Last night one of our pc was infected with at least spysheriff. While trying to fix it I had to transfer files form my work pc (witch has XP Pro installed) to it because the popups where out of hand on the infected pc. Now my work pc won’t load explorer.exe. It says that db8vb.dll is the cause of it. I have no taskbar or desktop icons but I can Ctrl+Alt+Delete my way to the task manager and load cmd.exe. From there I can get around windows just fine and start any file I wish. Any Ideas how to fix this? If you need any more information please let me know.

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

I would start with downloading, updating and running a free trial of Counter Spy:

Don't bother with the free ones like Adaware, you'll just be spinning your wheels.
