rundll error

When I start up my computer I get the following error message
Rundll

Error loading c/windows/system32/pawxqkac.dll
the specified module could not be found.

What is this and how do I get rid of it. I cannot access the internet on my
computer because of this. Help.

"Error loading C:\Windows\System32\pawxqkac.dll"

Norton removed it and that's why it isn't found. But Norton didn't
remove the reference to it in the registry. Here's one way to remove it.

Click Start, Run, type REGEDIT, click OK. Press the Home key, press F3,
type the name of the file into the search pane. Click "Find Next", and
when located, delete the reference to the file. Press F3 to continue
the search.

You can click File, Export, and save the entry to the Desktop. If you
remove it and there's a problem, double-click the .reg file you exported
to the Desktop and it'll be added to the registry again. You can create
a restore point before editing the registry too.

This won't fix your inability to get on the internet though. Run
Norton, as you stated, and see if that helps.

Re: rundll error

I ran the Norton scan and everything was good. I went to start, run,
msconfig and found the file and disabled it. So now the error message is
gone, but when I go to start, run, command and then type in ping
www.yahoo.com, this error message comes up..

16 bit MS_DOS Subsystem

c/windows/system32/command.com
CS: ofo 3 IP: ffe4 OP:fe ff 1d o9 e9

This is appartently what is keeping my internet from working. I know the
internet to my computer is working, but for some reason I cannot connect with
it. Can you help me?

Can you get email? Is there an error message when you try to get email,
or go to a web site?

NETSH

Click Start, Run, type:

netsh winsock reset

Press Enter key

Restart the system

You can also try this software download from a working machine:

Re: rundll error

I didn't try the email, but there are no error messages when I try to go on
the interenet. It just says this page cannot be displayed. I even tried
microsoft.com and still nothing. I tried doing a system restore from an
earlier date, and then I turn the computer off, and it says system restore
didn't work. Now when I go there, there is no date in bold to restore it to.
I haven't had any problems with connecting to the internet until the other
day. It was working fine, and then it just quit.

Try the NETSH commands in my previous post.

System Restore fails to restore:

Re: rundll error

Okay, as soon as I can get a hold of my son at home, I will try what you told
me. One thing I think it might be, is a box kept popping up and I cannot
remeber what the contents were, but the options in the box said "something
(recommended) or Block. My son chose block, and I think that might be why we
cannot get on the internet. I don't know what he blocked.

I think you still infected, hence the command.com, you need to run a
thorough scan by following these steps:

Go through these Cleaning steps:
1... First, try to clean up your caches, Internet files and delete cookies
by doing this:
Click Start >> Control Panel >> Double click Network and Internet
Connections >> Double click Internet Options.
On the IE properties windows you will see these Taps:
General | Security | Privacy | Content | Connections | Programs |
Advanced
Under General Tab clear your History, Internet Files and Cookies.
Then click on Advanced tab and scroll down to under the Browsing Option:
[&] Browsing
[ ] Enable Third-Party browser extensions (Req Rest) uncheck this box.
Then click on Programs Tab and click Manage Add-Ons and Disable all non
Verified Add-Ons (You should Renable them later one-by-one and see the
culprit and update it or remove it.
How to manage Add-Ons:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/883256
Scan for malware from here:
Spybot Search & Destroy
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/index.html

Run a scan from here on-line:
http://security.symantec.com/sscv6/d...d=ie&venid=sym
http://www3.ca.com/securityadvisor/virusinfo/scan.aspx
Download Avast Cleaner (offline scanner) from here:
http://www.avast.com/eng/avast-virus-cleaner.html
Lots of tools to download and disinfect your machine (offline scanner):
http://www.bitdefender.co.uk/site/Do...eeRemovalTool/

After the scan run disk cleanup on your drive.


2- Download the Hijackthis and send the report to one of many
forums for analysis and troubleshooting:
http://www.merijn.org/index.php
When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
(http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en...ols/hijackthis) is
the preferred tool to use.
It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware. Post
your log to http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30,
http://castlecops.com/forum67.html,
http://forums.subratam.org/index.php?showforum=7, or other appropriate
forums for expert analysis, not here.
HTH.
Let us know how it is going.
