Hi there,

My antivirus is updated and after I scan no virus was found. This Error Goblin tells me that I might I have a virus. Does anyone have any idea about this Error Code: 0xe2 ? What could cause this error and why my antivirus didn’t find any virus ?

Thank you !

Error Goblin is a now defunct custom search engine for looking up Windows error codes. One feature of Error Goblin was to display a "Error of the day", in this case it is 0xe2. The error code 0xe2 actually means a manually created Blue Screen of Death and has nothing to do with a virus. What happened was that the Goblin Error service was hacked and its error descriptions replaced with viruses. You are being warned that the server can't display the description because it contains a virus.

Uninstall any Goblin Error programs you might have on your computer as they no longer work, except the offline version.

The “Error Goblin” application was designed to be a small tool that allows you to look up or search any Microsoft Windows or OS X error codes to find out their actually meaning. The tool will also allow you to search for error codes even when your internet connection is down.

In your case, when you used Error Goblin to search for error codes specifically error code “0xe2,” the program only displayed the meaning of the error code you searched. Error code “0xe2” literally means that the file contains a virus and cannot be opened. The message points to the error code you searched and not to your computer.

But if you want to make sure that your machine is clean, download Sophos Virus Removal Tool. It is a tool designed for removing viruses and other malware. You can use it even if you have an existing antivirus. Sophos Virus Removal Tool works alongside any antivirus program you may have.
