So, like many posts I've read, I get the "run a dll as an app" message. But here's where I think I may be different: I'm not so sure I got it due to a virus. The first time it popped up was the first time I captured video via USB from my camera. Ever since then, the only time it pops up is when I do anything with a windows-related media file (.mpg, .avi, etc.) and hence won't play them. Quicktime media launches fine. It also makes Itunes not recognize my ipod.

Now then, if I open a media file and simply move the message to a place not so obvious and wait a while....poof, all is well. I just have to deal with the message. Really annoying.

I'm a noob to this site and have read about the "hijackthis" program so, umm.....please help?

:)

Didn't really see any "fixes" there, just ways of diagnosing the problem. Only thing that seemed to work was the event viewer suggestion. Got lots of error messages there, but no help in fixing them...
