When I turn on my computer, I get an error message: "The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\lyeprr.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette." The title of the image varies, but the last part of it is always ".exe - Bad Image"

I get this message twice before Windows actually starts (while the screen is still black), and again a few times before my desktop shows up. Before the start menu comes up, I get the message again. I have to click "OK" at least 10 times before I can start any programs. Also, whenever I click on a program to start it or a file to open it, the message comes up, and I have to click "OK" before the file/program opens. The message also randomly comes up every so often. As far as I can tell, it doesn't affect anything that I do on my computer; it's just annoying. But I have no idea if it's harming my computer or not.

I've seen other posts about "Bad Image," but I didn't want to follow the advice that was given for those because I thought maybe my computer's virus could be a bit different. I want to know if and when i should post a HiJackThis log. Also, I have never used HiJackThis, so I would appreciate a quick how-to for it, if I need it.

Where do I start? Do I need any more information?


Thanks in advance!

The process of cleaning your computer may require you to temporarily disable some security programs. If you are using SpyBot Search and Destroy, please refer to Note 2 at the bottom of this page.

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself.
  • Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.
Note:
-- If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.

Note 2:
-- MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes (like Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere with the fix or alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please disable such programs until disinfection is complete or permit them to allow the changes. To disable these programs, please view this topic: How To Temporarily Disable Your Anti-virus, Firewall And Anti-malware Programs

Hi, lately (after I did the Full Scan) I've been getting more pop-ups, ones that pretend to be My Computer Online Scan searching for viruses. Could this be because of the files I deleted with Malwarebytes? Thanks!

Now my AntiVir Guard keeps warning me about a virus almost every time i click on something. It says:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\ljJAQGaW.dll
Is the TR/Monderb.aifr Trojan


I tried deleting that file, but it says it's in use. Should I try deleting it n safe mode? I don't want to do anything that would make the situation worse. It's really bad right now, I can hardly get anything done. I'd really appreciate your help!
