  1. [SOLVED] ATL.DLL missing

    I have a problem with the atl.dll file keeps disappearing. I restore the file, register it, then the computer runs great. After I reboot the machine the file is missing again. I have already scanned with MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware multiple times, I have even ran ComboFix. I just cannot figure this out. Someone help please.

    Antivirus

    Run a full scan (of everything) with your antivirus program.
    MalwareBytes isn't an antivirus, nor is SuperAntiSpyware. If you don't have one, please download Avast! Antivirus (the Home version costs nothing) and run with that.
    Edit: Just checked... Avast! Free antivirus (meant for home use) is free.

    Yeah sorry I didn't mention I do have Avast installed. I will try a scan and see if it finds anything. Thanks

    For All who were or are trying to help me with my problem...... I have found the SOLUTION!!! I manually combed through the registry and found an entry that SuperAntiSpyware had made. with in the SuperAntiSpyware.com key there was a list of values that were file names, one of which was atl.dll. I deleted the whole key, Uninstalled SuperAntiSpyware and the ATL.DLL file is here to stay!!!

    Thanks again
