HI, I've recently joined as I also have the system32/wowfx.dll problem. I can operate the PC at present. Have run Norton 360 and Regcure neither of which recognise the problem, although Norton reported Downloadfer.MisleadApp and one or two spyware things as fixes.

Unfortunately, I'm not too clever on PC' problem solving so any help will be appreciated.

Hi Keith Banner

Click here to download HJTInstall.exe
  • Save HJTInstall.exe to your desktop.
  • Doubleclick on the HJTInstall.exe icon on your desktop.
  • By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
  • Click on Install.
  • It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
  • Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
  • Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
  • Click on "Edit > Select All" then click on "Edit > Copy" to copy the entire contents of the log.
  • Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply.
  • DO NOT use the AnalyseThis button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
  • DO NOT have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
