As I write this to you, I am feeling relieved, as I have just managed to come out on top of a heavy virus situation. I downloaded a file, and, unkown to McAfee (I now have, Avast, McAfee and SUPERantispyware, it contained a virus. This installed a few more viruses and some spyware. I have removed everything except one thing.
Twikelaguzeya. It has a DLL called usojahoz.dll. I have renamed the DLL so it cannot open (I think :o ), and told it not to open on startup (using CCleaner), but this takes no effect as I think there is a registry value making it open on startup and changing the settings again! Can someone give me some suggestions of where to find it? Sorry I'm a bit of a noob with the registry (Google turned out nothing for either the application name or dll file).

Thanks muchly for your time :)

You can use regedit and search the keys for the dll but personally I hate making changes to the registry. Download Malwarebytes and run it. It should find the entries and give you the options to remove them.

I agree with rch1231 - Run MBAM and see what shakes out
-- Also, you really should not be running multiple AV apps. Remove one.

If you want to search the registry for for those known file names, try Bill James' or Bobbi Flekman's Registry Search tools:

Well is it alright if I have 2 anti-virus at once? Cos SUPERantispyware I just use for scans. Only avast and McAfee are actual real-time antivirus.
I tried Malwarebytes nearer the start of my problem, and that didn't turn anything out. I managed to stop the DLL process the other day and delete so I should be OK.
Still, I'll have a look in the registry and see if somethings still there.
Thanks guys :)

I did a search with Bobbi Flekmans's tool, but it didn't turn out anything. I think it's gone then. Thanks for the help guys :)

U can use [removed by Mod] it will automatically fix the registry errors!

Oh damn Crunchie. I have been using CCleaner to clean the registry but only occasionly. At it backs it up first.

At it backs it up first.

So long as you make sure to back it up - better safe than sorry.

-- You really should have ONE AV app. I was not counting SAS - only the two you mentioned:
McAfee and Avast!
There is a high potential for conflicts, slowdowns and loss of effectiveness with more than one resident AV.
