installation, by following Jupiter Jones @ his web site again.

I am having a problem that I did not have on my 2 personal pc's. it
states on #11 on J.Jones site, that I should do this check by typing in the "run" box regsvr32.exe licdll.dll"
& that DllRegisterServer in licdll.dll should show as succeeded- it did But the next step was to type <regsvr32.exe regwizc.dll> in the run

Microsoft has some information on that error that talks about upgrading. See Error Number: 2147746132 (0x80040154).

Do not install SP2 if you suspect any malware present.

I suggest you run AdAware and Spybot Search and Destroy and then post a Hijack This log on the proper forum here.

*AdAware SE: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/

*Spybot S&D: http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

Following that that I suggest you post a “HijackThis” log for expert assistance with your problem.

Read the pinned post in our “HijackThis” forum, here
Carefully read and follow all directions explicitly.

Following instructions run a log, and post it in the appropriate HJT forum, at this link.

Do not as yet attempt to fix anything by yourself using Hijack This.

A member of our HJT Team will analyze your log, make recommendations and offer assistance.

It may take a short period of time to get a response to the log you posted because the members of our HJT Team are kept very busy.
Please be patient as this team is manned by volunteers. They will help you as soon as possible.

Once you have posted your HJT log, please DO NOT make any additional posts in the HJT forum until you get a response from a member of our HJT expert team.

The first criteria they have when looking for logs that need replies are posts showing 0 replies. If you make an additional post, it will show as having 1 reply.
A team member, looking to see if a reply has been made might well assume another HJT Team member is already assisting you and might not open the thread to respond.

So, make your post and wait for a response from a team member.
