I found pcload.dll and frmwrk32.dll in my system32 folder. I deleted those, but the problem keeps coming back. I was browsing this site for information and these two threads described my problem almost exactly:
I get messages at the top of my browser window saying things like "Too many errors and faults WERE found in your system. Possibly that IT WAS THE RESULT of virus attack.YOU MUST scan your system." Sometimes the whole browser page goes blank and shows the text, "ERROR! Connection was RESET by remote server.
This can be a reason for system faults, errors or critical data corruption. To prevent your critical data loss please do the full system scaning!"
A new message:
"Page cannot be displayed
* No connection with Internet.
* Some problems with server.
* Your computer is being attacked by a virus.
Please scan your system:
Conection problems diagnostics."
Problem is, I can't get ComboFix or Malwarebytes to run at all. I get lots of error messages saying "Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item." (I managed to at least install the Malwarebytes program but it won't open or run correctly)
I'm on an administrator account, running Windows XP and Firefox if that helps at all. Please help me!
Also, I read a thread about "mscvhost.exe" or something like that. It looks familiar; I think it's been running in my task manager. Is it something to be worried about?
