I'm encountering dll errors when I try to access Internet Explorer, even though I'm connected to the modem. How do I fix this?


Hello

Does Internet Explorer start or does it fail to load and displays the .dll error message?

Typically, .dll error messages are caused by 1. out of date Operating System, 2. viruses / spyware / malware on the computer that have over-written valid .dll files, 3. a failed program install

Since IE came with the OS, options 1 or 2 are more likely the cause of the problem. And, yes, you can still get viruses / spyware / malware while on a modem.

Make sure your antivirus is up to date and scan your hard drive for viruses (if you do not have an antivirus program - get one for free - search for AVG)

Make sure you have a spyware /malware detection program, update it and scan your system for spyware/malware (free from Microsoft - search for Windows Defender, other companies also offer free personal versions)

Very important - do both steps above, reboot and repeat 3 times. The computer holds the settings from the last 3 successful reboots, called Control Sets, in the Registry. Scanning the current Control Set only cleans it. It does not clean the other sets and viruses /spyware / malware can be re-introduced to your system if you perform a "Last Known Good" boot or use System Restore to restore your system to a previous date.

Preventing Spywares from Entering your System is not that Difficult. You should...


Preventing Spywares from Entering your System is not that Difficult.
You should Never Trust a Pop Up that Says your System is Infected or Anything Like that if it is a Message from your Internet Browser. Following are some of the Thumb Rules that can prevent Spywares from Entering your System:
Stop Visiting Websites that offer Cracked Softwares or Other Illegal Activity.
Do Not Visit Porn Related Websites.
Do not Visit Websites that Generate Unwanted Pop Ups.
DO NOT Click on Any Pop Ups that are Generated by your Internet Browser. (ALWAYS Use the RED X on the Top Right To Close the Pop Up)
Avoid using File Sharing Softwares. If you are using them, use it very carefully and Read the "License Agreement" Before Installing those Softwares, as they may mention about other Softwares that are being installed.
Install a Good Antivirus and Keep it Updated Regularly.
Keep your Windows OS Regularly Updated and if Possible, be sure that Service Pack 2 is installed as it also has a good Pop Up Blocker.
Install a Good Anti Spyware like Ad Aware or Spy Sweeper or Windows Defender and Keep it Updated.
Run a Virus Scan using Antivirus at least Once a Week.
Run a Spyware Scan using Anti Spywares at least Once in every 3 or 4 days (If Possible Every Night Before Turning Computer Off).

Use Mozilla firefox or the google chrome browser for browsing unsafe websites

Install ThreatFire.ThreatFire, features innovative real-time behavioral protection technology that provides powerful standalone protection or the perfect complement to traditional signature-based antivirus programs offers unsurpassed protection against both known and unknown zero-day viruses, worms, trojans, rootkits, buffer overflows, spyware, adware and other malware.

I use xp.. i download a file in internet after that ,everytime i start the computer theres always a virus(i have avira) but cant remove it..


Keep updating avira always and install spyware terminator to check is it spyware or not because avira free version only for virus but there is something like spyware, adaware, malware etc. Just try spyware terminator, update avira and if possible install Comodo firewall and block the unknown applications connecting to internet.

Try cleaning the unnecessary files using ATF cleaner (Simple and good) link below.

Dialog boxes keep popping up saying that "Update manager failed " followedby other related boxes. I cannot get them to go away.


Hi,
If you haven't installed some kind of an update manager then these dialogue boxes are most likely due to adware or spyware on your system.
Try installing an anti-spyware utility an do a full system scan for spyware. There are many spyware utilities available on the internet for free. Do a google search to find a free spyware application.
Hope this is helpful.
