guys, what is this? (qjhrycdvibjvf.dll)

Today, I started a glary utilities and a startup manager to turn off some stuff, as my pc started to boot up kinda slow(i have a lot of stuff on it). I turned off some stuff but then i saw something weird and im not sure what it is. Should i turn it off, should i completely remove it, what the hell is this anyway? Here is the picture of startup manager and this thing highlighted: http://oi54.tinypic.com/1e9s2w.jpg

I would uncheck that and run scans with MalwareBytes and SuperAntispyware. That is an entry to register that dll. And a randomly named, unknown dll set to auto-register at startup is highly suspicious. The /s means silent, so no notification will be displayed. A Guy

I agree with A Guy. Will be good to uncheck that.

I would also upload the dll to Virus Total, and see what the scan results say.

This qjhrycdvibjvf.dll is in deed rogue. Normal dlls won't have this kind of name that looks so random and weird. I agree with the others, you should disable it on the Startup entries and do some malware scans with Malwarebytes. It is malicious cause its very often for malware objects to have weird or random names.

However, what some better experienced people would try to do is manually locate this qjhrycdvibjvf.dll, rename it and delete it. However a malware scan would be better of to do so you can locate other rogue stuff that's linked to this problem.

It is in C:\Windows\system32\ per his picture. I'd suspect it has companions as well. I'd be scanning with everything I have. The Standalone System Sweeper run from a CD or USB would be a wise choice as well. A Guy

Some security apps will also use this technique to rename certain files as an attempt for self protection. Malware Defender(the legit HIPS) is one that comes to mind.

Anyway, I turned this off, everything works, and Windows boot up a little bit faster. I tried to look for this file in system32 but i didn't find anything(show hidden files is on). I'm gonna try to scan it one day, although i don't really care even if it's malware. Everything works fine, and if one day stops working, i'm gonna format the disk.

You don't care if it's malware? You're not going to make a full scan of your system and just let it sit?

That's a dangerously careless attitude.

What if this is a Trojan that uploads your personal data to some online thief? Or a keylogger capturing everything you enter on your banking website etc.?

It takes a couple minutes to download and install MalwareBytes' Anti-Malware and run a full scan. Just do it.
