Can anyone explain to me what this message means?When I try to open my internet through my Earthlink icon I get this message. I can get on the internet by going to explorer but do not have the same options as before. Is this something I can fix or should I just have a computer generated bonfire. Any help with this would be appreciated. As you can probally tell, I am a computer idiot.

Hi srinker and welcome to BC

Win.dll is associated with the Trojan.JS.Seeker. Have you recently removed a virus from your computer?

If you want to remove the error message you can edit your registry as follows:

Click Start, and then click Run. (The Run dialog box appears.)
Type regedit

Then click OK. (The Registry Editor opens.)


Navigate to the key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run


In the right pane, delete these values if they exist:

"win"="regedit -s c:\windows\win.dll"

"@"="regedit -s c:\windows\win.dll"

Exit the Registry Editor.

If not, download and run a-squared Personal or Free. it should remove the registry entry for you.

You may need to uninstall and reinstall your Earthlink software.
