My desktop COmputer was hit with a (I think)virus. I have Windows 2000 PRo. It will boot up fine but when it gets to the startup two popups occur.
The first one comes up before any button load and it says:
ViewpointServic.exe has generated errors and will be closed by Windows. You will need to restart thge program An error log is being created
(Program Error in the Gray box above it)- I have recieved this before and it can still work
The Second one says:
The Procedure entry point DnsFree could not be located in the dynamic link library DNSAPI.dll
I am worried about the 2nd because it is from Twain.exe- Entry Point not Found in the little blue box above it
Never have i recieved Twain before
Then my computer will blue screen after a whil and it will say
*** Stop: 0x0000001E (0xC0000005, 0xB78B4B75, 0x00000000, 0x0594D000)
IF it hits a blue screen a second time If i dont unplug my computer it will move really fast out of the blue screen so it has taken multiple times to copy the error message, but usually the second time will show the ***Stop thingy and then after a second 3 lines of words appear under it and it disappears so fast i cant read it.
As you can see I am pretty desperate and need help.
I hope this is detailed enough to solve or at least understand.
I have no time to acess anythign but i can put it in safe mode and everything is all right
People have told me Twain is a scanner file but i have no scanner and i think it is a virus.
