Let's clear your restore points to get rid of any malware hiding out in System Restore.

This will give your system a new start on System Restore, so if something should happen you have a clean restore point to go back to:

1. Turn off System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
Check Turn off System Restore.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

2. Reboot.

3. Turn ON System Restore.
On the Desktop, right-click My Computer.
Click Properties.
Click the System Restore tab.
UN-Check *Turn off System Restore*.
Click Apply, and then click OK.

Then you should be good! Hopefully, it's running better!

Right-click so that you receive the error message.

Go to Start > Run - type in:

msinfo32

Click OK.

Click the "+" next to Software Environment.

Click on Windows Error Reporting.

Scroll down to find the error, highlight it, then hold CTRL + C to copy it, then paste it here.

Did you clear restore points while you were having this problem?

i went to Run and tried msinfo32 and another error jumped up saying the following:
Windows cannot find 'msinfo32'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button, and then click Search.

i cleared the Restore points earlier when u asked me to and then put them back on after a reboot. But the error msg still comes up. :tazz:

It's fine that you cleared restore, as your system has corrupted or missing files and would have had to been that way for a while as we did NOT touch any system files.

Go to Start > Run - type in:

sfc /scannow

*Make sure there is a space between sfc and /

Click OK.

You may be prompted for the XP CD to restore the missing/corrupted files.

Ok, first question...try to remember when you first started having the DLL error, was it directly after my post #21? (just trying to see if we need to unregister any of the bad DLLs).

Then please do this:

Please run full scans with Ad-Aware SE and Spybot-S&D as follows:

Full Ad-Aware Scan
Please download Ad-Aware SE from here:
http://www.majorgeek...ownload506.html
Install Ad-Aware and run it. In the bottom-right hand corner, click "Check for updates now". Click "Connect" to download the newest reference file.

Now we will configure Ad-Aware to perform a full scan. In the Ad-Aware main window, click on the gear icon at the top of the screen to open the preferences window. In the "General" window, make sure the following options are selected:
1) Automatically save log-file
2) Automatically quarantine objects prior to removal
3) Safe Mode (always request confirmation)

Click the "Scanning" button on the left-hand side and make sure the following options are selected:
1) Scan within archives
2) Scan active processes
3) Scan registry
4) Deep scan registry
4) Scan my IE Favorites for banned URLs
5) Scan my Hosts file

Please also click on "Select drives & folders to scan" and select your hard drive(s). Then click the "Advanced" button on the left-hand side and make sure all the options under "Log-file Detail Level" are selected. Next, click the "Tweak" button on the left-hand side. Click on "Scanning Engine" and make sure the following options are selected:
1) Unload recognized processes & modules during scanning
2) Obtain command line of scanned processes
3) Scan registry for all users instead of current user only

Click on "Cleaning Engine" and make sure the following options are selected:
1) Always try to unload modules before deletion
2) During removal, unload Explorer and IE if necessary
3) Let Windows remove files in use at next reboot
4) Delete quarantined objects after restoring

Finally, click on "Safety Settings" and make sure the following options are selected:
1) Automatically select problematic objects in results lists
2) Write-protect system files after repair (Hosts file, etc)

Click on "Proceed" to save the preferences. Then please click the "Start" button on the bottom left side to begin a scan. Select "Use custom scanning options" and then click "Next". Ad-Aware will then scan for malware. When it is finished, make sure any objects listed in RED are selected and click "Next" to remove the objects. Then please restart your computer.

Spybot Full Scan
Open SpyBot, Select "Search for updates" and then select all available updates. Click on the drop-down box in the top center to choose a download location nearest to you. Then click "Download updates". When all updates have downloaded, close Spybot-S&D, and then run it. Click on "Check for problems". When the scan has finished, select any entries listed in red and click "Fix selected problems". Then please restart your computer again.

Post the log from Ad-Aware, and SpyBot if one is produced.

No, i got this DLL error quite a while ago. Before you've been helpin me out. I was just hoping it would be an easy fix. I dont think its a result of a virus or anything because it still came up after we did all that other stuff and my com was clean as a whistle.
Maybe im completely wrong tho...
Should i continue with the above directions?

ps. Sorry for late reply.

Oh, ok so you've had it for a while.

I think I've figured out the problem (hopefully!), you get that error message when you right-click an icon on the desktop... this appears to be applicable:

http://support.micro...om/?kbid=306391

Let me know if that helps any!!

Unfortunately it didnt help because i dont have Corel WordPerfect :tazz:
so i dont think it relates to that. It's no big hassle anyways...

Thankyou for everything that you've helped me with. I'm now more aware and knowledgable about Malware etc. because of your help. My computer is now clean and running fast (found a few files that freed up some space!), and Smitfraud is gone! and its all thanks to you.

If ever i need help again i'll find you,
Thanks Bananafanafo.

You're very welcome! I will continue researching your problem and if I come up with a possible solution I will certainly let you know!

Now I recommend getting Service Pack 2 since your system is clean! Go to http://www.microsoft.com and click on "Windows Update" on the left hand side then click "Express Install" to install latest security updates, including XP Service Pack 2.

Congratulations your log is clean! Great job on the clean up :tazz:

Here are some tips, to reduce the potential for spyware infection in the future, I strongly recommend installing the following applications:

Ewido Security Suite <= Protection against Trojans, Worms, Dialers, Hijackers, Spyware, and Keyloggers.

Detect and Remove Programs:
  • How to use Ad-Aware to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Ad-Aware.
  • How to use Spybot to remove Spyware <= If you suspect that you have spyware installed on your computer, here are instructions on how to download, install and then use Spybot. Similar to Ad-Aware, I strongly recommend both to catch most spyware.
Prevention Programs:
  • Spywareblaster <= SpywareBlaster will prevent spyware from being installed.
  • Spywareguard <= SpywareGuard offers realtime protection from spyware installation attempts.
  • MVPS Hosts file <= The MVPS Hosts file replaces your current HOSTS file with one containing well known ad sites etc. Basically, this prevents your computer from connecting to those sites by redirecting them to 127.0.0.1 which is your local computer
  • Google Toolbar <= Get the free google toolbar to help stop pop up windows.
Other necessary Programs:
  • AntiVirus Program<= An AntiVirus program is a must! Whether it is a free version like AVG or Anti-Vir, or a shareware version like Norton or Kapersky, this is a must have.
  • Firewall<= A firewall is definitely a must have. Two good free versions are Sygate and ZoneAlarm.
