Hi,

I would appreciate some urgent help. Whenever my PC had adware or spyware on it, the red light beside the On button stays on for a few seconds and then blinks.

Sorry Im not very PC savvy and do not know the technical terms.

I have run Malware Bytes and it turns up nothing.


When I run Super Anti Spyware (free edition) I get a report that
says

Trojan.NewDotNet - 30 threats

Adware.TrackingCooking - 46 threats

So I go through the removal process and reboot. But the parasites never fully disappear

I used the 'File Assassin' from Malware Bytes and got rid of the NewDotNet file in my program files.
But now when I turn my computer on I get an error message saying that 'New Dot Net' cannot be run because the file was not found.

Ugh.... I really need some help here.

Also, how do I do a 'Hijack This' to show you what is going on with my PC??


Please help quick and thank you for your time. xoxox

Or maybe it would be better to go to the "Am I infected?" forum on bleepingcomputer.com at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/ to deal with malware instead of buying software.

Anyways, are you able to get into safe mode? If not, the only other way I can think of is by using a bootdisk or something.

Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.

Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.
