I think I may have a couple overlapping issues.
First is constant Bad Image errors that happen whenever something is accessed.
eg"Outlook.exe - Bad Image The application DLL C:/Windows/system32/yanufan.dll is not a valid windows image. Pleas e check this against your installation diskette"
(note: Outlook.exe can be replaced with whatever is being accessed.)
I've already run my antivirus (Telus Security Software previously Freedom) I've also run the Trend Micro online scan, both of these done repeatedly. I've run Ad-Aware repeatedly and an earlier copy of Spyware Doctor. I have tried to do a systems restore to 3 different dates more than 2 weeks ago and have failed each time. After looking into it a bit on some other forums, it seems it might be an after effect of a virus my software detected and deleted last week sometime. I've downloaded and run HijackThis, but have no clue as to what I'm looking at in the log. I'll check the other recommended scans, but wanted to get this down now.
Secondly, when browing using IE, I periodically have another webpage open in a new window, the connection does not complete and the web page always has one of 2 precursors. Again, this may be a left over effect of something else, but as
I can't seem to find it with any automatic detection and removal tools I've tried, I figured I'd bring that up here too.
Whoops, I guess i posted to the wrong spot and am reposting to the malware sub forum.
