Hi there -
My son apparently got some kind of virus/malware/trojan thing today - he used several things to try and remove it - and we believe that he did remove - but now at start up I am recieving to error messages:

C\Windows\system32\msqdj.exe application can not be found

C\Windows\system32\mszzp.exe application can not be found

Also - when I try to run any exe file application nothing is recognized. It states I need to pick a program to run this type of file on???

I am not very computer literate but I have a basic understanding of how the system works - any help would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you -

Don't be concerned about those messages. They are very common when malware has been removed. Those messages will be taken care of once your topic here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/240794/trojan-spmlx/ is picked up.

Because you have a topic in the HiJack This forum, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a HJT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show in the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.

From this point on the HJT Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are EXTREMELY 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 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. Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response but your log will be reviewed and answered as soon as possible

To avoid confusion, I am closing this topic. Good luck with your log.
