My computer keeps re-booting itself continuously. Normal virus scan reveals nothing but the following entry was found with a TDS-3 scan:

Scan Control Dumped @ 13:31:05 21-07-04
RegVal Trace: Suspicious: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
File: SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run [rundll=rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\System32\bridge.dll",Load]

Is it safe to remove this file? Thanks.

Don't remove rundll32.exe!!

Do you get an error while you are booting your computer (bridge.dll = missing or something like that?)

I'm not sure if you may delete this file if you don't get an error.

You may always post a HijackTHis log here.

Downloadlink can be found below. DON'T FIX HIJACKTHIS ENTRIES YOURSELF! HijackThis shows bad, but also GOOD entries who are important for a great running of your system! (Save HJT to a permanent folder, like C:\HJT, double-click to open it, press Scan, press Save Log, save it elsewere. Notepad wil shows up, with your HJT Log inside. Use Ctrl + A to select the whole log, then use Ctrl + C and Ctrl + V to paste it on the board with your next post ;)

Excuse for invading your post haerski.>>>>>>I also checked my XP registry and found one named "Unknown".> It had two items-Always show ext andQuery class store.> And the entry -%systemroot\system32\rundll2.exe%systemroot.>> There were three subkeys- opena ,shell and command.>>Should there be an "Unknown" registry key? Any help or understanding of what this means is a big help. Made my own post, but no one answers.>>Apologize for jumping in on your post haerski, but the words Window XP registry prompted me.>>Good luck on solving your problem.
