Hello all. I was desperate to get my microsoft office activated and didn't want to pay $150 or more to have a license so I seen that there was a program called kmspico that will "activate" it for you for free....Well, I feel really stupid admitting this...I did research it before I even considered downloading it...As soon as it said "turn of antivirus before downloading" I should have known it was a big NO NO. So, stupid me did that, (turned the AV off) and downloaded it..Well, as it was downloading I noticed it trying to install some crazy malware or possible viruses. So, I hit "cancel" but some stuff got installed anyways =( I ran Avast, malwarebytes, and superantispyware. I did the "complete" scan of the computer on all. On Avast I even did a boot scan and it removed a crap load of crap. I even went in and manually removed stuff that was there through uninstall programs. So, now when I startup my computer I get this DLL error which I will post. The computer overall, seems to be acting, fine, except for when I boot up as I said that error pops up. I was really, truly, hoping I have no choice but ti wipe my computer ans start over... And no, I did not do a restore point which I should have before installing all that junk! I posted my logs in the area of the forum for logs. If you guys need to see them let me know and I will post the link to my post. Thank you everyone, I feel like such an idiot for doing it!! Oh, and kmspico if given the right link to the download, it is "clean" because I did find the REAL version that is clean after downloading and trying to get rid of that junk. Who knows what I was downloading if it was even real or just plain spyware/malware/viruses. Forgot to add I'm on Windows 10!
