how can i tell what version that file is? the size of the vnchooks.dll file is 32.0KB and was modified 3/14/2001 12:09PM

mcafee reports the infected file as VNCHooks.dll and the Virus name as WinVNC.dll

i've uninstalled, and reinstalled but mcafee still picks it up as a virus. thanks...

What version of the vnchooks.dll do you have - and what is its size? Also,
did McAfee give the virus a name?

Virus scanners over the last few years have gotten very aggressive - they
tend to give false positives if there is any doubt.  That said, many viruses
will try to glom onto any library file they can, so it is possible that one
attached itself.
