Hi Scan,

See whether it isn't a bridge problem (bridgedll.exe) on your machine,delete all instances of bridge.dll

Use regedit to premanently remove the row "rundl32.exe "C:\WINNT\system32\bridge.dll,Load" from the registry
folder "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run"

Delete bridge.dll from C:\winnt\system32\folder

So rundll32.exe can be fine, but the association in the registry can be malicious. Do you understand?

Cybersecurity is more of an attitude than anything else. Avast Evangelists.

Use NoScript, a limited user account and a virtual machine and be safe(r)!

Scan please run a Hijack log maybe the problem can be solved, Polonus or somebody can review your Hijack log very carefully and may give you more information on what to do.
