I have an unfamiliar .dll file that is in the msconfig startup items it's (asofecuficawaju), never seen it before and when I turn it off and reboot Win XP it just turns itself on again. It's in the registry under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Current Version\Run name:Lgeniqadunuj; Type:REG_SZ; Data:rundll32.exe "C:\Windows\asofecuficawaju.dll", Startup. Do you have any idea what this is and will it hurt if I get rid of it, is it a possible virus. I've searched the web and have found nothing about it. Your help would be appreciated...Thanks

definitely run a full virus scan and malwarebytes scan before attempting manual removal

Thanks caperdog, virus scan didn't pick it up but Malwarebytes Anti-Malware found it as a Trojan.Hiloti and took care of it and 5 others, appreciate the help. :thumbsup:
