I'm new to this forum,Well at least as a registered member that is.
So I would just like to say HI to every1! And hopefully I can finally get some help with my problem(s) and perhaps eventually help other's also.
First I would just like to thank some of you that has helped some of us that has gotten the 2011 virus!!
I recently had the 2011 anti virus problem like so many others have obviously had. The only thing I could think of to do at the time was to do a system restore to a previous date. That seemed to have worked but I was also paranoid of it popping back up so I came on here and followed simple instructions that were previously given out to some1 else about how to get rid of this problem. And that was to get the rKill download and then go get MalwareBytes. Well that obviously worked because ever since I got malwarebytes it seemed to have gotten rid of the problem.


And now back to the original reason why I'm posting.
When ever I go to open up anything I get this message popping up

C:\WINDOWS\system32\NVDESK32.DLL is not a valid Windows image
.

I have everything from AVG,Avast,spybot search and destroy,malwarebytes and just recently came across Eusing free registry cleaner.

Yes, I know I probably only need like 2 of those. Lol. But this problem simply will not go away. I have ran all these in safe mode also and yet I still have the same results.
I tried doing another system restore but I can NOT. Not even in safe mode.
So .. I'm begging some1 to PLEEEAAASSEEE Help me with this problem. Lol.

I do not have hijack this or else I would simply post the log files.

The reason I was in Safe mode earlier it was because I was running the anti virus ware programs .... As of right now I am in safe mode and that is because when I went to google chrome everything froze and I had to manual shut off. That happened twice,thinking it wouldn't do it again but it did.. So I'm in safe mode at the moment... and right now I just realized that I have no sound.. Greeat more crap.

Okay so I restarted the computer. I am now using IE and as soon as I got on I got a "Microsoft Error Report" Something to do with the NET Framework. I sent the report to microsoft like it asked.

I'm starting to think that the problem of this SYSTEM32\NVDESK32.DLL is not a valid windows image ... Has obviously has something to do with perhaps the start up programs? I mean as soon as I turn the computer on its like BOOM BOOM BOOM pop ups of this..

Can you take any screenshots of the window if possible or kill it via task manager via ctrl+alt+del?

Nope. Don't see anything in the task manager. Don't see anything in add/remove programs either. Should I go and get Hijackthis so it'll be easier to see whats going on? And also, I have an windows update but it never installs, so I'm assuming this is part of the problem ......... (?)
