I'm a Windowx XP Service Pack 2 person struggled for weeks with the new McAfee Internet Security 6.0 software upgrade. We (McAfee and I) struggled for a week attempting to make the Privacy software work correctly. It appeared to work but caused additional problems so I removed it.

Now it appears I may have removed a SPORDER.dll file also. Computer continually brings up an error stating that it's looking for this file and I need to re-install application, but I don't know which one to re-install.

Plus, it appears after reading about SPORDER.dll that I have lost my internet connection LSP?

What do I do now? How do I figure out how to put SPORDER.dll back on and where?

Create a directory on your hardrive, to save HijackThis.exe, called c:\hijackthis. This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

Download the latest version, from here.

I'm a Windowx XP Service Pack 2 person struggled for weeks with the new McAfee Internet Security 6.0 software upgrade. I am unable to update my antivius software .

Now it appears I may have removed a SPORDER.dll file also. Computer continually brings up an error stating that it's looking for this file and I need to re-install application, but I don't know which one to re-install.

Plus, it appears after reading about SPORDER.dll that I have lost my internet connection LSP? I cant dial up and that darn error wont stop poppiing up!

What do I do now? How do I figure out how to put SPORDER.dll back on and where?


I have the same problem,( that bjglawe has..) I even called Dell they said it is spyware and I would have to pay to have it removed . But i have no clue on which applications to put back on and is it because I updated or can remove all my software and reinstall , would that solve the problem?

And which Spyware and adware removal programs actually the best?

Thank you

Roobeejo

roobeejo:

Are you using these basic programs?
aČ free-a complementary product to antivirus software which is specialized in protection against harmful software. Antivirus software often features an inadequate protection against Trojans, Dialers and Spyware. aČ fills this gap.
Ad-Aware-A good program similar to SpyBot S & D.
Spybot S&D-Detects and removes spyware, of different types, from your computer.
SpywareBlaster-A good program that prevents spyware from being installed on your computer in the first place. This program is always running in the background, protecting your computer. It prevents the installation of bad active X controls found in web pages.
SpywareGuard-A nice compliment to SpywareBlaster. This allows you the option to prevent downloads that contain bad active X controls.

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.

Important:
Please read this tutorial on Spybot S&D before using it. Spybot can do SERIOUS damage, if not used properly.

Then do as Grinler told bjglawe:

Download the latest version of HijackThis (HJT), from here.

Put HijackThis in a Permanent folder:
Click My Computer / C: / File / New / Folder / name the folder; HijackThis
Put HijackThis.exe, in this folder.
This is a mandatory step, for the backup and restore functions, of HijackThis, to be able to work.

I downloaded the new microsoft spyware and scanned my system. It found a spyware called web enhancer, and deleted. Upon rebooting today, I got a error message saying that sponder.dll was missing and must be installed. And all of my Mcafee security also needed to be reinstalled. The spyware knocked everything out. And my CPU usage was running at 100%, so I really couldn't do anything. I rebooted into safe mode, and did a system restore to just when I installed the new software from Microsoft. I'm know good to go. :thumbsup:

My friend is having the same problem as biglawe.
She has DSL and cannont go on the internet.
How do you correct the problem if you can't go on line?
I downloaded the Hijack to a cd. I'm a so so computer
person when you get to this level. I'm thinking that
I can upload this to a directory and make it work.
I need some advice.

Thanks very much

Try running the following application..I'm not going to guarantee it works, but it should:
http://www.cexx.org/LSPFix.exe

Here is the text file that goes with it:
http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.txt

If it doesn't work, you all will need to post a HJT log in the proper forum so the volunteers can help you get on back on track.

groovicus,
Sorry for the spelling error of your name.
The first link you sent me is a dead link.
Any other you have would help.
Thanks
