Hello everyone,
I have an HP laptop running Windows 7 64-bit

My daughter was playing Roblox on my Windows notebook. She said while she was playing, she got an error message. Then after that, I cannot open ANY program without getting an error like this:

The procedure entry point_onexit could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll

So figuring it might be some sort of malware issue (I'm really not sure), I thought I would go on my other laptop, download Malwarebytes, burn it onto a CD and then run it from my infected laptop. But when I try to open the CD on my infected laptop, I get this message:

The procedure entry point wcschr could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll

Any help is greatly appreciated. I do not even know if running Malwarebytes is the most effective thing to do right now; it is just the only thing I could think of doing. I have not rebooted my computer- I'm afraid if I turn it off what might happen on boot up. Thank you in advance.

Unfortunately running the scan did not fix the problem. I received the message that "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations". But the problem still persists.

 

Do you think a system restore would work? Any other ideas?

 

Thank you in advance.

I can't discuss System Restore, since I don't ever use it or rely on it.

 

When you're in a large body of water and can't swim...I tend to think anything reasonable...is worth a try.
