strange .dll loading at start-up

here is a detailed description of what is going on, hijackthis log is at the end:
1) first thing is kaspersky caught some sort of trojan and was able to delete all but two .dll files located in the system32 directory. i ended up having to delete them offline using dos from a bootcd. :)
2) after that, kaspersky scanned clean.
3) but then i noticed in process explorer that a 'rundll.exe' was still appearing at start-up. when i hover the mouse pointer over it in the process explorer window, it says that the file is actually a .dll in system32. searching this filename on google, i get nothing. now that's pretty suspicious, eh? whenever i reboot (which is rare) i just kill this process immediately and it never comes back during the session and my system seems to be running well enough (no pop-ups or system hangs, etc.).
4) but i am pretty sure this must be some kind of virus, right? here is the 'hijackthis' log, hopefully it can shed some light on what's going on?? oh, and please don't be confused-- i changed the names of some of my system directories using winlite. so, 'program files' is 'applications', 'windows' is 'wondoes', 'docs & settings' is 'users'.. i just liked those names better and why not? :) call me precocious!:
