Just today while I was on the internet, my computer was infected with a trojan virus. Pop-ups for anti-virus software kept showing up when I had Firefox open. I had run superantispyware and did a complete scan and restarted my computer after it had removed the virus and all registry items on my computer.

The only problem is, after I restarted my computer, I had three windows show up.

One of them looked like this:

The three windows had a different .dll file. It was bibegipe.dll, pupamawe.dll, and zolekohi.dll. I went on Firefox shortly and there were no pop-ups and my system was running just fine. I ran a second scan just in case and it had found malware so I restarted the system again. The three windows showed up again. My system is running just fine, it's just that these windows showing up are such a nuisance! They show up when I start up the system and log into my computer, but once I close them they don't show up anymore. As I'm typing this and browsing the internet for a possible solution, there are no pop-ups and my system is running smoothly. I would like to say that my system is free of the virus, but I don't want to think so. I want to be sure. Is there a solution or am I just going to have to get used to those windows showing up each time I start up my computer? And are these RUNDLL windows showing up causing any harm at all? My OS is Windows XP and it's updated to service pack 2. Just added that bit just in case you might need it.

Update: I just ran another scan and this showed up on one of the threats: Adware.Vundo Variant. I'm currently looking up ways to get rid of it, but am not sure how because I don't want to mess up and do something wrong to my computer.

Much help would be appreciated, thanks! :thumbsup:

Yes, they are Vundo infections. The file is gone but the registry pointing to it is not so you get that error. Let's see if MBAM can remove it. If not, we will manually remove it :thumbsup:

Download and run MalwareBytes Anti-Malware(Full Scan)

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop if you lost your copy and need to install it, otherwise skip the installation step and continue with the Full Scan.
alternate download link 1
alternate download link 2
  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on Download_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 Full 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 and you may be prompted to restart your computer. (see Note below)
  • 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 will be presented with 1 of 2 prompts. Click OK to either and let MBAM proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.
