Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
RUNDLL32 is the Microsoft Windows program that loads DLLs into memory so
that they can be used by specific programs or by Windows. This behavior
could be associated with a programs not responding properly or is associated
with spyware programs and viruses. Anti-virus software and firewalls do not
fully protect your system against the majority of spyware and privacy
threats. Spyware is commonly bundled with software downloads, attached to
e-mails, or transmitted through networks so it can appear to be legitimate
software, but once installed it can be nearly impossible to detect and
remove without the help of a dedicated spyware removal tool such as:
Ad-Aware 6.0 (build 6.181)
Please make sure that you download the updates for each of these programs to
ensure complete detection of known spyware programs. Although nothing is
absolute in removing spyware and keeping it off, downloading and executing
the programs above can dramically decrease future infections.
Also please utilize free virus scans from the following sites:
After Spyware / Adware is remove, you may get an error finding files on
After you use anyone of these programs (with the exception of HiJackThis)
you may receive an error of some sort after rebooting your system. This is
pretty common. Many spyware programs add themselves in the Startup location
and execute when Windows boots. If you recieve an error when rebooting after
removing spyware, do not panic. This is more than likely a startup remnant
trying to access the spyware program that is no longer on your computer.
HiJackThis is a great utility to find and remove these startup remnants.
However, there is a less technical way of removing these items:
(1) Click START to RUN and type: msconfig
(2) Select the STARTUP tab
(3) Uncheck the file that pertained to the startup error message you
(4) Click APPLY and OK
(5) Reboot your system
If this fails to fix the startup error message after reboot, there are still
(1) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start
(2) Delete the icon that pertained to the startup error message you received
(3) Navigate to C:\Documents and Settings\username\Start
(4) Delete the icon that pertained to the startup error message you received
(5) Reboot your system

These days a lot of widely distributed online advertisements like web banners caution online users stating that their computers might have been contaminated with a harmful virus, code, or even malicious software. You need to be cautious of such advertisements because they are not real. In fact downloading any such advertisement can be harmful because sometimes spyware gets downloaded through these ant-spyware advertisements. Although the advertisements might look real and the promise of removing spywares especially in the current scenario may be tempting but restraint has to be maintained. Instead you can always visit some of the top anti-spyware sites and download their software by paying a small amount.
