2 rundll32.exe in task manager

Hi all

It is not easy to explain such a complicated matter with my limited English so I decided to state all the facts in time sequence to make it understandable:

First I have to briefly talk about my computer to make things clear. I am currently using a laptop computer with Window XP Home Edition. I have Avast (antivirus) and Malwarebytres (antimalware) installed on my computer.

Back in 28 April 2010, when I was browsing on the internet, my computer has been taken over by a malware claimed to antimalware software. My Avast antivirus has been automatically turned off and I couldn't even access to the internet. I opened up task manager, managed to recognise the malware that was running and ended it. I then went to system recovery and I was able to access to the internet again. I searched for a solution of the malware, followed the instructions and managed to solve the matter (at least I thought so).



A few weeks ago, my laptop computer started to make some strange noise. It sounds kind of like the noise when I have just put a CD in my computer and waiting (but not as loud). I have tried to find out what went wrong, failed and decided to live with it. Later on, I have found out that something is running on my computer and used up a lot of my CPU everytime when I left my computer. When I touch my computer my CPU returned to normal (went down) immediately. It appeared something suspicious is running so I took the next step.

I opened up task manager and waited to see what happened. I then found out when I left my computer on without using it, there will be 2 rundll32.exe running on my computer. 1 rundll32.exe uses up most of my CPU and another appears normal. Everytime when I touch my mouse, 1 rundll32.exe (the one uses most CPU) disappeared immediately and only 1 rundll32.exe remains on my task manager.



I did a research on the internet and some suggest that any rundll32.exe not located in system32 folder could be a malware. I then searched on my computer and found 1 rundll32.exe (.exe file appeared as a page icon) located in system32, 1 rundll32.exe (.exe file appeared as a .exe icon) located in MS Office folder and many rundll32.exe-XXXXX.pf (pf files) located in C:\Windows\Prefetch. Later on I deleted the one located in the MS Office folder.

I suspect the virus/malware still remains in my computer so I went to system recovery. When I opened my system recovery, I found out that for some reasons there are no points available for recover!

I suspect the rundll32.exe located in system 32 was modified by virus/malware because (1) I can still see 2 rundll32.exe running in my task manager if I leave my computer now (2) the rundll32.exe (in system32) turned into a page icon. I goolged on the internet again. Some people suggest it's normal to have rundll32.exe appeared as a page icon while other suggest that it's a sign of file corrupted/modified or virus infected. I don't know which side I should trust so I took the next step.



I scanned the rundll32.exe file with Avast and Malwarebytes and nothing came up. I have uploaded my rundll32.exe to www.virustotal.com and nothing came up again. However, when the results came up on www.virustotal.com, the file name appeared as "gth83325.exe" instead of "rundll32.exe".

So far nothing serious has happened since I removed the malware in step 1. However, the problem of 2 rundll32.exe running on my computer remains and my rundll32.exe still appears as a page icon (not an .exe icon). I suspect my computer was infected and I don't know what to do. I have included the result of hijackthis just in case. Please advise me on what to do. Should I format my computer? Thank you in advance.
