I don't know where to post this question and request for help, so I'm taking a shot at it here. Something has infected my system and all of my spyware scanners and cleaners and also my anti-virus do not find this thing. I was using IE, but had to go to Firefox because I couldn't stop this thing, and now I fear Firefox has become infected as well because when I opened it today, this thing wouldn't let me connect unless I allowed it. It also seems that something is opening IE in the background and trying to connect to these sites (I know this because Sygate tells me so):


The problem seems to be coming from wmplayer.exe and wmplayerndw30103lib.dll because this is shown in the msg from sygate when this happens. I've tried to delete the .dll, I've several times taken this .dll out of the start/run part of the registry and each time I remove it Ad-Aware tells me it's trying to write to it again, and it happens so much that it literally freezes up my PC so I have to allow it in order to even open a window of any sort.

I'm thinking that this .dll is exploiting wmplayer.exe, but I can't find what created the .dll, and I can't get rid of the .dll because it keeps coming back. I'm stuck here, I can't get rid of this, and I don't know for sure if this .dll is a ligit file or not.

I suggest you post a HijackThis log for examination.

Read the pinned post in the HijackThis forum, here
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully.

Then, run a log, and post it in the HJT forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
