I get the following error message when I attempt to start WinAmp.exe (Version 5.551).
"The application or dll c:\WINDOWS\system32\MSWMDM.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette."
If I click OK, WinAmp starts and functions normal. I read about a possible back door trojan that may be causing this error message.
I ran Vundo, but nothing came back infected.
I am a complete novice, so I could use some help in determining the cause of the error as well as step by step instructions as to correcting the error or providing additional information. I'm not sure if this error is related to the computer freezing up and occasionally restarting. I'm almost to the point of re-installing Windows to increase the performance as the computer worked much better previously.
My computer is
AMD Athlon 64 Processor
2.19 GHz, 1.87 GB of RAM
Running Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 3
I've downloaded ComboFix but haven't run it since I don't know exactly what I'm doing at this point.
