Question about Operating Systems
When i try to open C: or D: a window prompts on the screen asking through which program you want to open ! Also, when i tried to open Internet Explorer, an error prompts -" The procedure entry point InternetGetSecurityInfoBy URLW could not be located in the dynamic link library WININET.dll" What is the reason for this error and what is the solution?
It was functioning absolutely fine till yesterday but suddenly it started showing error. Please guide.
First use a friends computer download firefox. Firfox is a another/better broswer that internet explorer.
Second once firefox is installed download adaware found here --->
http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad_aware_free.php (make sure you get the free version)
run it on a complete scan.
Next after that get malwarebytes ---->
http://www.malwarebytes.org/ (update it before using it)
I am on the track that you have either spyware or a virus but most likely spyware.
for Internet explorer try this only after the above do not fix the problem.
Let me know if any of this works so we can try some other things.

The Windows Defender software constantly scans your computer for threats such as spyware that may slow down your computer or try to steal personal information.
If the software wasn't installed properly or is conflicting with other programs running on your machine, Windows Defender may not work correctly.
To repair the software you either need to download the latest update available for the program, or you need to completely uninstall and reinstall Windows Defender.
Restart your computer's operating system.
Double-click the "Windows Defender" icon in the system tray at the lower-right end of the screen.
Click the question mark icon at the top of the Windows Defender screen and choose "Check for Updates."
Select "Continue" if you are running Windows Vista.
Wait for the updates to finish installing and click "Scan."
Click "Stop Scan" if the problem persists.
Click the question mark icon again and select "Exit Windows Defender."
Click "Yes" to confirm you want to close the software.
Open the "Start" menu screen and select "Control Panel." Select "Uninstall a Program" in Windows 7 or Windows Vista, or instead choose "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows XP.
Click the "Windows Defender" entry and select "Uninstall."
Choose "Yes" and restart the computer after the program is removed.
Navigate to the Windows Defender installation webpage (see Below).
Click "Download" and double-click the Windows Defender installation file when it downloads to your hard drive.
Go through the onscreen installation instructions.
Open the "Start" menu and choose "All Programs."
Select "Windows Defender."
Click "Scan" to start a new scan for malicious software.

Press F8 to continue past the Licensing Agreement.
The next screen should display a prompt asking you if you wish to repair an existing installation. Select your Windows installation (most likely it is the only one) and press R.
This will begin the repair and reinstallation of Windows. The installation will copy files to the hard drive, reboot the system, and then proceed just like a normal installation. Follow the prompts just as you normally would any normal Windows installation.
When the installation completes, you should still be able to access all of your documents and installed programs.
