    So my computer is really slow. My mcafee security thing keeps saying that "pmnno.dll" in Windows/System32 is infected. And I can't do anything to delete it.

    I just tried to get rid of Winfixer too. I dunno if that's even gone yet.

    So should I check the pmnno file in my hijackthis log?

    Someone please help, here is my HijackThis log:

    Hi and welcome to TSG,

    That is an older version of HijackThis. Please get the new one and post a new log. You can get it here:

    I tried to run that HijackThis but it wouldn't let me. I unzipped it but it still had some error. I don't think I have winzip.

    I'm sooooooooo computer illiterate. Sorry. :(

    It's not a zipped file, it's a direct download. What is the exact error message you got?

    Adware-Virtumundo Removal Tool v1.2 (Associated with WinFixer Popups)

    Note: This tools does not remove the WinFixer application. WinFixer alone does not cause popups or disrupt the system. If WinFixer was installed on your system because Adware or a Trojan Downloader installed it without your permission, please remove it using the Add/Remove Programs Control Panel Applet.

    If Virtumundo is not found, the tool will exit showing the log file.
    If Virtumundo is found it will do the following:

    Version 1.1
    Create a Date/Time Stamped log file (VBG.TXT) on the All Users profile's Desktop.
    Kill Internet Explorer and Explorer processes.
    Rename the infected files with a .vir extension (this is to disable them from being run)
    Remove the Browser Helper Object registry key
    Adds a registry value to block file from running in Internet Explorer again.
    Remove the Winlogon Notify registry key
    Automatically restart the computer (via STOP error)
    Note: This is a BLUE SCREEN "Fatal Error" Message. It is normal and expected. The tool ends an important Windows Process that was protecting the file and NT Security STOPS the system as soon as it detects this is happening.

    Version 1.2
    Removed the instruction to Stop McShield
    Cleaned up some logging messages.
    Added checking for BHO with no default name. These entries will be checked to see if they are referenced to be start up with WinLogon. If it is, it will be tagged as Virtumundo and removed.

    VirusScan will now be able to remove the files normally when you run an on-demand scan.

    Download Link -> http://secured2k.home.comcast.net/tools/VirtumundoBeGone.exe [76.2 KB]MD5 SUM: a210c12a8264c024da5e0b05cb082a14

    Then run your antivirus to remove any left over files

    Post a fresh HJT log & the report from this tool please.

    Go to Control Panel - Add/Remove programs and remove:

    MyWay


    Rescan with HijackThis and have it fix these entries:

    R0 - HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = http://www.dell4me.com/myway


    How's everything running now?

    Everything is running great, thanks. MyWay wasn't there, so I'm assuming that's a good thing.

    Thanks again for everything!!!!! :) :)

    Great! You're welcome.

    Now you should turn system restore off to flush out all previous system restore points, then turn it back on and create a new restore point:

    To turn off system restore, on the Desktop, right click on My Computer and click on Properties.
    Click the System Restore tab.
    Check Turn off System Restore.
    Click Apply and then click OK.

    Restart your computer, turn System Restore back on and create a restore point.

    To create a new restore point, click on Start – All Programs – Accessories – System Tools and then select System Restore.

    In the System Restore wizard, select Create a restore point and click the Next button.

    Type a name for your new restore point then click on Create.


    I also recommend downloading SPYWAREBLASTER & SPYWAREGUARD for added protection.

    Read here for info on how to tighten your security.



    Delete your temporary files:

    In safe mode navigate to the C:\Windows\Temp folder. Open the Temp folder and go to Edit - Select All then Edit - Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Go to Start - Run and type %temp% in the Run box. The Temp folder will open. Click Edit - Select All then Edit - Delete to delete the entire contents of the Temp folder.

    Finally go to Control Panel - Internet Options. On the General tab under "Temporary Internet Files" Click "Delete Files". Put a check by "Delete Offline Content" and click OK. Click on the Programs tab then click the "Reset Web Settings" button. Click Apply then OK.

    Empty the recycle bin.


    You should trim down your start-ups as there are too many running. You can research them at these sites and if they aren’t required at start-up then you can uncheck them in msconfig via Start - Run - type msconfig and then click on the start-up tab.
