Hi all, i am new here and i have joined and posted here after lookingaround on the site and not finding a simular topic.

OK, so i am running XP (obviously) and a couple of onths ago i had a few trojans on my PC (i had neglected to upgrade software as i was busy with studies) which were found be my Antivirus and removed. anyway since their removal on start up i keep getting a message

"Error loading c:\windows\system32\Vufosesa.dll The specified module could not be found"

and

"Error loading c:\windows\system32\yiriyidi.dll The specified module could not be found"

it doesn'#t seem to cause any issues to my system, and i am guessing that the files that start on start up that run the trojans i renoved are the reason that these messages are appearing. anyway i am fed up of seeing them now, so i have been looking around to find out how. so far i have just found topics and software that say they will beable to get rid of the trojans but i have already got rid of them thus i am posting here.

can anyone help me?

also will be able to post any other information needed

thanks in advace

If these are startup pointers for malware items which have been removed...you can use AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx to look for such.

The startup items will be displayed on the Logon tab...the other tabs list all the other items which run at boot which are drivers, XP files, etc. and those tabs should be ignored in your search.

Startup items displayed on the Logon tab will include registry entries as well as file entries.

thanks Louis, I will try that in a moment. I have just been adviced by a friend to check a log using Hijackthis and then MSconfig to disable the possible offenders in question.

it seems to have worked in that i am not getting the error message anymore, although it hasn't get rid of the malware, just stopped it working.

hmmmmm

I thought that...you indicated that the malware has been removed.

Using msconfig to find startup items is somewhat inaccurate and using it to control/manage startup items is misuse of the tool. The tool is designed to be a troubleshooting utility for situations where users have problems booting.

Msconfig does not list all startup items, not including various registry items, AFAIK.

In any case, if you do have a current malware problem...you need to post (following admin procedures spelled out there) at BleepingComputer.com - Am I infected What do I do - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/, rather than the XP forum.
