Startup bug or normal?

by sirklash / August 12, 2010 4:21 AM PDT

Key prpgram File
HKCU:Run Configuring rundll32.exe C:\Users\ALOSHA\Local\temp\1269536

windwos7 32bit 2 hdds C primary

This file has recently apeared in my startup list and my computer's boot sequence has goten longer but not by alot. I am not sure wether this is a bug or simply a possible update tho im not sure why it would be in temp folder. So subsequently i am highly suspicious of it tho am reluctant to disable it as several months ago disabling a rundll.exe file rendered my previous pc unbootable.

Have you scan the computer for malware/virus?

superanti and malwarebytes found nothing but malaware identified the exact file stated as a trojan , thankyou very much for the help.

One more thing would malaware be able to work in conjunction with avg if i bought it?

EmsiSoft MalAware will work along with AVG.

It is because MalAware is a portable scanner only. It's not running in the background which means it is not going to protect your computer like AVG should but it's only a scanner and remover.

Just regularly scan the computer using the on-demand scanner like EmsiSoft MalAware, SUPERAntiSpyware Portable or Malwarebytes so that you will know if AVG missed in removing or detecting anything.
