Hey PC gods,
I've searched through the forums and
I can't seem to get the answers I need to fix
these probs: sudden complete shut down w/o warning,
error messages , mainly .EXEs. It could be anything
from MS paint.exe to my IE
( suchnsuch has generated errors and will now close)
sounds like a worm , 'think it's fixable? or should I recycle my PC? here's my HiJackThis....

Try this: ctrl-alt-del and terminate this process:

C:\WINNT\system32\rmtcfg\files\mdll.exe

Now run HijackThis and check and "fix" this entry:

C:\WINNT\system32\rmtcfg\files\mdll.exe

Navigate to the rmtcfg folder and send it to the recycle bin


This appears to be an undetected IRC Flood trojan

http://vil.mcafee.com/dispVirus.asp?virus_k=100427

http://216.239.57.104/search?q=cach.../backdoor.sumtax.html+mdll.exe&hl=en&ie=UTF-8

I include these references only to show that the reason it probably is not being detected is because it seems to be a combination of different exploits using the mdll.exe file and the rmtcfg folder -- neither of which is a default windows folder or file.

Have you installed IRC ?

Check in Add/Remove programs...

Yes, that's what I meant to copy/paste for deleting with HijackThis. Make sure the Running Process (mdll.exe) has not come back; terminate it if it has. You must do a ctrl-alt-del and end task it in the Task Manager window

You must save the HijackThis Scanlog to the desktop to see the Running processes, they do not show in the console scan itself.

Also, have you tried running a full system scan with updated definitions from Symantec?


Even removing this may not be enought as there are some viruses that simply corrupt every exe file on the system they can get to. Sometimes, if you are lucky, a good antivirus scan can repair the files, but sometimes not.

And I should have had you check and "fix" these as well. Do so with all browser windows closed. I'm surprised Spybot left them. Did you update it before running and reboot afterwards?
