Pretty much any time I try to open a program or start the computer, I'm getting this message below.

XXXX - Bad Image

The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\pomijowu.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check the against your installation diskette.

I am also having an host of other problems as well that might be related. I currently have the Virtumonde BY and K and Darksma viruses. I however didn't start getting this message til after i turned off the computer while it was freezing up. i've done searches for this file online and have come up with nothing. i've also looked in the system32 folder and didn't see the file in there. any help would be sweet!

Hey i200proof

With this sort of problem I suggest you ask in the Am I Infected forum.
Alternatively you can go to the HijackThis forum, where our trained HijackThis Team will be able to diagnose and fix this problem (just make sure you look at this post first).

Hope all goes well

This stuff all points to an infection - so I'm going to move this over to the Am I Infected forum.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
