Hello everyone, how are you all doing this morning?

I am in need of some help with these 2 items on my computer and also a 3rd one that I can't remember what it is right now until I restart my pc again.

1. mightymagoo.exe (just discovered this one this morning when I woke up and got online. Hubby was online all night long and using the pc so I do not know what he has done to create this problem.)

2. NView.dll (happens to load this error every single time I start up the pc. Not sure why the dynamic link library is running amok on me at all. What can be done to correct this mess so that I do not have any more problems with it showing up on my desktop any more and to also keep from making that loud noise upon startup?)

EDIT: Moved to AII ~ Hamluis.

Good morning :thumbsup:.

Can you post the exact wording of each error message, please?

Citing files is not really very useful.

When do these error messages appear...exactly what are you doing when they appear?

<<...and to also keep from making that loud noise upon startup?)>>

I have no idea what you are referring to. We can neither see nor hear your system.

System manufacturer and model?

Louis

hello Louis, Sorry,

The problem with the nview.dll reads... error loading nview.dll and cannot load. This one only pops up with a restart of the computer, not at any time after that. The sound of the error popping up is one that if you hit a key on the keyboard it makes a loud noise almost deaf defying then goes off. Not any more than that.

the mightymagoo.exe file that was so called trying to be downloaded to my pc last night sometime. Not sure when or how or why it happened but it did. All that I know about that file there was that my husband was on the pc last night all night long playing simslots.com and then I awakened to try and play my pogo.com this morning and I couldn't until I got rid of that download from my pc. I have never seen it before and do not know what it is or what it pertains too. but it did say that it was some sort of a hidden root kit? what does that mean? and why does it state that it is harmful to download if it is a rootkit?

Hi whitefeather0869, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

I believe that the mightymagoo is a rootkit. I found a reference to this where one of the members of our malware removal team is working with a member that has the same thing. I'm waiting for a confirmation on this.

If it does turn out to be a rootkit one of the moderators will move this topic to the Am I Infected forum where it can be addressed by members that are properly trained for this.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I received word that this isn't a rootkit. This is what was explained to me...

It looks like a game or a gaming environement. It seems to belong to this games site: mightymagoo.com They offer removal instructions here: hxxp://mightymagoo.com/deactivate/ However the site is rated badly on a couple of sites (even though others, like norton safeweb say its clean).

It should be removable through add/remove if the person doesn't know what it is and doesn't use it. It's not a rootkit.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Download the following: Friver Sweeper. Install it, and remove the nVidia Display Drivers from your computer. After that reinstall a fresh copy from here: nVidia Video Card Site.

Perform the following tasks and post the logs of each if you can.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware

Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Download Link 1
Download Link 2
MBAM may "make changes to your registry" as part of its disinfection routine. If using other security programs that detect registry changes (ie Spybot's Teatimer), they may interfere or alert you. Temporarily disable such programs or permit them to allow the changes.

  • Make sure you are connected to the Internet.
  • Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.
    For instructions with screenshots, please refer to the How to use Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Guide.
  • When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.
  • When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
  • Then click Finish.
MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan.
  • If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue.
  • If you encounter any problems while downloading the definition updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.
On the Scanner tab:
  • Make sure the "Perform Full Scan" option is selected.
  • Then click on the Scan button.
  • If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.
  • The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.
  • When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".
  • Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.
Back at the main Scanner screen:
  • Click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.
  • Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.
  • The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.
  • Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply. Be sure to post the complete log to include the top portion which shows MBAM's database version and your operating system.
  • Exit MBAM when done.
Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you will be asked to reboot your computer so MBAM can proceed with the disinfection process. If asked to restart the computer, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware.


SUPERAntiSpyware:

Please download and scan with SUPERAntiSpyware Free

  • Double-click SUPERAntiSypware.exe and use the default settings for installation.
  • An icon will be created on your desktop. Double-click that icon to launch the program.
  • If it will not start, go to Start > All Prgrams > SUPERAntiSpyware and click on Alternate Start.
  • If asked to update the program definitions, click "Yes". If not, update the definitions before scanning by selecting "Check for Updates". (If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here. Double-click on the hyperlink for Download Installer and save SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to your desktop. Then double-click on SASDEFINITIONS.EXE to install the definitions.)
  • In the Main Menu, click the Preferences... button.
  • Click the "General and Startup" tab, and under Start-up Options, make sure "Start SUPERAntiSpyware when Windows starts" box is unchecked.
  • Click the "Scanning Control" tab, and under Scanner Options, make sure the following are checked (leave all others unchecked):
    • Close browsers before scanning.
    • Scan for tracking cookies.
    • Terminate memory threats before quarantining.
  • Click the "Close" button to leave the control center screen and exit the program.
  • Do not run a scan just yet.
Reboot your computer in "Safe Mode" using the F8 method. To do this, restart your computer and after hearing your computer beep once during startup (but before the Windows icon appears) press the F8 key repeatedly. A menu will appear with several options. Use the arrow keys to navigate and select the option to run Windows in "Safe Mode".

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:
  • Launch the program and back on the main screen, under "Scan for Harmful Software" click Scan your computer.
  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.
  • Click Close to exit the program.
If you have a problem downloading, installing or getting SAS to run, try downloading and using the SUPERAntiSpyware Portable Scanner instead. Save the randomly named file (i.e. SAS_1710895.COM) to a usb drive or CD and transfer to the infected computer. Then double-click on it to launch and scan.
