It seems your system may be infected with a worm.

Download and install:  HiJackThis.

(Always create a Folder for HiJackThis anywhere but your Temp/Temporary Internet Folders or Desktop. A good place to make a folder would be in My Documents, as this is where it will save the backup files needed if there's a problem.)

Then doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Do A System Scan And Save Log". Make sure all Windows and Browsers are closed.
When the scan is finished, best to save your text file in the same folder as where you put HiJackthis.

Create a New Topic in Security & Viruses Forum and Copy/Paste the info from your saved Hijackthis log file into your new topic.

Your problem is like mine. I am not an expert and I may be wrong. I got "dl.exe"  when using mobile phone WAP connected on my laptop at speed of 9.6kbs. There was this pop up from www.reg-fix.com which kept on warning about spywares and my system registry.

You will  correct this problem as follow:

Go to start, then find files and folders and search "dl.exe", once you have found the file right click the file "dl", select and click "open with" but do not open, then you see folders in C and two of the file are called "dl" of which one is a dos file. delete both, restart the system and you are back in business. It will work.

Actually found out it came from my roommate's computer the next day, he got it from helping someone's computer.  When he hooked it up to repair it, it put the virus which was a worm on his computer and then it spread to mine thru our network since we are networked together, sorry been busy and haven't been home lately.  Appreciate the help, and i did get it fixed.  Keep up the great work you guys do.
