I have just purchased a Dell Inspiron 530 with Windows Vista Home premium. It worked fine for two days then when I started it up the following message appears:

"unidentified programme smrs.exe" and I am given the option to accept or decline. If I accept the following message appears " run-time error 330 component 'mswinsck.ocx or one if its dependencies not correctly registered: a file is missing or invalid" appears and the screen goes blank.

If I decline the screen just goes blank.

Can anyone assist with this problem?

Thank you

I have moved your topic from the Windows Startup Programs Database forum to here. The .exe you mention is described as being malware. You will get support for that, best, in this forum.
