Hilot/ipacokuvo.dll Leading to Pop-up Web Page
» Is ipacokuvo.dll a legitimate dll? What is it and can I delete it? Using IE, every time I open a window or a tab, Pop-up Web Page window directs me to ad sites that want to set cookies. How can do away with it? Thanks in advance!
You are welcome. When using Hit Malware, there is no need to update prior to running the scanner as it is already up-to-date at the time of download. Spybot is a has been. It is no longer recommended by any techs I know and work with. McAfee isn't a preferred choice for me either.
You need to run additional scans. You may need to perform these actions in safe mode with networking first then again in normal mode. After you have completed each of the scans I recommend you download DLL Suite and scan for issues. This will remove any dll error messages you may receive after removing the malware.
This will not re-introduce the problem and protect your pc against Worm:Win32/Muzkas.B and so on.
DLL Suite allows you to free download any missing or corrupted .dll file, sys files and exe files. Furthermore, it can make up any losses to the operating system because of its three built-in features: fixing exe virus infection, fixing sys file errors and fixing dll file errors. And it is quite easy to use.

I hope you performed a complete/full scan with the Hit Malware.
- THOMAS ONEILL replied on January 3, 2013: » If you have used Hit Malware, or Malwarebytes and still nothing detected it may be necessary to get a little deeper into the files. Uninstall all java applications then reinstall them. Hope this will solve your problem. Please let me know it in time.
- KATHERINE BRANDT replied on January 4, 2013: » After a full scan, Hilot was found and offered to delete its two dll files. That was not effective the first time around. Did the quick scan a second time and it seemed to work. Did a system restore back to a point a week ago.
- ANA NICOLESCU replied on January 7, 2013: » If your computer was infected as Malware reported, chances are the infection will be in your restore points as well. Never use system restore after you have removed an infection unless the restore point was created after the removal of the infection. The only exception to this of course is if the computer becomes inoperable and using a restore point is the only means of getting it up and running. I honestly have no idea what you mean by Did a system restore back to a point a week ago, evidently didn't work as Malwarebytes is still running.
