Hi,

My uncle is having a little touble with his PC. I Think he has virus/spyware/malware, whatever you want to call it. He has XP. He not that knowledgeable about computers, so he asked for my help. I told him he made a mistake, and should of got a tech's help. I have some knowledge, but can't figure this out. He get the following error when he tries to run HP Photo & Imaging software:

hpqthb08.exe - unable to locate component

The application has failed to start because hpqmfc09.dll was not found. To fix try reinstalling your software.


So this is what I have done so far. I uninstalled the printer/software and reinstalled and still get the same message. So I disabled system restore, booted to safe mode and ran a few scans using AVG, Superantispyware, Malwarebytes, Spybot search & destroy, and Ad-Aware. Superantispyware and malwarebytes found a couple hundred threats which I have delete/quarentine. Only one that I really notice/stood out was WebSearch. Booted up normally and reinstalled HP Photo & Imaging software, still get same error. Downloaded Hijackthis and ran a scan. Came here and registered. Hope someone can help. Here's my log.
