Please could someone tell me if the following is a virus and how I should deal with it?

This message appears when windows has started up:

RUNDLL
Error loading c:\windows\system32\wqpbybpt.dll
The specified module could not be found.

I can't locate this anywhere on my pc or the windows xp disc and don't know what it is.

Be very grateful for any help.

Thanks.

Hey :whistling:

I think that maybe an important system file has gone bad... I don't think its a virus. I've seen this happen in many cases, but I think its an issue with the operating system file system. Unless your computer isn't booting and still works, you should see what other people have to say before we make the final conclusion.

Yes, that is the sign of an infection. Please do the following.

Thank you for the replies.

I'm not sure if I did right, but I ran the hijack programme and found the offending file in the list that came up. I then clicked the check box and followed the instructions given.

Now it's gone and doesn't appear when I log on to Windows.

That was, maybe, an unorthodox way of dealing with the issue but it appears to have worked.

Thanks, again.

That wasn't the proper way of taking care of your problem. There are probably more problems that you cannot see and without a trained eye you would not be able to remove the infection. That is why we have experts here trained to use HijackThis and help you remove your infections.
