I recently caught the google redirecting virus so I cleaned it up with Malwarebytes
after the scan, it told me to reboot the computer so that is could finish the job
but after the malwarbytes finished I started getting numerous pop ups saying the same thing

"the application or DLL globalroot/systemroot/system32/skynetqgrxnspi.dll is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your instillation diskette. "

I think I have the installation diskette, so should I just load it in?


and also, my computer keeps on restarting for no reason.... :/

Typically when you get a virus it makes an entry in your registry instructing your computer to run the virus every time you start. Malwarebytes found the virus and deleted it, but this entry is still in your registry, which is why you are getting the error message. Using the AutoRuns utility you should be able to locate this entry and delete it.

When you run AutoRuns look in the right-hand column named "Image Path" and check for any entries that say "File not found". If you find any of these, right-click on them and select Delete. Then close AutoRuns and reboot your computer.

ok, and this applies to all the things that say path not found?
there's an entry that just says 0

I won't damage anything right?

I'm not sure about the entry that just says 0, so leave that one alone for now.

Only delete the ones that say "file not found" or "path not found" and you'll be okay.

No.

Run this scan instead:

Please download RootRepeal Rootkit Detector and save it to your Desktop.

* Close all programs and temporarily disable your anti-virus, Firewall and any anti-malware real-time protection before performing a scan.
* Click this link to see a list of such programs and how to disable them.
* Create a new folder on your hard drive called RootRepeal (C:\RootRepeal) and extract (unzip) RootRepeal.zip. (click here if you're not sure how to do this. Vista users refer to this link.)
* Open the folder and double-click on RootRepeal.exe to launch it. If using Vista, right-click and Run as Administrator...
* Click on the Files tab, then click the Scan button.
* In the Select Drives, dialog Please select drives to scan: select all drives showing, then click OK.
* When the scan has completed, a list of files will be generated in the RootRepeal window.
* Click on the Save Report button and save it as rootrepeal.txt to your desktop or the same location where you ran the tool from.
* Open rootrepeal.txt in Notepad and copy/paste its contents in your next reply.
* Exit RootRepeal and be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.

Note: If RootRepeal cannot complete a scan and results in a crash report, try repeating the scan in "Safe Mode".
