A Google search for "ssqQgDtr.dll" brought up nothing. When you don't get
any hits for a file name on Google, chances are high that it is a malware
file. Either you uninstalled the malware program or your
antivirus/antispyware program did. In any case, a reference was left to the
file in Startup. You can remove the reference by managing your Startup.

Because you had one piece of malware, the chances are also high that you had
others. It would be a good idea to scan. I recommend downloading and
installing MalwareBytes' Antimalware (MBAM) from
http://www.malwarebytes.org. The program is free. (There is a paid version
but you don't need to buy it to remove malware.)

Manage Startup:

Start Orb>Search box>type: msconfig and when it appears in the Results box
above, right-click and choose "Run as Administrator".

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation,
type the password, or click Continue. Then see what is on the Startup tab.
You don't need to restart immediately, but the next time you do you'll get
a dialog saying you've used the Utility. Usually in Vista this will be
blocked by Windows Defender and you'll need to allow it so you can then
tick the box that says in effect, "don't bother me about this again".

The free Autoruns program is very useful for managing your Startup -

Probably this problem has been resolved but I would like to make some
comments anyway.

Note that "C:/users/NAME~1/AppData/local/temp" is a temporary directory. I
think it is probable that the problem is simply the result of a mistake. If
it were malware then it is not very good since it would be detected so
easily. Malware would be quite ineffective if it were so obvious.

It is certainly best to be sure, so doing what was suggested previously
would be worthwhile and would only require your time.

It would only be this obvious when it is broken - maybe this is a
result of incomplete removal of something more sophisicated than
you imagine.

When I say obvious, I agree that it might not be obvious to non-technical
users. It is likely to be obvious to technical people, especially those
eager to catch stuff like that.

Certainly it might be "incomplete removal of something" but if so then that
would likely not be the result of malware; malware would not remove itself.
If it is the result of malware installing itself then that is the type of
thing that would be obvious to technical people looking for stuff such as
that.

Not if it was stealthed while the malware was active. Well...you
would have to be a very good technical person to be able to see
a sophisticated rootkit.

Obviously, which is why I suggested no such thing.

It could be just one facet of the malware - maybe some guardian program
to assure other aspects are up-and-running (who knows?).

Just because it is obvious now does not mean it would be obvious while
the malware was fully operational. A new malware could utilize several
guardian programs using several loading methods and a user could use
a removal program (or manual method) for an older version which didn't
'know' about this particular loading method.

Malware that had evidence as obvious as the one being discussed would not be
a sophisticated root kit.

We are at the point of repeating ourselves, so I will likely not respond
again in this thread. You can make a final comment; I assume you need to do
that.
