I'm helping a friend fix his computer. He's got a WinXP Professional machine, and he's getting the recurring "missing sporder.dll file" error message, and no internet access. I've read some of the messages here, so I downloaded the lspfix file, and ran it on his computer. This is the list of files the program came up with in the left pane:
I did not remove any files yet. I came home and did searches on each of the files, and as far as I can tell, they are legitimate - but I'm hoping you can confirm this. I have just downloaded the HijackThis program, and have an appointment to go back over to his house and work on his computer again tomorrow. I'll add the HijackThis file onto this thread once I come back from there.
Another problem we've encountered, is that his computer desperately wants several files that were apparently part of McAfee Internet Security Suite 7.0. He uninstalled that program, but the computer is still looking for those files. We tried to reinstall the program today and it will not allow us to.
Any advice you can offer will be welcome.
