My wininet.dll has become infected by W32/Alemod.f.dll. The file cannot be cleaned, quarantined, or deleted by McAfee since it is being used by IE. I downloaded it from http://www.dll-files...s.shtml?wininet and tried to install it over the existing one, but it also will not allow it, again because it is being used. I have not tried booting in safe mode yet as I do not want to risk losing any info on my computer by deleting it if I do not have the right version. I have Win XP SP2.

I also have a white screen coving my backgroup with a URL of file://C:\WINDOWS\warnhp.html All of my icons are on the screen and I can do everything normally, I just have the white screen covering my background and McAfee popping up repeatedly warning me of the Virus.

When doing a check with Adaware, some registry entries came up with AlfaCleaner. I deleted those and also uninstalled AlfaCleaner as it had installed itself.

Any help would be appreciated, I work with computers, but I am a little over my head with this issue. If I need to post logs or anything, plz tell me what you need and how to do it. Thanks.

12:35 pm Just now, AlpahCleaner reinstalled inself, after I uninstalled it last night, no doubt associated with this Virus in some way.
