There's one registry entry that keeps repopulating even when removed. I don't/didn't see any suspicious processes running except for rundll32.exe which I killed. But, the

"SOFTWARE/MICROSOFT/WINDOWS/CURRENTVERSION/RUN" keeps on repopulating with the following entry:

likagulina : rundll32.exe "c:\windows\system32\narudoku.dll", s

There's no such file named narudoku.dll. But, I don't know how and where this registry repopulation is coming from.
I've already scanned the system with Spybot and Malwarebytes Anti-malware. Both removed a bunch but I can't figure
out where this is coming from.

I've scanned with Vundofix as well and it finds nothing.

Google search turns up 0 results on either of those search terms!

This is my log ... The narudoku.dll file was originally deleted my MBAM but the system still kept looking for it at the RUN in the registry. Deleted the RUN -- it would keep readding itself after rebooting or within 5 minutes.

The "No Action Taken" response in your log generally means you did not click the Remove All button. You should rescan and do so. Then see what the log shows.

RunDLL32.exe is a legit Windows file that loads .dll files which too can be legit or malware related. The Cannot find or error loading error message usually occurs when the associated .dll has been removed. The file may have been removed during an anti-virus scan, the uninstall of a program or use of a specialized fix tool. However, an associated registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up.

If the file was removed but not the entry, Windows will display an error message indicating that the file was not found or there was an error loading. You need to remove this orphaned registry entry so Windows stops searching for the program when it loads.

To resolve this download and run Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if your 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 with the error message.
Right-click on the file and choose delete.
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

THANKS to quietman7 for this fix!!
