windows xp home

there are a few(6) random letter dlls(pmnuoIx.dll) that are in my system32 folder in windows that i simply cannot delete. when deleted, they regenerate in a few minutes, or simply cannot be deleted because they are in use.

several days ago symantec antivirus began picking up trojan.vundo. i would clean it and reboot as told, then it would pop up again later that day. i checked my processes with task manager and noticed several rundll's were there. I ran spybot, symantec, and hijackthis(i'll post log if you need it). my internet seems sorta crippled by this thing as certain sites will work fine(reddit.com[not from cache i cleared that and tried]) but certain won't(google search! google comes up but searches simply load forever, bleepingcomp forums also load forever when the rundlls are up).

basically i ran the scans a lot, booted into safe mode, ran killbox, all trying to delete the random letter dlls that showed up in system32. i managed to kill a few of them and then immediately ended the rundll processes in taskmanager. this temporarily gave me access to the forums. i'll be checking the forum from now on from a different computer.

sorry if this isn't worded right, please respond and i can clarify anything or post a log.

thanks so much, anxious to hear back.
