regobji.exe

    RegObj.dll can be part of VB 6.

    The extracted RegObj.dll has the same MD5 hash as ZAP complained about yesterday, so I'd say it is a confirmed false positive.

    see http://forum.zonelabs.org/zonelabs/b...essage.id=3559

    this poster did include the reg keys (and these are correct for the corresponding file).

    I also had this show up about 2 days ago. I didn't find any reference to win32.backdoor.tobuf from a search here and I was going to put the file, regobj.dll, in quarantine. Instead I decided to do a full scan with Kaspersky (what the hey, one was due), followed by a scan of that particular file. Both were negative and I've been doing a &quot;skip once&quot; since then. I decided to check back today.

    FYI, right-clicking on my copy of the file (regobj.dll) does NOT produce any info in Win Explorer (XP SP2). Mine is also dated 6/25/1997, size 40,448 bytes, size on disk 40,960.

    Thanks to everyone for your posts on this. Looks like another false positive.

    Well, I ran ZA ver. prior to latest and it had a couple of files that said were virus', so I deleted them.
    I have not be able to open two specific urls with IE7 since. One does use Flash, and so I installed the latest
    ver. of Flash, but still no go. Foxfire will open fine.

    I tried to find the regobj.dll at the links provided but they do not seem to give me the correct file....only regobji.exe.

    How do I get this file so I can see if it solves the problem. I installed VB6 that I had but it did not help.

    Not sure what the files were so I am shooting in the dark, but probably Flash files listed in this Forum that do not get reinstalled.

    Can you email me this file? And any others that ZA said were virus recently.

    You can download the file directly from Microsoft. Quoting from their web page at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/279847 near the bottom of the page:

    <blockquote>You can download RegObj.dll from the following Microsoft Web site:

    http://download.microsoft.com/download/vb60pro/update/6.0/w9x2k/en-us/regobji.exe</blockquote>

    Note that the .dll is contained within the .exe.

    I strongly recommend that you do NOT accept any executable files by e-mail from anyone you do not know very well. And even then it's a bad idea to obtain any executable via e-mail.
