Operating XP service pack 2 and when signing into Verizon DSL with MSN 9 a warning comes up: Specified Module cannot be found! UNICOWS.DLL

After doing some research it appears that this .DLL is not part of the XP operating system so should not be found.

I am no where near GEEK level. Hence, I am confused as to whether to search for a solution or just call my computer guy at $100. an hour.

Can anyone give me some tips?
