HI,

I hope someone can help. I bought a copy of spyware doctor and it flashes up an error message when it scans which reads:

Error in dll. Scan_Start: Invalid data type for 'showLOMControl'

It displays this error when trying to scan Windows\system32\mswsock.dll. I also bought a copy of wintasks 5 and SpeedUpMyPC which cannot run as when they start up they crash. The error messages are:

TMainForm::Timer1,Timer:1241:, PFiller::update:1108:, PSyProbe::update:966,PSysProbe::update823:,Invalid_data_type for 'showLOMControl'

and

PsysProbe::update,section8, Invalid data type for 'ShowLOMControl'

When i try and manually delete mswsock.dll it says cannot delete invalid data type. I'm pretty sure this is some kind of nasty. I would be greatfull for any help anyone can give me to get rid of this file or replace it with an authentic file. My hijack this log follows.

Thanks again

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order in which they are mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes.

Step #1

Scan again with HijackThis and check the following items:
O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [ShowLOMControl] 
After checking these items, close all browser windows except HijackThis and click "Fix checked".

Then reboot your computer.

Step #2

Go to Start > Run - type:

regedit

Click OK.

When you get into the registry, on the leftside, click to highlight My Computer at the top. Then go up to "File > Export" Make sure in that window there is a tick next to "All" under Export Branch. Leave the "Save As Type" as "Registration Files", then save it as backup to a convenient location. Remember where you put it (I don't recommend putting it on the desktop) This is so the registry can be restored to this point should anything be deleted by accident or something else happens. It may take a minute. Just let it go until it's done.

Now...

To resolve this issue, goto the 'start menu' and goto 'run'. Type in 'regedit' and press 'ok'. The Registry Editor will load. It is important that you follow these instructions as they are written since deleting the wrong thing can have serious implications on your computer. On the left you will have a group of directories, and on the right a window which displays what registry keys are in that particular registry directory. Proceed to goto 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE' and expand it by clicking on the '+' symbol. Go to the 'Software' directory and then to 'Microsoft', then to 'Windows' and then to 'CurrentVersion', and finally to the 'Run' directory. You should now be at the below directory:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Locate the DWORD directory entry marked in blue which is causing this issue and proceed to delete by highlighting and pressing the delete key.

WinTasks should now work as normal without any errors.
