When I logon to Earthlink Total Access I get an error "Error in TA Authorization". The description reads " Please check the SharedAuth Value in the Registry to make sure MfuServ.dll is available. There is no MfuServ.dll in the registry.

I don't have a clue what MfuServ.dll is and neither does Earthlink. I've run an sfc /scannow on the system is all seems well. I also done a repair on the Operation System (Microsoft XL) and still have the problem.

Does anyone have a clue what this dll is?

Welcome to BC.

Are you using multiple anti virus, softwares, adwares, fire walls...?

If you googled the MfuServ.dll you would have found this...


At the beginning of the thread it is explained that they have the same error, in their last post they explained how they resolved the issue..."I deleted Symantec Norton Anti Spyware & now my Microsoft AntiSpyware updates."

They were using the Norton anti spyware and the M$ anti spyware at the same time, this caused a conflict resulting in the error message. This is why I was asking if you are using more than one of any of the previously mentioned softwares.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I actually have the same issue on a customer's pc. The post that you reference is not the same problem. His issue was with MS Antispyware not updating and at some point it started a download that referenced two dll's. My customer is not using two antivirus programs. The issue is related to Earthlink's Total access. When you try to connect through dial up everything works fine. Then a dialog box opens that says:
"Error in TA authorization"

After clicking it to close, the next dialog says:

"Please check SharedAuth value in Registry to make sure MfuServ.dll available"

This then closes and the internet connection works fine, (at least in this case). I have been able to find no info on this error or this dll in any of the tech boards I belong to. Not sure if it has been around long enough to have a solution yet.
