DLL Error on Startup

Full, updated definitions scan returns no errors.

The full scan run during safe mode found no errors. BUT, there is a dll at startup message:

 

RunDLL

Error loading c:\Documents and Settings\userprofile\Local Settings\Application Data\ujenuqavefogutu.dll

The specified module could not be found.

Any thoughts?

Likely the file was removed previously by AV, but did not remove the line from the registry.

Create a system restore point, then open regedit and search for ujenuqavefogutu.dll, delete all key's containing this string, continue searching until all have been removed.)

Click Start and then select Run.
Type MSCONFIG
Locate the Startup tab.
If you can define or locate this executable within the Startup list, uncheck it and then reboot.
On the next log on you will see a dialog box stating that MSCONFIG was run. Check the box in the lower left corner and you will not be presented with this dialog again.

Reece400:  I backed up and then searched the registry.  Nothing was found.

David-Howard:  I checked MSConfig in the Startup list and nothing is listed that is even remotely close to the ujenuqavefogutu.dll that is spitting out the error on startup and I checked the other tabs as well and cannot locate anything with this name.

It is possible then that there is still some malware on your system, which is attempting to load this DLL. I would then recommend using msconfig to disable all applications which you are not 100% sure of, and enable them one by one until you deterine which program is causing this message. Once determined you can then re-enable all applications but this one.

You won't find the file if it's already gone hence the error loading. The file loads with rundll32.exe so in msconfig startup you would be looking at a startup item that may have a very different name(but pointing to the file)
just examples:
"MSServer"   which loads under --> rundll32.exe
"98D0CE0C16B1"  loads with rundll32.exe
 
Try Hijackthis or Sysinternal's autoruns the entry should show up there.

Download Hijackthis:
http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/tools/security_tools/hijackthis/download 
Open Hijackthis, click "Do a system scan and save a logfile" don't fix anything yet.
Paste the log in the "Code Snippet" or "Attach File" window.

If the file is gone, you can also just try using any scanners that also cleans up the registry, CCleaners or scanners like MBAM, SUPERAntispyware etc.
Or we can also use Combofix in case there are still some nasties present in the system.
