whenever i open an exe program or file i get an error message stating the app or dll is not a valid image please check this against your installation diskette. then i click ok and the exe runs. this happens with everytime i run an exe. i have run norton, spysweeper, avira, defender, super antispyware, malwarebytes, spybot, adaware, mcafee, hijackthis, and avg. nothing seems to affect this trojan. If anyone knows how to remove it i would greatly appreciate if you could tell me how, thanks.

If anyone knows how to remove it i would greatly appreciate if you could tell me how, thanks. I have run sfc /scannow, chkdsk /f/r, repair from xp cd, so I am sure its not OS corruption but some trojan or virus that affects my exe files. I don't see anything in taskmaster processes. If anyone has encountered this condition and knows how to resolve it please let me know, thanks.

If none of those tools work, submit a HJT log



Please read the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". If you cannot complete a step, then skip it and continue with the next. In Step 6 there are instructions for downloading and running DDS which will create a Pseudo HJT Report as part of its log.

When you have done that, post your log in the HijackThis Logs and Malware Removal forum, NOT here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer. If you post your log back in this thread, the response from the HJT Team will be delayed because your post will have to be moved. This means it will fall in line behind any others posted that same day.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix. After doing this, we would appreciate if you post a link to your log back here so we know that your getting help from the HJT Team.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT "bump" your post or make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply. A team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.
