    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with malware. I have therefore moved your thread to our Security and the Web forum.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

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

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

    Also, let me know the results of the Panda Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Please check the spelling of xwcnlhn.dll. I am unable to find any reference to it on an internet search except for this post.

    Thanks Howard. Do you know which BHO this is? I should have said I only found it on Techspot, because that did show in the search but I didn't check it.

    No mate, I don`t know which BHO it is, only that it`s nasty. New variants/infections pop up all the time mate. In a lot of cases the .dll files are totally randomly named and that`s why we don`t find any hits on Google/Yahoo.

    Regards Howard :)
