question about howard_hopkinso's thread

  1. I was recently using howard_hopkinso's step by step thread to getting rid of viruses and malware and while using the tools, one of them deleted something important evidently. Everytime i log in i get this message:
    {
    Error Loading C:\Windows\system32\bmyvbact.dll

    The specified module could not be found.

    }


    BTW thank you howard_hopkinso for producing that thread it was very very helpful.

    is there anything wrong?

    also i have been getting an error after logging on:
    {
    Error loading C:\windows\system32\bmyvbact.dll

    the specified module could not be found.
    }

    I have been getting random sites popping up every once in a while for the past day. thanks ahead of time

    The bmyvbact.dll is probably nasty and needs further investigation.

    Go and read this thread HERE and post a HJT log as an attachment into this thread.

    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.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    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) - {9650EDD5-757D-4E72-BA45-0274D3AEE1Cb} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\nsqxlmmv.dll

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [WinFlyer32.dll] "rundll32.exe" C:\WINDOWS\system32\WinFlyer32.dll,Run

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [SoundService] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\system32\bmyvbact.dll",setvm

    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.

    These are the filepaths you need to enter into killbox.

    C:\WINDOWS\system32\nsqxlmmv.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\WinFlyer32.dll
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\bmyvbact.dll

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

    Post a fresh HJT log as well as an AVG Antispyware log.

    Regards Howard :)

    thanks

    I am very grateful. Here is the HJT log like you asked. I ran the anti spyware thing and only found a cookie. Again thank you very much.

    Your HJT log is now clean.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

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

    Regards Howard :)
