Someone else made a post regarding this, but it was several weeks ago. Ive never written on a forum, so im not sure of the etiquette.

I wasnt sure how long it is until a post is considered inactive. I posted on that as a reply as well, so if it caused any problems, I

am sorry. I did look at the rules post, but didnt see anything about that.

This is my problem:
The problem started after my computer was infected with SpyFalcon... using the steps on bleepingcomputer.com, i managed to rid my

computer of it. However, in my pre-frustration and paranoia of all temp folders, I deleted all of the files in c:\windows\temp...

Now, I am receiving Internet Explorer Script Error messages every few minutes, regardless of the site I am on, and even if there are no

programs running (even in the background)...

What the Message Says:
An error has occurred in the script on this page.

Line 11
Char 1
Error object expected
Code 0
URL file:///c:/windows/temp/NDrXXX.tmp.html

If I click yes, or no, (if i want to continue running scripts), it makes no difference. I wrote NDrXXX because the letters are always


What I have tried:
- restored all of my internet explorer options to default, and disabled error messages
- installed internet explorer 7.0 BETA
- running panda scan, adaware, norton antivirus, microsoft defender (which found winlogon.exe (in my documents))
- lowered resulution and colour quality
- downloaded all new updates
- reinstalled many new programs
- cursing at my computer

Unfortunately, nothing has worked.

Also, i think this might be connected... every so often, since the script error problem occurred, I also received error messages

regarding ActiveX controls... it claims that ActiveX is trying to download, but that it is unable to because of security settings.
However, even if i adjust the settings in internet explorer, i get this same error... even if no programs are running.

My Specs:
I have a one year old fairly fast Dell computer, which came preloaded with windows XP Home... I use Norton Antivirus 2005 AntiSpyware

edition, which is also my firewall.

Any help would be (greatly) appreciated!!

Sorry no one got back to ya!

It sounds to me like you might still be infected with something. Rarely does a computer have only one infection.

To find out for sure, I would like to refer you to the Highjack This (HJT) forum here at BleepingComputer.com:

First: Read the Preparation Guide found HERE. It is very important that you follow ALL of the instructions found within. (There are many important steps in this guide that may clean your computer.)

Second: Post your system information along with a brief description of the problems you are having, and your HJT log in the HJT forum found HERE.

NOTE: Please, after you post your HJT log DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post there will be 1 reply. The team member glancing over the replies might think someone is already helping you out and will not respond. So, just make your post and let it sit there until a team member responds. The volunteers who work that forum are very busy, so please be patient and wait. It can sometimes take a few days for a response. If after 5 days you still have gotten no response, then post a link to your HJT log HERE.

Third: If, after finishing your work with the folks at the HJT forum you have issues with XP related to the removal of the infection, then come back in here and let us help you get your computer back to normal.

You are in good hands! Good luck!

Currently home chillin' with the fam and my two dogs!
