Can someone please help me? On startup, I receive a 'VCMAIN.EXE unable to initialise....' error. I think my PC is pretty ill. I have pop-up issues too. WHenever pop up blocker blocks something, a windows explorer box comes up saying "Click yes to enter now." This happens every 30 seconds or so.
I have run Adaware SE, AVG, AVAST! and CCleaner but to no avail.
Can someone please take me through what I need to do? :thumbsup:
CHEERS!!

Hi ek_phillips

Here is some info regarding that file:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/V....exe-13905.html

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system

Thanks for that!

I have a problem though in section 7 of the hijack this instructions. The file is not in the add/remove programs. I have tried to enter C:\Program Files\SurfSideKick 3\Ssk.exe /u in 'Run' but I get an error -

"Windows cannot find 'c:\Program.' Make sure you typed the name correctly and try again. To search for a file, click the start button and then click search."

I have tried entering the above location in 'Run' several times but to no avail. When I just type "'c:\Program Files", it opens program files as normal.

I have downloaded Hijack this, but have not run a log due to this error message.

Any suggestions??

Ah, i agree that tutorial may be a bit misleading. The fact you get an error message when you try to uninstall SSK is good - it means it's not there :thumbsup:

Just continue and do as much as possible and post the HijackThis log in the appropriate place.

I have split and moved your HJT log from this thread into the HJT forum here.

Please be patient and wait for a reply from a member of the HJT Team.
