My computer has had some strangeness going on of late, which I thought might be directX related (direct failed to create type errors). However, when I got a strange error while using firefox, a quick google search of the error (only 200 results) showed that spyware is quite likely. I'm thankful for any help you can offer.

Error in question: C:/WINDOWS\SYSTEm32\WS2HELP.dll is not a valid windows image

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer

We apologize for the delay in responding to your request for help. Here at Bleeping Computer we get overwhelmed at times, and we are trying our best to keep up. Please note that your topic was not intentionally overlooked. Our mission is to help everyone in need, but sometimes it takes just a little longer to get to every request for help.

If you have since resolved the original problem you were having, we would appreciate you letting us know. If not please perform the following steps below so we can have a look at the current condition of your machine. If you have not done so, include a description of your problem, along with any steps you may have performed so far.

Upon completing the steps below another staff member will review and take the steps necessary with you to get your machine back in working order clean and free of malware.

If you have already posted a DDS log, please do so again, as your situation may have changed.
Use the 'Add Reply' and add the new log to this thread.


Thanks and again sorry for the delay.

I have since reinstalled my OS completely, so I no longer have an issue to resolve. I realize how busy you all are, and appreciate your willingness to help. Thanks anyway!
