|I recently got rid of the siszyd32 trojan with MalwareBytes but there is still an entry in the startup tab in msconfig that wasn't there not long ago, esafoqesidanape is the name of it. I found a .dll file by that name in my windows folder, also a registry entry, and I can't delete either. I've run Avast antivirus, AdAware, MalwareBytes, Hijack This, and SpyBot. The registry enty is:|
04-HKLM\..\Run: [Fwirayazadahigu] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\esafoqesidanape.dll",Startup
Startup is extremely slow, takes 15-20 minutes or more and my sound is gone. Otherwise, my computer runs fine. In device manager, 7 entries under Sound are disabled--6 are Microsoft Kernel, the 7th is Multimedia Audio Controller. For the Microsoft Kernels, I found this message: "Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)". For the Multimedia Audio Controller, it said that the drivers are not installed. I tried to reinstall them and it wouldn't do it. Could this be related to the malware problem? I got a new sound card a year or two ago.
I appreciate any advice you can give me.
