ceres.dll file purpose and description:
This file is appearing with regularity as an adware and spyware related module. This dll program is from "Ceres Abetterinternet", and this file is a browser helper object that runs whenever you start your browsing. (This is also related to the buddy.exe spyware or adware program). If this were on my pc, I would immediately remove this from my BHO list, otherwise it will continually run everytime you open your browser. (See the details below for the actual location of this file.)
Actual file or task name: (Note that you can view the entire list here)
This is known dll adware program.
Where is the file or folder located on my computer?
This file will be found at: C:\windows\ceres.dll
Be aware that many tasks will be similiar names to existing tasks or processes.
You can always view the running tasks on your computer by pressing ctrl-alt-del to view the windows
"task manager", and then view the "processes" tab. This will show you all tasks running or currently active
on your PC. Although this shows you all running tasks, it does not show dll file thats are loaded, as they
get loaded as part of other processes. Many spyware writers attempt to hide their files
on your computer, for example, ceres.dll may be intentionally misspelled to look like a similiar task, or spyware may be named very
similiar to a Windows system task. The reason they do this is so you cannot easily recognize the name in your tasklist
as I have mentioned above. Make sure always check the location of the file if you are concerned.
You can always find the location of ceres.dll on your computer by using your Windows search options, but
I will also try to list the file location of every file described on this website, so you can verify the correct location. You can view the entire tasklist directory with the link below.
