Welcome to BC "Allthegoodonesweretaken" :thumbsup:

It's a valid tutorial. Address anything you are unsure of or have a problem with here.

One of the HJT team or a Mod with get back with you.

Please realize they are all volunteers and it may take a few minutes.

Hi, ATGOWTaken, and yup, it's for real. Real tough one, in some ways... I was helping someone yesterday with one very similar. Listen, the answer is that you delete the .dll that is listed under 020 with the Killbox. The C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Windows\ Temp folders? Delete them and you Bleep your computer forever. You're right.

I would go into it further, but no, please. I know how to help, but without the HJT log that we both can see and refer to, and knowing this problem always comes with a few others that vary from pC to PC, I can't.

The one I did yesterday? Probably done, but still not completed yet, and that is important. It takes some time, often longer than just scrappin' the current OS load and starting over. Do that, and it's only a few hours. Presto, fresh windows whatever. But doing that causes a lotta extra time on your part, putting all the custom stuff you've done since last reloading a fresh OS. Saving all your data, all your favorites, all your passwords and of course, all your programs and any logs/reports/game scores etc. you have on your present OS load. So, instead we "surgically remove" the bad stuff, completly and then you're good to go. Many steps, sometimes, to avoid bleepin' your computer.

I admire your willingness to do the self-help, but consider maybe postin' yours and let us take a little pressure off. of you. Post a new topic at HJT log analysis section (forum) if you like. Figure 48 hours maybe less. :thumbsup:
