First download and run click here free trial (it's free forever) and try scanning again

Download and run SuperAntiSpyware click here and MBAM click here

Run them one after the other. Between them they should remove the malware.

Thanks guys..I am running the first one..and it has found 2 issues..still running.

Widows Defender is not a program I would rely on,
Malwarebytes and SuperAntispyware are the best in my opinion.

TBH I thought I had disabled it..I am with Virgin and use their software...they missed it completely and defender raised his head and picked them up...But that's all...It has told me I am "All clear"..but this malware app has picked them up again....Hmmm

Maybe remove them then run C Cleaner and then switch system restore off.
When you reboot switch system restore back on.And try another scan with the same program.

Also try scanning in Safe Mode, after turning System Restore off

I would think seriously about removing your Virgin Security as it is not very good and W/defender and start using something better.

I left that running whilst I went to work, came home and checked the progress.
It found 15 issues..5 of which were "Fake Trojan"
And a reboot seems to have cleared them all up.
Will this sort out the rundll32 problem ?..or is there a next step.

I shall give some serious thought to changing my AV and spyware software...
Thanks to all so far..most reassuring and helpful.

It should have cleared the run.dll problem. If not come back.
Suggest Avast Free Antivirus click here
Make sure your Vista Firewall is turned on, and scan every couple of weeks using the two programs you just used.
