Specs: Windows XP
I have a message that comes up every time I open windws which says RUNDLL
Error loading fjof.sto
The specified module could not be found.

What do I do?

I am not sure if it is connected but this started just after a Trojan Horse was removed by AVG professional

... the horse was put into the stable but the route it takes to load up is still kicking in! Windows is looking for the rider!

... go to "start" run (type) regedit [press] OK

... follow the path below:

+HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run << click that folder

... in the right pane look for "fjof.sto" right click option "delete"

... or go to "start" run (type) msconfig [press] OK

... check/tick "selective startup" click startup (tab) uncheck "fjof.sto"

... after the pc restarts take another look to see if anything "new" is kicking in!

I am using Windows XP Professional, and have followed your suggestions (both), but could not find the file in either of the locations.
I also did a file search from C: and My Computer, and it does not show up at all. Yet, each time I boot up the computer, the message appears and I have to click OK to continue and make the message disappear.
Any additional suggestions?

"...each time I boot up the computer, the message appears..."

"yochim" does the message refer to "fjof.sto" or another filename?

... I assume you used an antivirus/malware remover first like the person prior? (mrmessy41)

... try this download "Starter" click here

... after install open "starter" then click the "startups" (tab)

... in the left pane highlight (click) the word "registry" then in the right pane uncheck anything related to the path and filename of "fjof.sto"

... Starter >>screenshots<<click

... you should be able to find the critter with the above tool!

I am using AVG 9.0 free addition, which caught the Trojan, but that is all.
I just downloaded and used the Starter Program you suggested, and the file is not showing in the registry folder.
Any other ideas?
All suggestions are appreciated. I just can't find the file anywhere.

Sorry, but I am not computer savy enough to undersand what you are trying to get me to do.
I saved a screen shot in Microsoft Power Point, I do not seem to have Paint.
But, I don't understand the tinypic program, and have not been able to figure out how copying the file into that will load it into this forum.
Please explain, as I am becomming more befuttled.

"Just completed trying this one, which is the 3rd such program I have downloaded and tried, and no luck"

When you are infected, it is very common for the infection to stop you installing a fixit program, here is another program to try, use the routine for other programs & you may need to try 2 or 3 programs to see if they deal with the infection.

Try it in Safe mode.
If it won't run, rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to mb.exe to help work around certain malware that will block it from being run.
If it still will not run.
1: Go to Control Panel > Programs and Features and uninstall Malwarebytes.
Next redownload Malwarebytes but rename it before you download it to your desktop. As you are in the process of downloading when you get to the point that the "enter name of file to save to" box appears, in the "filename" slot, rename mbam-setup.exe to something.exe, then click Save.
If it installed but will not run, navigate to this folder:
2: C:\Programs Files\Malwarebytes' AntiMalware
At the top of the page, Tools > Folder Options > View, click > Show hidden files and folders and untick > Hide extensions for known file types.

Rename all the .exe files in the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware folder and try to run it again.
When it opens, update 1st.
If it won't update after installing, update manually.

Download & install.

"...Any additional suggestions?..."

... I'd say start again but let someone else do it for you! (perhaps your mother!)

Thanks, you've been a lot of help, but not as much as your mother.
I expected more from this form than insults from people who lead you to believe they are really trying to help.

... oh sorry perhaps not your mother then

.... you must know someone who has a little bit of an idea how to post a screenshot, because of that I am led to believe instructions prior had'nt been followed!

... I am fairly sure "starter" would solve the problem or at least show the path for removal.

"...I don't understand the tinypic program..."

... click onto "Browse" then you browse to were you saved the screenshot pic click it then click upload, links will then be generated, post the fullscreen one here.

.... or ask someone else to do it for you!

......ps ... I'm posting from a lunatic asylum (link below)

Holy Cow! That was a tough one to clean. It did not show up in regedit or the startup options. The reg cleaner I bought last year did squat! The Free Super cleaner sugested on this blog worked after a few cleanups and reboots. I reallly made headway when I cleaned the other users on this computer!
Thanks for the suggestions and remember it does not always look and act the same from other computers and users.

For some reason I have the urge to call my mom and I'm not even sick....

I tried a lot of these tips, downloaded 5 programs, and finally got it off with the http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
I hope everyone has better luck than I did. This one was a booger.

"Sorry, but I am not computer savy enough to undersand what you are trying to get me to do."

It is not rocket science to learn how to use google search. Here is a How-to from this forum:
http://www.computing.net/howtos/sho...

It's a fact that using a search engine helps in solving many problems and YES, it does increase your computer skills ;-)

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers
