Hi,
Thank God this site exists,
My name is Peter, I am a new member and have been searching your site now for a while to try and fing answers to my ongoing problems. I have followed advice on here and I have had at least some success as my P.C. is now working a lot better, not properly but better.
I am running XP home S.P.2 on which I have downloaded I.E. 7. I did use Firefox as my default browser, but since downloading I.E.7 firefox doesn't seem to load the pages correctly, it always seems to be waiting to complete the progress bar to finish downloading the ads on the page. I.E. 7 however, looks like its working fine.
Now when I am waiting for the P.C. to boot up, after the welcome screen, I have been getting a RUNDLL error screen saying that....C\Windows\system 32\peulqemp.dll module can't be found:confused: . Whilst this seems to have no affect on how my m/c. works it is none the less annoying and must mean something. There are others also that appear from time to time but it is this one that persists everytime I boot up.
I think I will dump Firefox now and use I.E.7 but how can I export all my bookmarked sites from Firefox to I.E. 7. I am using I.E.7 now as Firefox won't open this site anymore on my P.C. whereas I.E. will. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks,
Peter

Did a google on the file name but found nothing. Normally it is a program that has been uninstalled and now windows is looking for the file. But first post the hijack this log for Seth.

I looked at the log and suspect a malware infection.

Run HijackThis again and put a checkmark on the following entries, click Fix Checked and restart the computer.

For further clean up and disinfection, print the following instructions and bookmark this Web page.

Malware is the term used to describe computer infections such as Adware, Spyware, Viruses, and Trojan Horses.
You will need to run at least two malware scanners as well as an Antivirus scanner that are listed in the following instructions.
Anti-Malware and Anti-Virus scanners perform different tasks.
The reason to run multiple scanners is to ensure that no single scanner is missing something.

The time it takes will vary depending on your system and your internet connection.
Typically the SUPERAntiSpyware and Malwarebytes scanners will take between 30 and 90 minutes.
The Eset online scan should take between 1 and 3 hours.
In most cases, these scans will suffice to clean and disinfect your computer.

For best results print the following instructions and bookmark this Web page
To keep this guide printer-friendly, use your cursor to highlight the contents below.
From your browser select File - Print and in the printer dialog box under "Print range"
click the Selection choice to print out these instructions for removal of malware.

  • Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Download ATF-Cleaner from Snapfiles.com to remove "junk" files from your computer that may contain malware.
  • You can also download it from Majorgeeks.com
  • When you run ATF-Cleaner, check the items as shown below for Main.
  • For FireFox, be sure to click on the FireFox tab on top and check the items as shown below for FireFox
  • NOTE: If you don't have FireFox or Opera installed then they will be grayed out and can be ignored
  • Then click on "Empty Selected".
.
  • Install and run the free version (not the Professional version) of SUPERAntiSpyware from www.superantispyware.com
    • Accept any prompts to allow SUPERAntiSpyware to install the latest rules and infection definition files.
    • You do not have to send them your e-mail address, just click next.
    • You can leave the automated check for updates on.
    • You can uncheck "Send a diagnostic report to research center" if you don't want to send the information.
    • DO NOT allow SUPERAntiSpyware to protect your Home Page settings.
    • On the Top Left select the Scan your computer button.
    • Make sure there is a CHECK MARK on all Fixed Drives.
    • Click "Perform a Complete Scan". Click "Next" and reboot the computer when prompted to do so.
  • Disable your internet security by right clicking on its icon (usually located in the system tray next to the time display) and choosing "Exit", "Disable", or "Shut Down".
  • Run an online scan with Eset from http://www.eset.com/onlinescan
  • You must use Internet Explorer for this online scan. FireFox, Opera, etc will not work for this scan.
  • Accept the terms and click "Start".
  • Once the scanner is ready, check "Remove found threats" AND "Scan unwanted applications".
  • Click "Start" to begin the scan.
  • When completed restart your computer
Make sure your internet security is enabled, and then please return to Free PC Help and tell us how the computer seems to be operating.
At that time, you will receive instructions to assist you in removing malicious programs from your Add/Remove program list if warranted.

Thanks Seth,
I will run the scan again tonight and do as you suggest. I have done all of the latter instructions yesterday and found them very helpful and they have done the trick. My only issue now is with these error messages at start up. Once those have been sorted then all will be well again I hope. Should I run any of these programs on a regular basis, or are they something that I need to use to get out of trouble again, as and when the need arises. Thanks again,
Peter

Have you done ALL the scans and removed EVERYTHING they found ? This is important to know.

If malware was found and removed then there still might be damage that needs to be fixed after removal. I like maynardvdm could not find anything on the dll error at startup.

Post another Hijack log after the cleaning but also consider you may need to repair your system.

Your repair options will vary depending on your system.

This might also be a matter of what programs you have now or in the past.
Seth might know more about this so wait for his reply.

You're welcome.

Randy,

It sounds as if Peter ran the scans but hasn't yet removed the requested items from HijackThis. When he does so, it should remove the startup errors.

Should being the operative word Seth, I still think that when he has we should see an updated HJT log.

Hi Randy,
I'm pretty sure I removed everything, but I'm going to follow the instructions again after I have followed Seths' advice. I found this tutorial whilst browsing through the site the other day, that's when I tried it out. So being a bit of a novice I might not have done things correctly. I'll post a log file again once I have run the scan. Thanks,
Peter

The latter instructions Peter is referring to, is the scans from post #6. "Run the scan again" means run HT again to remove the former entries from post#6.

...but yes of course, we should see another HT log.

I can't thank you enough and I'll see how my funds are running. Will I need to run any of these programs on a regular basis. I hope you don't mind me passing on your name to a friend who's having the same sort of problems. I've got you bookmarked.

That's good to hear Pete and that log looks one hell of a lot cleaner but I'll let Seth have the last word on that.

Did I sniff a donation in the air? Sounds good to me Pete if I did and yes, please let your friend know of Free PC Help.

Hi Seth,
Followed your advice and after weeks of futile downloading of programs, bingo.

I can't thank you enough and I'll see how my funds are running. Will I need to run any of these programs on a regular basis. I hope you don't mind me passing on your name to a friend who's having the same sort of problems. I've got you bookmarked.

You're most welcome...the log is clean.

Feel free to run naked through the streets yelling, "Free PC Help rules!":)

You can remove HijackThis and MalwareBytes. I suggest you keep SAS (Superantispyware) as an on demand scanner as obviously Avast is not properly protecting your computer.

If you want real time protection and auto updates from sas, then you will need to purchase it. Typical cost is $40.00 US for a lifetime subscription, but every once in a while when you update the free version, an offer pops up for a lifetime Pro subscription for $20.00 US.

Either way, it's a steal for what that program provides.
