    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Click start/run and type regsvr32 /u C:\WINDOWS\system32\vbsys2.dll into the run box and press the enter key. Note the spaces between the 2 and the forward slash and again between the u and the c.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open. Have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to( if there).

    Fix all 016-DPF entries.

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{004C4D04-42F2-490D-AE25-38D72C216EC4}: NameServer =

    O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\..\{004C4D04-42F2-490D-AE25-38D72C216EC4}: NameServer =

    Only fix the above 017 entries, if they don`t belong to your iSP.

    O21 - SSODL: SystemCheck2 - {54645654-2225-4455-44A1-9F4543D34546} - C:\WINDOWS\system32\vbsys2.dll

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold file(if there).


    Reboot into normal mode and turn system restore back on.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
