Hi, there. I am desperately looking for help!!!!!!!!

I couldn't open a lot of my applications, it always says "Windows cannot find '*(whatever I am trying to open, e.g. MSN, realplay,IE etc). exe'. Even when I try to open control panel, it says 'Windows cannot find rundll32.exe'.

It seems is kind of spyware,. ;) I have download some spyware removers, but when I couldn't run them, error message will pop up again says 'Window cannot find C:\Document and Setting\..\..\noadware.exe" (I have downloaded noadware, pcOrion and Xoftspy415_102, but none of them works)

Much appreciated for your help!!!!!!!!! :tazz:

Try this, though it may not work in your particular case, it won't do any harm either: Download the FIXWEN.INF file from here:

When you have it, right-click it and choose 'install' from the menu.
Reboot your PC when it's finished installing.

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!! It works. I can now use XoftSpy and PcOrion to scan my PC. Not surprisingly there are number of threats founded, but my PC seems runnning without any problem. Do I still need to either i) format the harddisk and reintall the operating system or ii) purchase the anti spyware softwares??

Many thanks for your adice!

Appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Run these if you do not have them

You should not need to buy spyware protection, it is unusual to get a piece of spyware the combination of these cannot remove, or you could not remove by consulting the Malware Team

If it is running well leave it without formatting etc
