infected with sys32.rdvgumd32.dll

Installed a RamDisk last night, moved my IE, Google and Firefox caches over to it. Also my windows Temp files. Since then I cannot open any Office 2010 files. I reverted my settings but the problem remains. I ran RemoveIT pro and it tells me that I have an infected file in C:\\windows\system32\rdvgumd32.dll I searched for that file and found nothing in system32 with that name. I have rdvgumd64.dll

What can I do? I need access to my word and excel files. PLease help.

Thanks
Sam

I'll run that and get the results back to you. I found out the root of my Microsoft Office issue was a registry entry the the old drive letter of a previous RamDisk installation. Fixed that and now Office files open fine, however that program still tells me I am infected so we'll see what ESET says.... more soon

CNET has been bad news for a few months now.
As of two months ago, I will NOT use or send any one to CNET or Download.com any longer!

When you initiate the download,you will encounter a single offer for additional 3rd-party software, which is clearly disclosed and provides the option to accept or decline the offer before proceeding with the download. We only show offers for software that is approved for
listing on CNET Download.com. If you do not wish to use the CNET Installer, we provide a link to the direct HTTP download URL below the main "Download Now" button on the products "detail page" on Download.com. You can access this page by clicking on the product name on your "My Software" page. You will need to be logged in as a CNET member to use this link.

Download.com Caught Adding Malware to Nmap & Other Software

Goal and Demand of this page
After all the bad press, CNET has (at least for now) removed the trojan installer for Nmap. But they could bring it back at any time, and they still infect thousands of other software packages.
My demand is that CNET stop doing this for ALL of the software they distribute, not just those who are able to generate enough bad PR for them.
If Download.com doesn't stop, I plan to continue spreading the word about their reprehensible behavior. You can help by linking to and sharing this page, contacting anyone you know at CNET or Download.com, and of course never using or recommending Download.com to anyone! There are many superior alternatives, including FileHippo, NiNite, and Softpedia. Of course you can download apps from their official sites too!

Thank you both for the links and help. I have been using Trend Micro Titanium antivirus, but I have been hit a few times by viruses and malware. What is my best option for an antivirus/security software, in your opinion. You sent me a link for ESET, would you recommend it? Kapersky? Avast?? Seems like Borton and McAfee are the big players in the market, but are they really that good? I have heard that they are not so great. Opinions??

IMO, go ahead and run Trend Micro till it expires.

Then Uninstalling Titanium 2011 using Trend Micro Diagnostic Toolkit

Either of these two are good for free:
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows
Latest version of Avast Antivirus - Windows 7 Forums

Paid AV, I'd get ESET, Vipre or Norton.
