Here's a few scanners to try out.

Windows OneCare safety scanner (Use Internet Explorer to open and run this scanner):

http://safety.live.com

ESET NOD32 Anti-Virus Online Scan (Use Internet Explorer to open and run this scanner):

http://www.eset.com/onlinescan/

Then I recommend you download and install the following applications:

Free trial of ESET NOD32 (Yeah, you just scanned, however that scanner doesn't run a startup scan like the software-version):

http://www.eset.com/products/nod32.php

Ad-Aware Free:

http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

Spybot Search & Destroy:

AVG Anti-Rootkit Free:

http://www.softpedia.com/get/Antivirus/AVG-Anti-Rootkit.shtml


I HIGHLY recommend that you install all these scanners before scanning anything. Make sure to restart after each installation, regardless if they ask you to restart or not. Do not run either the online or offline scanners at the same time, they will cause a conflict. So please remember, run each scanner at least once, but one at a time. That includes the downloaded scanners and the online scanners. Don't run either at the same time.

Let us know how it works for you, hope you get this problem resolved.

That we have a trojan


If you have a trojan or any kind of virus, you will require either a knowledge of how to clean registries, as well as files out of your computer.

Or you will require software to cleanup. If you don't have software, I would say use Malware bytes, Spybot Search and Destroy, and to cleanup after a virus scan I would suggest CCleaner for a registry cleaning and file cleanup.

I hope this helps.

Trojan dropper agent


Try this little gem, Malwarebytes, this is the best that I have found, and it is what I use. I have never had any false positves or any other problem with it at all. It is really a great program that I recommend to anyone who needs to get rid of malware.

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?tag=mncol

If you need anti-virus protection as well I would try this one, AVG-Free, it is the best one that I have found. If you do have any anti-virus program you should get rid of it before you install AVG or any other anti-virus prtogram, especially if it was not protecting you system very well, and you only need to have one good anti-virus program running on your computer.

http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=mncol

I would also suggest installig Spywareblaster, it does not scan for malware or viruses, but it does block you from connecting to some really malicious web sites.

http://download.cnet.com/SpywareBlaster/3000-8022_4-10196637.html?tag=mncol

These are all free programs that I personally use, and they are all top notch in performance, they do exactly what they say they do and they do it very well.

I cannot start all my .exe files in Vista. I cannot also run my spyware. I think its the rundll32.exe virus.


Most Probably it is a virus that has infected your computer.

Please follow the steps below:
1) Restart the computer
2) Start tapping the F8 key
3) Select Safe mode from the list of options.
4) On the login screen select your Username.
5) Scan for the virus using the antivirus/antispyware.
6) Remove all the infections
7) Restart the computer.

It should work fine now.

Following repair by an anti-virus file UACxitmtbjtwv.dll seems to have been damaged or removed, can you help? I need to replace / repair this file but don't have original discs, can I download? Regards,


I can't find any mention of this dll file anywhere. I believe that what you have is a remnant of a virus. I think it was a program that was set to run when Windows started up that probably kept reinfecting your computer with the virus and now that you have repaired the virus, this program is still trying to start but is missing that file. I would recommend running "msconfig" and going into the startup configuration and seeing if you can find any unfamiliar programs that are loading on startup. It will probably be a trial and error type of troubleshooting where you disable and enable them one at a time and try to find which program is causing that error message for that file when it loads. It could also be under "Start" "All Programs" >"Startup".

Runtime error 216 at 0016d758


Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

This issue can occur if your computer is infected with a SubSeven Trojan virus (per, Microsoft).

Run a virus scan and rid of all viruses, malware, etc.

If you have a free antivirus, remove it and install a free trial of Kaspersky. This will rid the virus. You can then uninstall Kasperky and install the free one after removal of trojan.

Hope this helps!

Help!!


It may or may not be a virus. If it is a virus, it will NOT be easy to get rid of it. Download and run (free) SuperAntiSpyware:
http://www.superantispyware.com/?tag=GOOGLE-SUPERANTISPYWARE
or similar program.
Don't get your hopes up, though. Not that SuperAntiSpyware isn't a good free program, it will find it and remove it, but the virus is so vicious that most any spyware/antvirus program can't remove all of it. There's always that one little registry entry that can't be found. So, IF it is a virus, and IF SuperAntiSpyware or similar program can't get rid of it (it comes back after being removed), don't waste any more time! You'll need to erase your hard drive (using Sure Delete or similar program) and do a clean install of the operating system...of course, after backing up your existing files up first. Be careful not to drag the virus with you.

It may also just be a recently installed (or _uninstalled_) program that is messing up the works. If so, try uninstalling that program and use another similar program.

If you recently _uninstalled_ a program, you can try a registry cleaner. I use eusing.com's registry cleaner.

After all that, you will probably have to go to start>run>type in: cmd > type in: sfc/scannow (Have your installation cd ready.) to replace any system files that may have been damaged or deleted either by the registry cleaner or other "defective" software when it was installed or removed.

Additionally, (I can't remember what it is for Vista, so this is for XP, but should be similar in Vista) go to: start>settings(classic view)control panel>administrative tools>event viewer>applications
Post back any warnings you see (in full), as there may be a specific application that is causing the problem. That "problem" application may be spyware or a third party application that is not compatible with Vista.

IF you hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys and hit the "Del" key, select "task manager" info in there may help idenify the problem process or application.
Here's the Microsoft website for problems with Windows Vista:
http://support.microsoft.com/ph/11732#tab0
Try it, it may work for you.

Stopping Windows updates


Go to Control Panel --> go to Security Center --> Automatic Updates and go to it's options, properties or preferences page. Select "Turn off automatic updates"

A sidenote though, I honestly do not think your online virus scan is reliable. If you update by using Windows Update or Microsoft Update there will be no virusses. There's a big change the scanner itself is harmful software named Scareware (it tells you something is wrong, or potentionally harmful, then it tells you to download an exotic virusscanner or something to protect you but infect creates even more trouble by means of spam, spyware, pop-ups or trojans.)

Try installing a virus scanner from a trustes developer. Don't want to pay for it? Don't worry. There are some pretty good (and trusted) free ones.

Try this one:
[Grisoft AVG Free Edition]

I hope this answers your question, please rate.
