My dad is having me fix his computer, but I'm having a couple problems that i have yet to be able to extinquish. I've ran the virtumundo removal tool, spybot, and the mcafee scan in dos. At each startup i recieve a message that says that the file rymkowfv.dll and rjsgvcri.dll are both missing, once deleted from msconfig they are automatically placed back on. Spybot is unable to fully remove any of the malware that it detects.
the problems that i've sifted through so far are
and the missing file thing. Shall i proceed with a hijack this log? These are the last things left i haven't been able to remove yet.
Thanks for your help,

Also please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install. Alternatively, you can update through MBAM's interface from a clean computer, copy the definitions (rules.ref) located in C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware from that system to a usb stick or CD and then copy it to the infected machine.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes.

You should run both scans again. Post their logs if they find anything other than cookies.

Update all of your programs especially Java, Adobe Flash, and Windows.

Suggestion---Use the Secunia online scanner to find which of your programs need updating. Takes seconds to use.

Post back after the scans and tell us how the computer is performing and further instructions.

Just did the scans and came out clean besides one cookie.
Any suggestions on this message saying that the two dll files are missing? they're listed in msconfig, but i unchecked them, but to no avail. I searched for a replacement for them, but can't find any information on them. They are

the command line in msconfig says
rundll32.exe "C:\windows\system32\rymkowfv.dll",b
Rundll32.exe "C:\windows\system32\rjsgvcri.dll",s

Thanks for your help

You can use autoruns to find the missing startup items and kill them. Those two items don't show up in a search so they are most likely leftovers from the malware you had.

Be sure to update your programs as the malware you had could have exploited one especially Java. After updating to go the Add/Remove program and remove ALL old Java programs.

You should also remove all restore points as some are infected. Wouldn't want to use System Restore and reinfect your computer. Below are links to tutorials for doing that for XP and Vista.

Use Ccleaner to remove temporary files, logs, cookies, etc. During install it will offer the Yahoo Toolbar. UNcheck if not wanted. http://www.ccleaner.com/
