I have recently started getting error msgs when using Excel, Word and other
3rd party applications with Windows ME. eg: "BTNHND has caused an invalid
page fault in module BTNHND.EXE at 0197.0040116b." Sometimes I can close the
application and restart, sometimes the whole screen freezes. This is
happenning very often now.

Mart:

If it is spyware then Stinger won't help as it only targets ~53 viruses or Trojans, but
mostly worms, and their respective variants.

If you think that there is a virus, Trojan or worm then suggest using the Trend Micro
Sysclean utility as it is a broad-spectrum virus removal tool that has a library of ~90,000
instead of only 53 viruses and their variants.

I have written a front end utility to make the use of Trend Sysclean easy as it
automatically downloads the needed files and runs SYSCLEAN.COM and when subsequently used,
the utility keeps the files updated.

Direct URL --
http://www.ik-cs.com/programs/virtools/Sysclean_FE.exe

Execute; SYSCLEAN_FE.EXE
Choose; Unzip
Choose; Close


Execute; c:\sysclean\SYSCLEAN_FE.BAT
{ or Double-click on 'SYSCLEAN_FE Link' in c:\sysclean }

There is a PDF Help File included.

Thanks for the update Dave. As you saw, I only copied Noel's notes in an
effort to alert Ed to the possible (probable?) issues with this file. Let's
just hope he is able to 'bottom' it with your help and comes back with a
positive follow-up.

I would like to see Ed get things cleaned up.

Google points that file to some Fujitsu software.

Are you running any?

If true, uninstall it and reinstall.

Mart, Dave, oops, Bart. Thank you very much for your feedback.
Oops you mentioned about Fujitsu, actually I am using a Fujitsu notebook
which obviously comes with alot of its own software, so not sure what to do
with this one. My Norton A/V has not picked up anything. Anyway I plan to
follow Dave's Sysclean advice, wait a couple days, then follow Mart/Noel's
Stinger/CWShredder advice. Do you think thats the right way to go? Thank
you all for the help. Ed

Please submit "BTNHND.EXE" file is to Virus Total --
http://www.virustotal.com/flash/index_en.html
The submission will then be tested against i8 different AV vendor's scanners.

Another way to submit is to send the suspect file to the following email address
scan<at>virustotal.com
{ replace <at> with @ } with only the word SCAN as the subject.

Please post back the EXACT results. Then we'll know if is a Fujitsu utility or an infector.

Agreed!!

In the meantime, Ed, what are the 'Properties' of your BTNHND.EXE file?
Does it mention Fujitsu, or are there any indications of its 'pedigree'?

For info, I have been using this Fujitsu Lifebook for about 3 years, but this
problem only started occuring about a month ago. When I search for files and
folders, I get:
4 files (BtnHnd,BtnHnd.dll, BtnHnd.sys, BtnHnd.vxd) in folder C:\Program
Files\Fujitsu\BtnHnd.
1 file (BTNHND.LGC) in folder C:\WINDOWS\APPLOG.
There is no .exe file. So which one should I try to submit.
Thanks Ed

I think this is legitimate and just having a problem. Maybe a required DLL is the wrong
version.

You may have to reinstall the product or to stop using the product (remove it) to correct
the problem.

I would agree with Dave. Odd though, that there appears to be no BtnHnd.exe
and do wonder if all View File options are set properly in Windows
Explorer - perhaps the .exe suffix is not visible for the BtnHnd file -
particularly when the error report mentions the .exe extension. I would also
suggest that an 'uninstall' (remove), re-boot then 're-install' may be a
better route than a simple 're-install' i.e. over-install.

"Important: Some malware can camouflage themselves as BtnHnd.exe,
particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32
folder. Thus check the BtnHnd.exe process on your pc whether it is pest. We
recommend Security Task Manager for verifying your computer's security. "
http://www.file.net/process/btnhnd.exe.html

Google searches for variations of "btnhnd" are not very useful. The file is
known to be associated with the Fujitsu Lifebook, , but little has been
published about it.
I think ed needs to research the details of his Fujitsu Lifebook, for which
there are many models, and explore this issue, including speaking to Fujitsu
support.

Ruling out a virus infection of the file/s is critical. The absence of an
..exe file may mean that it had already been removed by the AV tool. The
..sys, .dll, and .vxd could still be vectors. Hopefully, the file with no
extension is the BtnHnd folder, not a file.
I suspect that only Fujitsu will be able to resolve this problem.
