I have a Vundo infection so I tried to use combofix. Everything seem to be correct but I am not able to logon correctly another time to windows XP. Since this machine is from work, I am administrator with network profile password but don't have the password for the computer standing alone (no network) Now, when I try to log on there is a message that says that GINAG42B.dll is missing. I have remove the hard disk and look for it on windows/system32 and is already there. Since I don't have the local password I am not able to log into the computer to uninstall combofix. Don't know what to do, any help would be appreciated.
Thanks and regards

Hi NEWYNE, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

ComboFix is an extremely powerful tool which should only be used when instructed to do so by someone who has been properly trained. ComboFix is intended by its creator to be "used under the guidance and supervision of an expert", NOT for private use. Please read Combofix's Disclaimer. Using this tool incorrectly could lead to disastrous problems with your operating system such as preventing it from ever starting again.

I will see if I can get a moderator to move this topic to the Am I Infected forum where it will get the kind of attention it warrants.

If this is a work computer, have you contacted and advised your IT Dept? In most work environments, the IT staff have policies and procedures in place to deal with infections on their computers and may not approve of employees seeking help at an online forum.

Further, it is against the policy of BleepingComputer to provide information on methods to defeat existing security measures which includes resetting or bypassing the Administrator password. Though your question is most likely legitimate, there are others who may read this topic and use the information for less savory reasons. It is for that reason we do not provide this type of assistance.

Thanks for your understanding.
