the regsvr32 commands worked like a charm!!! MSFT forums responded first and I followed their advice to run SuperAntiSpyware, and that is when all hell broke loose. My computer would crash every time I tried to load SAS, eventually I got a BSOD. the BSOD directed me to a graphic card driver problem. I updated the driver and my computer would behave well for a few days, and then crash. Event viewer showed an error with wbem. The MSFT recommended fix for WMI sounded scary, so i just ran tweaking.com and focused on WMI fixes...that worked very well. My computer would still crash occasionally when unattended, and search would ALWAYS crash it. I finally remembered this post, and did the regsvr32 commands. I have been searching like crazy for the last few days, and my computer behaves perfectly; almost like new. I am still not convinced that my original problem was malware related. i ran several malware/spyware programs and nothing showed up; I am going to post over at the hardware forum to see if anyone else had this problem. Despite the fact that my computer currently perform well, i would like to know what was the original cause to my monitor shutting off.
