Before I go through the whole business of posting a hijack log and all of that, I thought I might ask simply if anyone had encountered this dll before and if so, what you have done about it.
I have the freebie version of winpatrol running and it keeps telling me that something is attempting to change the startup configuration by adding this dll, which is a bho, as a plug in to IE6.
I don't even use IE6; I've been using Firefox as the default, but actually using Slimbrowser most often.
A viral scan by Trend Micro doesn't pick it up any viruses; I also tried Spybot and the freebie version of Ad aware, and nothing shows.
I can't remove it because Windows says some other app is using it.
I'm pretty sure it's malware, and I was curious who else may have tangled with it.

ssttu.dll appears to be associated with a Vundo infection.

See the self-help tutorial How To Remove Winfixer/Virtumonde/Msevents/Trojan.vundo.

If you are still having problems afterwards you may need to post a HijackThis log and get expert assistance. Instructions for posting a log are included in the tutorial.

SSTTU.DLL

Run Spybot, Ad-aware, and your antivirus in Safe Mode.
How to start Windows in Safe Mode

If that doesn't help, then post a HijackThis log for examination.

Read How to post a HijackThis Log.
Please read, and follow, all directions carefully!!!

Then, run a log, and post it in the HijackThis forum, at this link. Do not, fix anything, yet.
A member, of the HJT Team, will help you out.
It may take a while to get a response, because the HJT Team are very busy. Please, be patient, these people are volunteers. They will help you out, as soon as possible.

NOTE:
Once you have made the post, please, DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum, until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post, there will be 1 reply. The team member, glancing over the replies, might assume someone is already helping you out, and will not respond. So, just make your post, and let it sit there, until a team member responds. This way you will be taken care of, in the most timely manner.
