Hi,

I really need some help. I have a PC running Windows ME. I get this error message soon after Windows has loaded and displayed my icons. "Explorer
has caused an error in ~5370868374.tmp. Explorer will now close. If you
continue to experience problems, try restarting your computer."

Well, I keep getting this message and restarting my computer, but nothing
helps. I can move the message down at the bottom of the screen and
continue to work. However, if I go online, I get another message saying
User.exe has cause and error.

I have included my Hijack listing. Please help!

Please delete your temporary files. Double Click My Computer (WinXP: Navigate to Start --->My Computer)
You will see an icon representing your harddrive (most likely C: Drive) Right Click on the hard drive icon and click Properties at the
bottom of the fly out window. One the very first tab (General) you will see a button labeled "Disk Cleanup"...click that button.
Make sure the following are checked:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files and
Recycle Bin

Click OK and Disk Cleanup will delete those files for you.

Download the latest version of Ad-Aware from here (if you already have Ad-Aware installed, make sure that it is the latest version and always go online and update it before you run it).

Download Lavasoft's VX2 Cleaner plug-in here
http://updates.ls-se...lvx2cleaner.exe

How to use Lavasoft's VX2 Cleaner plug-in

- Close Ad-Aware 6 build 181 and Ad-Watch (if running)
- Download the free VX2 Cleaner at http://updates.ls-se...lvx2cleaner.exe
- Install the VX2 Cleaner
- Start Ad-Aware 6 build 181
- Go to "Plug-ins"
- Select the VX2 Cleaner plug-in and click "Run Plugin"
- If your computer isn't infected, click "Close".


If your computer is infected

- Select "Clean system"
- Reboot your computer
- Scan your computer with Ad-Aware
- Remove any VX2 objects detected
- Reboot your computer again
- Run a second scan to make sure the files have been removed from your computer

Reboot your PC.

If you would please, rescan with HijackThis and post a fresh log, and let us know how your system's working. <_<

Thank you so much for your help. I did perform the clean up of files. I also found
replies to similar problems posted by other people. I deleted the files that were shown in those replies. My computer is working much better now. I ran another hijackit report and things look good. I am no longer at that location and can not run another scan right now. I will be back at that location this week-end.

I need to run several windows update to secure this PC. The PC uses dial-up, so it
will take me a little while to apply all updates.

Again, thanks for your help.
