This error message has nothing to do with a virus or spyware. I completely cleaned up my system before posting this message.
I have searched this board and many others and cannot find an answer. There were many questions re: this same problem and some references to the solution on other boards, but I was unable to find the solution due to the thread was closed, or because the Rubber Ducky web page www.malwarebytes is down
Someone by the name of Mark on this BBS did have the start of an answer on another BBS, but I could not find his thread here.
Thanks for any help.
