Is this a Dell PC??? Look here.
hmmmm no, it isn't . . . it's a eMachines 2002 computer with windows home XP.
but i'm not get this error when i start my computer, i'm getting it when i try to search for updates for window's defender.
i don't think i've done anything different to my computer lately . . . i stopped some startup services in msconfig like 2 weeks ago and run malwarebyte's trojan removal program, as well as installed a "ghost" drive so that i could play games without putting the CD in the cd-rom drive, but that was like 2 months ago now . . .
not sure what to do here.
