I keep getting notices from McAfee that file sndmixex.dll (in Windows/System32) has been infected with GenericDownloader and cannot be cleaned.

I have run Spybot, Adaware, Stinger and this still pops up.

I've posted a Hijack Log in the Hijack Log forum.

Help would be appreciated. My computer is definitely not running up to speed.

Thanks!

Good think about posting the HijackThis log, someone should be with you in the next few days. You can read more about the file here:

What Anti-Virus software do you have on your computer (e.g. AVG, Norton, ot anti-spyware).

I don't really have antivirus, which is part of the problem. :thumbsup:

A friend recommended grisoft . . . what do you think?

Using an Anti Virus Software- It is very important that your computer has an anti-virus software running on your machine. This alone can save you a lot of trouble with malware in the future. See this link for a listing of some on line & their stand-alone anti virus programs:
Click here for more information on -> Computer Safety On line - Anti-Virus

I would recommend Grisoftsİ AVG or AVASTİ. As these are the more secure and better ones.

Update your Anti Virus Software - It is imperitive that you update your Anti virus software at least once a week (Even more if you wish). If you do not update your anti virus software then it will not be able to catch any of the new variants that may come out.
