This problem has actually been going on for a while now. About 2 and a half months ago, I was doing some manual virus removing and did a few things in the registry (which I'm pretty familiar with) and found this file C:\WINDOWS system32\noguhulu.dll to be a source for alot of my problems. I deleted it and any references to it in the registry, but now when my XP SP2 boots, every program that starts on boot-up gives the same error "Bad Image, The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\noguhulu.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette." This same error comes up every time I run a program, regardless of what program it is. (i.e... firefox.exe - Bad Image etc...)
I've run AVG Free 8.0 scans in safe mode, Malwarebytes and AdAware free all completely updated and nothing comes up. No Google searches come back with ANYTHING on this file name. I don't really want to reformat if possible so I thought I'd throw this one out there and see if anyone had come across this problem or even heard of the file.
Thanks for any feedback in advance!
