Hi everybody. I'm new and this is my first post. I came across this .dll file in my system config utility under the start up tab. If I uncheck the box it will be rechecked after a restart.

I don't see it in my processes or in any of my services. I'm not sure what it's for or what it does. Has anybody seen this file before? A search on Google returned ZERO results.

Thanks, Dave

Msconfig was designed to be a diagnostic utility. It should not be used to make permanent changes to startup processes. Instead you should use a 3rd party app designed for the purpose. One such app is Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel (http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml). There are other, more comprehensive apps - but this one is simple and straightforward.

As for that particular file, I'm not familiar with it. Why not run full system scans with both your AV and with MalwareBytes just to be safe.

Hey Allan Thanks for the quick reply. I checked the file against Norton ( which I don't trust 100% ) and it came back clean. I'm running MalwareBytes now but their full scan takes forever. Although I'm pretty sure I've checked it in the past. I don't think it's malicious but all of a sudden I noticed it in my startup programs.
I was just curious if anybody had ever heard of it before. It's located in C:\WINDOWS folder.

It's certainly not a Windows file. And you know what? Just check the file with MalwareBytes (or just a "quick scan"). Sorry - I really didn't mean to say a full system scan.

The file properties point to a website called Highpoint Technologies. http://www.highpoint-tech.com/USA_new/main.htm They appear to make RAID controllers. I have been researching RAID setups for a new computer I want to build --But I've never seen or heard of this website or have I installed anything from them.

Okay. Just uncheck it in Startup Control Panel and let's see if it stays unchecked.

The name ejejoxumuge.dll is very suspicious and, most likely, a random generated name by spy/malware that infested your system.

Hello,

It's important to know the full file path; location of a file can help identify whether it's malicious or not.

Also, when in question about a file, you can have it scanned at Jotti and VirusTotal

Both these will scan the file with multiple scanners. If either site says the file has been scanned before, have them scan yours anyway.
