C:\Program Files\Common Files\Services\iThemes.dll is not a valid Win32 Application

I check the Folder location, there's not any DLL there.

ithemes.dll file sounds more like an infection, because that is not in the normal configuration setup for themes in Windows.

 

The normal theme configuration in Windows are files such as shell32.dll, themeui.dll, uxinit.dll, and so on...

 

I suggest for you to post about this in Am I Infected? What do I do? forum.

My advice would be to check with the infection forums make sure you're clean there, and then run the system fil checker and replace any files you may have corrupted/damaged. If no joy there you could always do an in-place windows reinstall but keep the data. Additionally if you have a backup-imaging plan you can always go back to a previous image before any infection or corruption took place.

Mod Edit:  Merged topics, moved topic to Am I Infected forum - Hamluis.

 

This is a continuation of this Post

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/633070/ithemesdll-gone-cannot-start-themes/

 

The original "Ithemes" were deleted by a Malware scan, probably indeed a virus

I'm thinking of modifying it with the normal dependencies but i don't know what it is.

What malware scan was used... can you post a log for reference? There are advisors here who know how to read it.

 

Once the malware (if any) is cleared, then you can proceed with tech troubleshooting, as doing the process backwards is pointless, because the malware can easily reinstall itself. We must make sure that is gone first. Many malware that attempt to fake system files and fake Windows Services are usually in the trojan or rootkit family, I have learned, but I am not a trained specialist in this area.

 

Let us know if you have a log and also wait for an advisor for further instruction. :)

Go to Registry Editor: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\Themes (just as your attached file at #8)

 

Delete the "DependOnService" item and reboot the computer, then problem solved.
