Hi everyone,OS: Windows XP Home EditionFirewall: XP Internet Connection FirewallWhen checking that my firewall was in order this morning, I noticed this entry which was checked:dplaysvr (255.255.255.255:47624) 47624 UDPI don't know how it got there, and whether or not it is malicious or part of some program. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it OK to remove it?ThanksOliver
I'm told that 255x4 addresses are usually spoofed[it's the last available number]. So hope it didn't get in because it is probably ill intentioned.
A check on dplaysvr.exe on Google shows a couple of things to do with sound card drivers but it does include references connecting it to the W32.magitr.24786 virus!Have you run a virus check recently
Yes I ran a full virus scan this morning with no problems, also ran Adaware and Spybot (and Spybot found a keylogger which was deleted). So afer getting paranoid, I decided to check my firewall and found dplaysvr on it!Thanks for the posts.Oliver
Filenames that the virus can use includeCFGWIZ32.EXE CHLINST.EXE DPLAYSVR.EXE MAKETAG.EXE MKCOMPAT.EXE MLSET32.EXE MSOOBD.EXE MSOOBE.EXE OEMRNCE.EXE SETMODD.EXE SUCATREG.EXE SULFNBK.EXE UNREGASF.EXE Please note that these files are often found on uninfected systems, so their mere presence on your computer is not necessarily an indication of infection by this virusDPLAYSVR.EXE is a compac monitor driver.
sorry i should have provided the link to my cut and paste above click heredoes your monitor check for updates? :-)
I have a Hansol monitor, and to my knowledge it doesn't check for updates (I'm quite sure it doesn't).I also found just now that dplaysvr was a Microsoft DirectPlay server, for Microsoft games. I installed Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 a few weeks ago - possibly related?Oliver
my last was a poor attempt at humour,sorry.i think you could be correct about flight sim 04 online.DPLAYSVR.EXE(direct play helper) i have since found out is installed by direct x.
yes its part direct x.click start, click run and type dxdiag and click ok.click on the directx files tab and scroll down a bit.
