Hi there.
I have an older machine (Vaio about 6yrs old, WinMe) that I use to work from home. Last week I started getting constant pop-ups and have spent countless hours trying to combat them. I have followed the "what if I'm infected" advice from this site, and others. I have used AdAware and Spybot about a dozen times each (in and out of safe mode). I have used programs like CWshredder and Look2me just in case. Nothing seems to help.

There are two .dll files that always stick around, which would explain why evertime I use a anti-spyware/virus program malware is always present (?). These files are:

DMCPCSVC.DLL and a one that changes with every reboot (such as pgd.dll, labkpm9x.dll or vuhw9x.dll). I have tried to delete these in safe mode and used Process Explorer to see what .exe's were running and I still get the "program in use" message.

Many of the pop ups show this address for a split second before the window pops:


And of course I have put about 1000 different entries into my Black List on Avant Browser (I am really beginning to miss netscape).

Is there a way to rid my computer of these files, and if not, can they be rendered ineffective with a name change or something? What would you guys recommend?

The last resort is of course re-formatting the drives. I have a C and a D drive. Is it possible to do just the C and leave the D as is (I have a ton of work-related material, and music there)?

Help would be greatly appreciated.

Since it appears you may have several infections, its time to have a deeper look as to what's going on with your system by creating a hijackthis log. This will help to identify any malware files that may be responsible for your problems.

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". When you have done that, post a log in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis Forum, not here, for assistance by the HJT Team Experts.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post the log along with a brief description of your problem, a summary of any anti-malware tools you have used and a summary of any steps that you have performed on your own. Please include the top portion of the HijackThis log that lists version information. An expert will analyze your log and reply with instructions advising you what to fix.

It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy. Please be patient as they are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have no replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response, a team member, looking for a new log to work may assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and not open the thread to respond.

If after 5 days you still have received no response, then post a link to your HJT log here.

After posting a log you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files on your own, etc.) unless advised by a HJT Team member. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modification you make may complicate the malware removal process and could lead to your system being damaged further.
