To fix the DMAScheduler problem, I tried installing the Uniblue Registry Booster and scanning as recommended by someoe who posted on CNET on 4/24/10 but it wouldn't scan. Previously we had a Runtime Error '372' message from Malwarebytes' but it didn't pop up after I uninstalled the Malwarebytes Anti-Malware program. We can't get the computer into any safe mode. We can't access our McAfee Total Protection program either.

Can you help us?

Hi jjn -
First the Uniblue Registry Booster program is no use to you (and most people) -
Try doing a System Restore to before this started happening. I would go back at least a day or two before.
Click on Start then Programs (or) All Programs). Click on Accessories then System Tools and finally System Restore.
Also download Microsoft Visual Basic Common Controls from Here

Thank You - :thumbsup:

If system restore doesn't help, download Malwarebytes:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

Important: Rename the downloaded mbam-setup.exe file to something else, to help work
around certain malware that will block it from being run.

Does NOT need to be run in safe mode, it is designed to work best in normal mode.

Choose: 'Perform full scan'.

Sounds like malware, you may have to post in the 'Security, Am I Infected, What do I do', forum.

Avoid registry cleaners, boosters, etc, they may cause rather than solve problems.

What is the full message content re the runtime error?

What is the DMAScheduler problem that you speak of?

Rec'd via PM: <<Failed to load control vbalGrid from vbalsgrid.ocx.>>

I don't really see enough info to determine what the above means, I am moving this thread to the Am I Infected forum, based on the fact that I see many malware possibilities listed among the uncertainties of posts by others.
