Hey everybody.
I have a problem with some viruses that have appeared on my system.
Any help would be appreciated!

I noticed today while having a look through "Startup Control Panel" that I have two programs booting on startup both which I do not recognise and that are .dll files.
They are:
-rundll32.exe ''ljihee.dll'',s
-rundll32.exe ''geebaw.dll'',DllRegisterServer

I first searched both of these on Google but get absolutely no results which seemed very unusual to me...

Then I tried to untick them in Startup Control Panel.
They untick, but then immediately recreate themselves with a different nonsense file name (although the .dll name remains steady the whole time.)

I also checked the startup things on Spybot S&D.
They appear there too, and if I untick them they reappear once I change page in Spybot and then go back.

I also did the same thing in CCleaner startup tool.
And they reappear immediately upon changing the page.

Spybot, Ad-Aware and AVG do not pick up any errors in my system.

I have CCleaned my system and done a Disk and Registry Defrag with Auslogics programs too.

Revo Uninstaller isnt picking up anything unusal that has been installed.
Nor is the Windows Add/Remove.

I can't delete the files through Windows\System32 because they are .dll files.

I tried renaming them and while that works, they just recreate themselves upon restart.

The only thing they seem to be doing is causing some links in Google to divert to obviously fake pages and occasioanlly making Firefox crash.
But that's enough for me not to want them there.

Any ideas?

From what you describe, I believe you have a rootkit aboard which will require specialized tools to remove. Please follow the instructions in ==>This Guide<==.

Once the proper logs are created, then make a NEW TOPIC and post it ==>HERE<== Please a description of your computer issues and what you have done to resolve them.

If you can produce at least some of the logs, then please create the new topic and explain what happens when you try to create the log(s) that you couldn't get. If you cannot produce any of the logs, then still post the topic and explain that you followed the Prep. Guide, were unable to create the logs, and describe what happens when you try to create the logs.
