I recently had an trojan horse I removed with AVG Free and MalwareBytes, everything seems to be clear and so forth however there is a curious .dll that is hanging around. It is located in C:\Windows. When I run msconfig and look at the startup Tab it is listed on the startup menu even after I disable it, the next boot it just loads itself up again and the command tab there reads as such: Quote " rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\ihoqicoxicak.dll",Startup " End quote

I experimented with it by removing the extension on the file and when windows loads up it brings us a dialog box that says "ihoqicoxicak.dll is missing".

I looked around some and was not able to find any information about this file, good or bad. Any input is much appreciated!

Thank you.

Thanks for changing the forum, this should be better to find out what this file is. I've got some screen shots to show as well.
