Windows Defender Finds Exploit:Win32/Wmfap Daily

  thegreypanther 09:28 21 May 2006

Every day I scan my PC using Microsoft's Windows Defender. And every day it finds Exploit:Win32/Wmfap
which I duly remove.
This seems to happen regardless of what use I put my PC to. Any explanations? Is Exploit:Win32/Wmfap something to worry about? or is this just a bug in Windows Defender?

Are you fully up to date with Windows Updates?

My Windows updates are set to be downloaded and installed automatically. I have just checked and all updates are present.
It is just possible that having installed Norton's Save and Restore the other day that Exploit:Win32/Wmfap has something to do with this program (the program, incidentally, is proving to be a total pain in the neck).

Run click here and check whether it indicates that any updates are not installed properly.

Thanks for the tip about the PC Audit. I shall make sure that I have this to hand for the future.
Anyway, the audit showed that all was present and correct.
The more I think on it, the more I am sure that the apparent problem is due to recently installing Norton's Save and Restore.
