    Default RUNDLL Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~3\inetkw.dll

    Hi, I'm posting on behalf of a friend. He is having the persistent error:

    RUNDLL Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~3\inetkw.dll The specified module could not be found

    Also, when he leaves his comp unattended for a time and comes back, it's full of pop-ups of 'a little white box with a big red X'.

    At my advice he has updated windows security to fullest
    Also he has deleted many programs from add/remove progs in control panel
    And deleted cookies
    Also he has run spybot s&d and purged the results

    But previous to my knowledge he had run HijackThis and deleted things it found, without realising that might not be the best idea yet.. I dunno exactly what he deleted, or where this DLL error is coming from, but it was after doing this that the error started. I've heard of this same inetkw.dll problem on sites like this, and all times suggested to post the HijackThis log.

    As a side note, I wonder if the mp3 program iMesh [which he has] might insist on accompanied spyware? Do you recommend not using it?

    Here's his log:

    He may have fixed many things that weren't "broke" using HJT.

    Unless some one else has a better idea, this is what I would do.

    First do a system restore back to a time before he started deleting everything.

    Next download and run THIS<<<< click here
    to remove the peper trojan from your computer ( Remain connected to the internet when you run this uninstall program)

    After this is done follow all the directions given here:

    If he needs to run the HJT program make sure it is run from a permanent folder, not like the temporary is currently using.

    Cheers

    Hi

    This is probably causing the error....

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [inetmgr] C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~3\inetmgr.exe

    This is related to the C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~3\inetkw.dll ... which is a BHO

    AS you can see they load from the same folder...the .dll is missing but the .exe remains

    Fix this with hijackthis :-

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [inetmgr] C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~3\inetmgr.exe


    Then reboot into >>>safe mode<<< Click Here for instructions find and delete :-

    C:\Program Files\INTERNET KEYWORD ... folder

    The other O4 entry is the peper trojan as Basementgeek points out.

    Thanks very much guys! I will have my friend initially try what steamwiz suggested and, if he is still having errors, we will do the system restore, etc, as suggested by Basementgeek. I didn't think he should have deleted so many things without a prof. opinion but with any luck, nothing serious was altered.

    I appreciate the fast assistance. ^^
