Hi! I am having that search engine issue where it redirects you to a different website when you search for something on google, yahoo, etc. I had AVG, and Malwarebites come back with no results. It was suggested that I install ComboFix. The program didnt finish installing, it said "please write this file down on paper as we are disabling it and may need it later" and then I started getting hundreds of errors saying that the file it disabled is needed for pretty much every application on my computer.

I looked up the file, C:/Windows/system32/msqhdhx.dll and it is apparently a VIR file, which I understand to be a virus file.

At this point I'll take the google virus if I can make this other issue go away. I get a pop up saying I need "msqhdhx.dll" for anything I open. The program will eventually open after clicking OK on the warning box for five or six rounds.

HELP, thanks!

I am sorry for the delay in posting to you. We have a large community, with hundreds of topics being created every day.

Do you still need help with your problem?

- If not, please tell me also.

- If so, please tell me what problems you have exactly at the moment.


I see you have used ComboFix before you came to us. I want to inform you that the execution of ComboFix, without supervision from a trained helper, can have very harmful effects on your computer.
ComboFix is a powerful tool, that can, without supervision from one of us, make your system (partly) corrupt. So I advise you to don't use this tool, and our other tools, in the future anymore without supervision.
