Hello, Please bare with me as I am new to this asking for help stuff.

I have Norton Anti-virus on my computer & every once in a while (sometimes many minutes in a row) I get a pop-up from Norton telling me it found a virus & could not do anything with it. It says the infected file is "winmqx32.dll" I have tried searching ALL over for info on it with NO luck, tried the Symantec website with NO luck, tried searching here with no luck.
I am hoping someone might have some info to share, if I can delete it (I tried with no luck)
I have been waiting for it to pop-up again so I can share more info... but of course... it isn't.
It does say something like Download.Zolb Trojan.

I had also had a big fight with SpywareQuake which it seems I finally won with the help of people from this page.

Thanks for any help & if I get any more info I will let you know.

Just got this....
Scan type: Realtime Protection Scan
Event: Virus Found!
Virus name: Download.Trojan
File: C:\WINDOWS\system32\winmqx32.dll
Location: C:\WINDOWS\system32
Computer: Steve
User: Steve

Date found: Sun Mar 26 14:31:27 2006

Hi canadiansmitty!

This file is part of mediatickets spyware - the file is a random one with constants:

This file is notoriously hard to remove, and a special method must be used to do so. I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review.

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system

I've moved your HJT log into the HJT forums.

You can find it here.

Please be patient and wait for a response from a member of the HJT Team.
