DLL QUESTION

Hi guys, I am an educated person but I am afraid I cannot speak intelligently when it comes to computers. You guys who understand all this stuff are geniuses as far as I'm concerned. My knowledge of computers is so limited that I don't even know if I posted this question in the proper category. If I didn't, please ask someone who you know could help me, to look at this. My question is: Do I need the following dll files?
sdkoo.dll C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32, mfcva32.dll C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM32, sysov32.dll C:WINDOWS,
javauk.dll C:\WINDOWS, iejc32.dll C:WINDOWS. These files are 4G each and are taking up alot of space on my C drive. I suspect that they are parasitic. I am using Windows XP Professional w/service pk2.
I have AOL as my ISP and only use Google as a search engine. I am on dialup 56k modem. I know this is somewhat antiquated but I can't afford DSL right now since I lost my job and my apartment. The problem I am having is that once I am on the internet for around 5 minutes, it takes longer and longer for pages to load. I'm wondering if AOL has too many customers dialing up on the same line, and they don't want to provide more lines. I also noticed that in the lower lefthand corner where it says web site found, waiting for reply- right before that I see IE PROXY flash. What this IE PROXY is I have no idea. Is it someone spying on me, or maybe I just never noticed it before. I ran Spybot and got 5 entries of something called DSO EXPLOIT which I destroyed, but they popped up again, so I destroyed them again, maybe. I guess my main concern is: How can I get the fastest speed on the internet with what I have to work with, and how can I tell if it is AOL, spyware or something else that is causing the slowness on the internet? Any help would be appreciated.

hey LABEESH, and welcome to Geeks To Go!!

i took a quick prusal over your files there and here is what i found,
sdkoo.dll C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32, -- bad
mfcva32.dll C:WINDOWS\SYSTEM32, -- bad
sysov32.dll C:WINDOWS,-- bad
javauk.dll C:\WINDOWS, -- bad
iejc32.dll C:WINDOWS -- bad
you can go ahead and delete the onces that say bad next to them. to delete these reboot into safe mode by tapping F8 upon startup and selecting using the arrow keys "safemode" hit enter and it will then reboot into safe mode. delte the files specified above and then restart it should go back into normal mode but if it dosent select normal mode thee same way u selected safemode above. hope this helps.

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Please go to the malware forum in my signature and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

Hello Mile Runner. This is malware advice, and you are not allowed to give that. :tazz: If you notice Malware on someone's post, ALL you can do is direct them to the Malware forum, and let a staff member handle it from there.
