I continue to get a RUNDLL can not find C:|WINDOWS\system32\upefwdyk.dll. Specific module could not be found. This appears after I had identified multiple viruses (smithfraud etc) and was forced to change and delete etc. I will add the last hijackthis info if this helps.

Goto start->run
type: regedit [enter]

goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
goto SOFTWARE
goto MICROSOFT
goto WINDOWS
goto CURRENTVERSION
goto RUN
click on the folder run, which you've just openend
You'll see a white icon with a red 'ab' in it an the right side saying:
rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\upefwdyk.dll"
select it and press delete.

Job's done

Good luck!

I did all that you suggested. But since I am color blind I don't know if the "ab" is red. I see: f48a4ba9 REG_SZ rundll32.exe "C:\windows\system32\upefwdyk.dll.
Should I delete everything in the f48a4ba9 line?

You can also use hijackthis which is way more easier :). There are other objecys to remove too here.

Can you please do the following.

===============

You will have to disable Spybot's Teatimer before we begin, as it will interfere with the fix. To do this can you start Spybot and go to the Mode button and select Advanced. Go to Tools > Resident and uncheck the box next to Tea-Timer. Make sure that the icon in the system tray is no longer there. If it is, just right click on it and select "Exit".
Download ResetTeaTimer.bat.
Double click ResetTeaTimer.bat to remove all entries set by TeaTimer.
Do not forget to re-enable teatimer when we are done :).
If teatimer gives you a warning afterwards that some changes were made, allow this instead of blocking it.

===============

Scan with HijackThis and then place a check next to all the following, if present:


O2 - BHO: Explorer - {7348D74C-731B-DECE-9F8A-A37D8214708E} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\wlcstp32.dll

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [f48a4ba9] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\upefwdyk.dll",b

O16 - DPF: {4E7BD74F-2B8D-469E-DEFA-EB76B1D5FA7D} -

O21 - SSODL: KernelRom - {b8d00065-6f02-42cd-88ea-fd22242b62eb} - (no file)
O21 - SSODL: ComponentSys - {23fec587-6da2-448f-a9dc-ab49c93acb0a} - (no file)


Now, close all instances of Internet Explorer and any other windows you have open except HiJackThis, click "Fix checked".

===============

Locate and delete the following item(s), if present. Make sure you are able to view system and hidden files/ folders:

files...

C:\WINDOWS\system32\wlcstp32.dll

-

Note that some of these file(s)/folder(s) may or may not be present. If present, and cannot be deleted because they're 'in use', try deleting them in Safe Mode by doing the following:

  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear.

Select the first option to run Windows in Safe Mode hit enter.

-

Reboot.

===============

To help protect your system from hostile ActiveX content, or special 'downloadable' files:

Download, install and keep updated, SpywareBlaster. If you've installed it for the first time:

1) Check for any available updates; if present, they'll be automatically downloaded and installed.
2) Next, "Enable all protection".
3) Exit the program.

-

Note: Remember to regularly check for updates.

===============

After rebooting, rescan with hijackthis and post back a new log. Please let me know how your pc is now.
