HI,

A while ago my computer started playing up... It lost the active desktop and dispalyed a biohazard sign saying i needed spyware removal software (obviously a ruse by whoever had just put this bit of spyware on my computer!)...

I downloaded Spybot search and destroy. This seemed to solve the problem - initially. However later when using firefox, firefox would just shutdown for no reason ( and still does sometimes), and Internet explorer would just popup with adverts for poker and other such nonsense.... This still happens even if iI havent used IE!

I used spybot search and destroy again (and regularly use it and immunize my self).

I still get the advert popups (it normally says - ads by targeted banner)!

I can't get rid of them, and i've noticed that my computer is rather slow... It takes ages to open windows documents etc...

Is there anyone there who can help me??

Thanks!

Krondaj.

It sounds like there are still a few trojans on your system. Download and Install Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware (free) Malwarebyte Anti-Malware update, and run. This should find a few files that Spybot didn't find. Hope this helps.

I've done that... it found 20 things! Thanks for your help

I have them quarantined... however, when my computer starts it says it can't run
C:\WINDOWS\system32\rddvomhebiepjjsue.dll

Malwarebytes says this is Adware.BHO

How can I stop my computer from telling me it can't run it?

Thanks!!

It's not unusual to receive such an error after using tools to remove malware infection.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
  • Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
  • Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.
I recommend you rescan again with MBAM (Quick Scan) in normal mode and check all items found for removal. Don't forgot to reboot afterwards. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. When done, click the Logs tab and copy/paste the contents of the new report in your next reply.

Also let me know how your computer is running and if there are any more reports/signs of infection.
