My computer developed a problem today with a file called advrgwiz.dll. Every time I iniate a program, the message "C:\Windows\system32\advrgwiz.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your System Administrator or software vendor."

I've run Malwarebytes, Glary, Glary Registry utility and Symantec. They all cannot detect a fault. A quick internet search of advrgwiz.dll shows that it's some sort of malware that masquerades under many different names. I'd appreciate any help in removing this infection from my machine.

If you have not installed something recently,as it may me an app not compatible with your OS. (which we do not know)
