    A couple months ago I accidentally downloaded or installed a toolbar and I thought I had gotten rid of it, but I think there are still some files on my computer that I can't find or don't know enough about to get rid of. One of those files is bridge.dll, because everytime I restart my computer, I get an error message saying that bridge.dll cannot load, but I don't know how to get rid of it. I also found out this morning that I had been infected with SecThought.E which has since been removed, but I'd like to make sure.
    Could you please help me figure out what I can safely remove and what I should keep? I would appreciate it!

    (I use Ad-Aware and AVG 6)

    Hello Scoopgilr,
    i moved your thread to this adware/hijack removal forum for experts review, as i did not see if you're a TDS user as well?

    You posted in that forum, but i did not see it in your HJT file so guessed you don't use it, as you just confirmed.
    Waiting for experts to look into your file!

    O2 - BHO: (no name) - {42509BE2-5E2D-3464-0BE2-BBC1EBEDD9F0} - C:\PROGRA~1\SECTAT~1\1 cash.dll (file missing)

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunDLL] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\bridge.dll",Load

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\PROGRAM FILES\AUTOUPDATER <= entire folder

    That should do it.

    Regards,

    Pieter
