I'm getting "Error: 34" when I boot my laptop.

  1. :( yes, whenever I log onto my user (or any other) on my laptop, I get a tiny pop-up notice that reads "Error: 34". sometimes it will pop up 2 copies, but recently just one.

    I'm thinking the fact that I can't open my Task Manager through both ctrl+alt+del and right clicking the task bar (which are the only methods I know) is directly related to this.

    I also believe there's some tasks running that are destroying my cpu's speed.


    here's the screenshot... the taskbar thing says "Protection error", and has a logo resembling the aol thing...

    read the posting rules and people will help you.
    We need a HJT log, an anti-virus scan results, and anti-trojan scan results. You need to use at least 3 different types of anti-trojan programs.
    boot in safe mode before running.

    thanks for the warm welcome to the forum... T_T

    I managed to find a friend who had the same problem and he fixed it effortlessly. Thanks for looking, though.
