I've been having issues with a 'Bad image' popping up when I click on anything with the following message.
The application or DLL\globalroot\systemroot\system32\hjgruitvveobon.dll is not a valid window image. Please check this against your installation diskette.
It shows up on start up with my computer, and anytime I click on anything. Like Google Chrome , IE, Photoshop, ect. I tried to do the DDS tool before coming here so I would have that information for you, who look at this, but it would start up and then freeze after about forty minutes or so.
So I am trying to give as much information as I can here.
Other then that message popping up, it has slowed my computer, opened paths for more annoying viruses to come through and while it shows up in my virus scan's, it say's it can not be removed.
I am operating off of windows XP and am completely lost and in need of help.
I was told this is a rootkit? But I have no idea what this is, how to remove it, or what steps to take, so I was referred here. I'm hopping that even without the DDS, I can be helped out.
