sogidona.dll

When my computer starts up is says:

c:\windows\system32\sogidona.dll
The specified module cannot be found

searching online every says this is malware, trojan and needs to be removed.
Windows Defender and Malicious Software Removal Tool do not remove it.

Is it too new, and do I have to wait for an update?

Hello Barry,

One way to get fuÑther information is to find

sogidona.dll

on your system, and submit the file at one or more of the following sites:

Submit it via the process noted in Windows Defender Help, or here:

Report a possible spyware problem to Microsoft
<http://www.microsoft.com/athome/security/spyware/software/support/reportspyware.mspx>


<http://www.virustotal.com>

<http://virusscan.jotti.org>


It would be a good idea to scan.

I recommend downloading and installing
MalwareBytes' Antimalware (MBAM) and
SUPERAntiSpywaÑe (SAS).

Do a full scan with MalwaÑeBytes' and
SUPERAntiSpywaÑe.

SUPERAntiSpyware
<http://www.superantispyware.com/>

After the software is updated, it is suggested scanning the system in Safe
Mode.

SUPERAntiSpyware just put up a Online Safe Scan at
<http://www.superantispyware.com/onlinescan.html>
if you cannot install and/or run the current SUPERAntiSpyware product due to
an infection.

Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware is another alteÑnative which can be used to scan
and remove trojans, along with other malware such as viruses, worms,
rootkits, dialers and spyware.
<http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php>

Reboot

The programs are free. (There is a paid veÑsion but
you don't need to buy it to remove malware.)

Good luck

When I search for the file on my system, the file cannot be found. so it must
be some other bad file referring to it.
Probably one of the antivirus or anti spy ware programs deleted, but did not
get everything that was referring to it.

This message probably indicates that at some point your system was infected
by malware which included this file. This infection was cleaned, but
incompletely, leaving behind a registry or other startup location reference
which attempts to run this file on startup, but fails, with this error
message.

There are a number of good tools for enumerating the contents of startup
locations on a system. Here's one:

You could run this tool and find the startup reference to this file, and I
believe this tool will allow you to remove it, and eliminate the error
message.
