any program i am trying to open (Windows XP Home), for example, notepad, i am getting this error message:
NOTEPAD.EXE - Bad Image
The application or DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\yepogofa.dll is not a valid Windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette.

since yesterday my firefox is opening on its own leading to unwanted sites. IE is unaffected. i am trying to describe what is happening:

if i click to open firefox to go to say, google.com, after a few seconds another firefox window is popping up leading to unwanted site. then another, then another!!! even if i click to open IE to go to say, google.com, after a few seconds a firefox window is popping up leading to unwanted site. then another, then another!!!

now, one may think this is virus/malware problem, but... i did full scan with AVG antivirus version 8.0, and with latest spyware doctor (pctools). even after reboot, the problem still persists! i don't know what the heck is going on.

here is log file from LATEST malwarebytes' scan:

i did several scans with malwarebytes before (both quick and full), but virus is coming back again and again, now with error messages (when windows starts, several similar error messages) and firefox pop-ups.

Your definition files for MBAM are WAY out of date. You need to update the program.


Please note the Holidays are here and I may be unavailable for a few days or more.
Please be patient, I've not forgotten you and will resume assistance when I return
Many of the other helpers are also visiting Family and Friends so please be patient.


Please DO NOT attach logs unless asked to. Copy/Paste all logs directly into your post. Thanks.

Try running this AntiVirus tool while I'm away to see if it can locate anything else that might be hidden.

Download to the desktop: Dr.Web CureIt
  • Doubleclick the drweb-cureit.exe file and Allow to run the express scan
  • This will scan the files currently running in memory and when something is found, click the yes button when it asks you if you want to cure it. This is only a short scan.
  • Once the short scan has finished, Click Options > Change settings
  • Choose the "Scan"-tab, remove the mark at "Heuristic analysis".
  • Back at the main window, mark the drives that you want to scan.
  • Select all drives. A red dot shows which drives have been chosen.
  • Click the green arrow at the right, and the scan will start.
  • Click 'Yes to all' if it asks if you want to cure/move the file.
  • When the scan has finished, look if you can click next icon next to the files found:
    Posted Image
    If so, click it and then click the next icon right below and select Move incurable as you'll see in next image:
    Posted Image
    This will move it to the %userprofile%\DoctorWeb\quarantaine-folder if it can't be cured. (this in case if we need samples)
  • After selecting, in the Dr.Web CureIt menu on top, click file and choose save report list
  • Save the report to your desktop. The report will be called DrWeb.csv
  • Close Dr.Web Cureit.
  • Reboot your computer!! Because it could be possible that files in use will be moved/deleted during reboot.
  • After reboot, post the contents of the log from Dr.Web you saved previously in your next reply with a new hijackthis log.

Then run this again
Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

  • Start MalwareBytes AntiMalware
    • Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware
    • Select the Update tab
    • Click Update
  • When the update is complete, select the Scanner tab
  • Select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
  • Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
  • When completed, a log will open in Notepad. please copy and paste the log into your next reply
    • If you accidently close it, the log file is saved here and will be named like this:
    • C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Malwarebytes\Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware\Logs\mbam-log-date (time).txt

Then RESTART the computer and run HJT Scan and save log.

Post back ALL the logs

I might not be able to get back with you on this for a few days, please be patient.

here is what i did so far:
updated malwarebytes > ran quick scan > removed all selected items > rebooted.

important: after reboot, i noticed two porn icons in my desktop installed by the virus were gone.

now, i downloaded Dr. Web CureIt, followed your direction completely.

after scan, i could not save log ("save report list" was greyed out) as Dr. Web said, "Done - no viruses found".

now i ran "HijackThis" and log is saved as follows (i did not do "Fix Checked"):

Please note the Holidays are here and I may be unavailable for a few days or more.
Please be patient, I've not forgotten you and will resume assistance when I return
Many of the other helpers are also visiting Family and Friends so please be patient.



Yes the system is still infected.
Don't do any online Banking or stuff that requires a password and I'll assist you further when I return.

Great glad to hear your system is running much better now.

Please Download OTMoveIt3 by Old Timer and save it to your Desktop.

  • Double-click OTMoveIt3.exe to run it.
  • While connected to the Internet, Click on the green CleanUp! button and it will populate a list of items to clean from your system that we used or may have used.
  • It should ask if you want to clean up, select Yes and allow the system to clean up these items.

NOW please reboot your computer to finish the cleanup process and post back the log from OTMoveIt3


Then run one more round of MBAM, UPDATE, Quick Scan.
The restart the computer and run HJT Scan and Save log

Post back all the logs and hopefully you're all clean now.

  • CCleaner

  • Double-click on the downloaded file "ccsetup215.exe" and install the application.
  • Keep the default installation folder "C:\Program Files\CCleaner"
  • Uncheck "Add CCleaner Yahoo! Toolbar and use CCleaner from your browser"
  • Click finish when done and close ALL PROGRAMS
  • Start the CCleaner program.
  • Click on Registry and Uncheck Registry Integrity so that it does not run
  • Click on Options - Advanced and Uncheck "Only delete files in Windows Temp folders older than 48 hours"
  • Click back to Cleaner and click on the Run Cleaner button on the bottom right side of the program.
  • Click OK to any prompts




Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware

  • Start MalwareBytes AntiMalware

  • When the update is complete, select the Scanner tab
  • Select Perform quick scan, then click Scan.
  • When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.

Looks pretty good now. Is there any sign of infection anymore? How is the system running now?

I would recommend you run this.

Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system.
Please download JavaRa and unzip it to your desktop.
***Please close any instances of Internet Explorer (or other web browser) before continuing!***
  • Double-click on JavaRa.exe to start the program.
  • From the drop-down menu, choose English and click on Select.
  • JavaRa will open; click on Remove Older Versions to remove the older versions of Java installed on your computer.
  • Click Yes when prompted. When JavaRa is done, a notice will appear that a logfile has been produced. Click OK.
  • A logfile will pop up. Please save it to a convenient location.
You can install a new version of Java once the system is cleaned up.

Okay looks good then.


At this time your system appears to be clean. Nothing else in the logs indicates that you are still infected.
Now that you appear to be clean, please follow these simple steps in order to keep your computer clean and secure:

Disable and Enable System Restore-WINDOWS XP
This is a good time to clear your existing system restore points and establish a new clean restore point:

Turn off System Restore

  • On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
  • Click Properties.
  • Click the System Restore tab.
  • Check Turn off System Restore.
  • Click Apply, and then click OK.
  • Reboot.
Turn ON System Restore
  • On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
  • Click Properties.
  • Click the System Restore tab.
  • UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
  • Click Apply, and then click OK.
This will remove all restore points except the new one you just created.

Here are some free programs I recommend that could help you improve your computer's security.

Spybot Search and Destroy
Download it from here. Just choose a mirror and off you go.
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spybot properly here

Install SpyWare Blaster
Download it from here
Find here the tutorial on how to use Spyware Blaster here

Install WinPatrol
Download it from here
Here you can find information about how WinPatrol works here

Install FireTrust SiteHound
You can find information and download it from here

Install hpHosts
Download it from here
hpHosts is a community managed and maintained hosts file that allows an additional layer of protection against access to ad,
tracking and malicious websites. This prevents your computer from connecting to these untrusted sites
by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your own local computer.
hpHosts Support Forum

Update your Antivirus programs and other security products regularly to avoid new threats that could infect your system.
You can use one of these sites to check if any updates are needed for your pc.
Secunia Software Inspector
F-secure Health Check

Visit Microsoft often to get the latest updates for your computer.
http://www.update.microsoft.com

The windows firewall is not sufficient to protect your system. It doesn't monitor outgoing traffic and this is a must.
I recommend Online Armor Free

A little outdated but good reading on how to prevent Malware

Keep safe online and happy surfing.



Since this issue is resolved I will close the thread to prevent others from posting into it. If you need assistance please start your own topic and someone will be happy to assist you.

The fixes and advice in this thread are for this machine only. Do not apply to your machine unless you Fully Understand how these programs work and what you're doing. Please start a thread of your own and someone will be happy to help you, just follow the Pre-Hijackthis instructions found here before posting Pre- HJT Post Instructions


Also don't forget that we offer FREE assistance with General PC questions and repair here PC Help
If you're pleased with the product Malwarebytes and the service provided you, please let your friends, family, and co-workers know. http://www.malwarebytes.org

No I do not. That would be too much software. Basically you need just a few of them.

A good Antivirus, a good Anti-Malware (you have Malwarebytes free, but a paid version offers live blocking of Malware as well as automated updates and scheduled scanning) - then a good firewall. The other items then fall into the realm of possibly. A lot depends on what and how you use your computer. If you have too many programs loaded then it will slow down the computer, but if you or someone else using the computer frequents gaming, or peer2peer sites or adult sites then you may want to add a couple others such as WinPatrol.

The links in my signature are for general information. Not everyone likes the same software that others do.

I hope this helps some, if you need or want a bit more explanation please let me know.

Most people seem to be happy with this free solution.
Avira AntiVir Personal - FREE Antivirus for a paid solution ESET/NOD32 is probably one of the better choices at this time.
