I am running win98SE with Pc-cillin that is telling me that I have Alemod.G trojan in Wininet.dll file.
I have been reading the other posts regarding this virus and the others seen to have the file in their system32 folder under windows - my Wininet file is in my Win/Sys folder. Should I follow instructions that they have been given? My symptom - when I open Outlook Express prog my anti-virus prog warns me that something is attempting to put a setup.exe file in my temp folder and then a file called x19b7d5190.tmp. It states that it is a virus but cannot delete it only quaranteen it. I have tried running Pc-cillin in safe mode, have hi-jack,ad-aware, spybot, etc nothing helps. As long as i don't use my email prog everything seems to be fine. I have also went to the 2 sites recommended in the forum to get an online scan so i can get a 2nd opinion as to actually having a bad wininet file but when i attempt to run them, my system locks up! What to do????

Please read and follow all instructions in the pinned topic titled "Preparation Guide For Use Before Posting A Hijackthis Log". You may even have performed some of these steps already. About half way down are instructions for downloading HijackThis and creating a 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. A member of the Team will walk you through, step by step, on how to clean your computer.

Start a new topic, give it a relevant title and post your 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.

Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the HJT Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, 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, edit the registry, 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 modifications you make may cause confusion for the member assisting you and complicate the malware removal process.
