Hi there. My name is Douglas and I found the site on Google. I'm running WINDOWS XP Pro. This problem seems to be random.

About a week ago, I was mostly successful in ridding my PC of a trojan, which kept redirecting IE7 to some website about dirtbike racing. I also noticed that the rundll32.exe would show up at the same time in TaskManager. It still does, but at random times. I've scanned with MalwareBytes, eTrust Antivirus, and Spyware Terminator. Nothing has stopped this program from running. The file is located in the proper C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder, and it's size is consistent with the same files on other PCs in my house. I have the HiJack This log file. I hope this is the right one, as I've never done this before:

After posting, I went back to trying everything I could think of. I thought about how it showed up in a random kind of way. I started thinking of all the things that could call up the rundll32.exe program. Then I finally visited the C:\WINDOWS\Tasks folder - I knew I had never scheduled anything. Sure enough, there was a file. I can't remember what it was called, because I promptly deleted it, and my problem was solved.

:thumbsup:
