    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    First, go to add remove programmes in your control panel and uninstall anything to do with(if there).

    Gold Codec

    Close control panel and reboot your computer.

    Delete the entire Gold Codec folder from your programme files.

    Then, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.


    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    After you`ve followed the instructions below, make sure you download, install and run AVG Antispyware as per the instructions in the link I gave you.

    Download the Pocket Killbox programme from HERE. Extract it but don`t run it yet.

    You might want to copy and paste these instructions into a notepad file. Then you can have the file open in safe mode, so you can follow the instructions easier.

    Boot into safe mode, under your normal user name(NOT THE ADMINISTRATOR ACCOUNT). See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial61.html

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how here.> http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/tutorial62.html

    Run HJT with no other programmes open(except notepad). Click the scan button. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {ae18da4e-be15-4925-81bb-890c04af0200} - (no file)

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {CDEEC43D-3572-4E95-A2A5-F519D29F00C0} - (no file)

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {57F02779-3D88-4958-8AD3-83C12D86ADC7} - (no file)

    O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {96ebbe6a-2864-4345-b32b-26ee9be524b5} - (no file)

    O9 - Extra button: Advanced Searchbar - {57F02779-3D88-4958-8AD3-83C12D86ADC7} - (no file)

    O9 - Extra 'Tools' menuitem: Advanced Searchbar - {57F02779-3D88-4958-8AD3-83C12D86ADC7} - (no file)

    O21 - SSODL: gimmicks - {40dcff6e-af8d-4183-8ebe-a82270ac449e} - C:\WINNT\system32\dcvwaah.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Run the killbox.exe file. When it loads type the full path to the file you would like to delete in the field and check the delete file on reboot button. press the Delete File button (looks like a red circle with a white X). It will prompt you to reboot, select no until you have finished inputting the files you want to delete, only then allow it to reboot and hopefully your files will now be deleted. If your computer doesn`t automatically restart, restart it manually.

    This is the filepath you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINNT\system32\dcvwaah.dll

    Once your system has rebooted, rehide your protected OS files.

    Post a fresh HJT log and an AVG Antispyware log.

    Regards Howard :)

    Your HJT log is clean.

    However, despite my requests, you still haven`t posted an AVG Antispyware log.

    Unless you do, I can`t say whether your system is clean or not.

    Regards Howard :)

    Edit: I`ve just seen your last post, so it doesn matter about the AVG log.

    If you have any further virus/spyware problems, please post in this thread.

    wmpdxm.dll is a dll for windows media player. Reinstall whatever version of WMP you use and see if that helps.
