Win32:PUP (I think) "Laptop went berserk" is an understatement
Posted 07 May 2012 - 11:21 AM
Just wanted to mention something else. Once my laptop computer was already going nuts, in my desperation, I was trying everything. I found this article: http://www.revthatup...e/#comment-3602 and replaced rundll32 with his file.
Maybe this made things even worse?

Thanks, CompCav! Also, I forgot your basic rule - not to do anything without your say so. Sorry about that. Hope running this Primary Hard Disk Self Test is OK with you... I think it might take a while, it's at 30% now. BTW, at the very top of this page it says:
PhoenixBIOS Setup Utility
Edit: in about 20 minutes, it went from 30% to 50% Complete. I'll report when it's over. (Writing this on a different laptop)

So please let me know the operating system of the other laptop you are using so that I can prepare a fix that will use it to burn a CD to boot the infected PC with.

The check is 80%. Would you like me to stop it? Thanks!

The window is shaking/blinking very fast, so I can't read most of what it says. What I CAN make out, and these are disjointed bits and pieces, not full sentences:
Diagnosis and repair details:
Number of repair attempts:1
(Blinking illegible and then) ...er, such as a camera or portable music... (illegible...) ...your computer. If you continue to see this message, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
System Disk =\Device\Harddisk0
Windows Directory = C:\Windows
AutoChkRun = 0
Number of root causes = 1
