hi. My computer has been going unusually slow recently. my firewall says it is turned off and if i click on it, nothing happens. I was hit with an error report window just before and it said the following: Run a DLL as an App has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience. Run a DLL as an app. Somehow, a program running an unknown application extension just doesnt appeal to me. Any help will be appreciated. P.S- there are actually no signs of a virus but for what i have mentioned above. P.P.S-hijcakthis wont open in the same way as the firewall wont. So dont ask me to give you a log unless you know hoe to get it working again.
