You should delete seknawo.dll.

Please update Spybot S&D and Malwarebytes then run a full scan from safe mode. What anti virus program are you using?

thewhole9,

I have to ask, have you been trained in the use of HJT?
If not, it isn't a good idea for you to muck about with it on your own.
If you don't know what you are doing, you can really mess up your system.

The best thing you can do is to submit the log for review by a member of the HJT team. These team members have undergone rigorous training in the use of HJT and they know what to look for and can advise you on cleaning your system.

Please read THIS TOPIC before posting your log. Follow the steps and then post the log in HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal

While you only have a snippet from the log, I think it falls under this

from HERE

Were we to permit some members to reply to HijackThis logs or give advice, then we would have to allow other members to do the same. Not knowing the background or training of such posters, we could not vouch for the accuracy or safety of the instructions provided. Thus, only trained members of the HJT Team, HJT Senior Classmen, Moderators or Administrators are allowed to help people with logs.


I also notice that you have an open topic HERE in Am I Infected? Are you using HJT to help you with that issue?
If you are, you have a choice. Post your log in the correct forum and ask that the topic in Am I Infected by closed.
OR you can wait for a response to your AII post. Someone will guide you through the clean up process, and if a HJT log is needed, they will tell you to post one.

If you choose to post a HJT log, please go to Tidiness forum here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/137145/bleeping-computer-tidiness/

Post the link to your AII topic and request that it be closed.

HijackThis will only fix what you ask it to fix by checking the box next to the entry. The Info on selected items button tells you what action HijackThis will perform if you choose to fix that particular entry.

O20 - AppInit_DLLs: (Action taken for AppInit_DLLs: Registry value is cleared by not deleted.)
O20 - Winlogon Notify: (Action taken for Winlogon Notify: Registry key is deleted)

And just because you "fixed" something with HijackThis, that does not mean you have a clean system. There are specific files and folders which must be deleted afterwards. HijackThis does not delete them. Futher, removing entries in HijackThis before the problem is properly identified can make the malware undetectable to other detection and removal tools.

Since HijackThis is a powerful tool that requires advanced knowledge about the Operating System and can cause system damage if used incorrectly, only designated trained experts are allowed to help people with using HijackThis. If you do not have advanced knowledge about computers or training in the use of this tool, you should NOT fix anything using HijackThis without consulting a expert as to what to fix.

Please follow the instructions by Queen-Evie.
