Hello,

 

Let me start off by saying I am new to this forum (first post) and not technologically inclined AT ALL, but my new years resolution was to immerse myself in things that I do not fully understand so here I am :)

 

Alright... so my computer has been moving mega slow (start-up is slow, freezing when watching things online) so I initially ran a complete system scan using my free Avast Antivirus software, and sure enough threats were detected. I was prompted to run a 'boot-time scan' which is currently under way (i'm using my netbook to write this). I have been writing down some of the infections coming up and researching them for more details, and this forum is where I have ended up.

 

Some if the infections that are coming up are as follows:

 

     -WIN32:PUP's (oneclickdown-A/searchprotect-A/installer-K)

     -DLL error 42127 (CAB archive is corrupted)

     -CAB error 42144 (OLE archive is corrupted)

     -NSIS:oneclick-D [pup]

 

I would like assistance understanding ...

 

     -what these infections are??

     -How do I determine whether to repair vs. delete ??

Hello, the 2 PUPs(Potentially Unwanted Programs) can go.

 

These we need to know your Operating System an the full path to them.

 

  -DLL error 42127 (CAB archive is corrupted)

     -CAB error 42144 (OLE archive is corrupted)

 

Example:

 C:\WINDOWS\Temp\_avast_\unp37475553.tmp|>wm10l\wmp.dll Error 42127 {CAB archive is corrupted.}
 


How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
