This sounds like a classic case of spyware in your computer. you need to install an anti virus spyware package, e.g. norton antivirus. once installed run an anti virus scan and spyware scan it should solve your problem.

You are still infected, there are several viruses that behave how you describe. The best solution , since you don't know what you're dealing with, is to do a complete reinstall. And next time use a better antivirus.

Hi I am Farah, and as I wanted to download java , it came thet" " is not valid win 32 application'. What shoudl I do? Thx


It is possible that you are attempting to install a 64-bit version of Java when you have a 32-bit operating system. Check your operating and confirm this. In Vista you can find this using Start > Control Panel > System. This is similar if you have Windows 7. Here is what it looks like:

If after that you, you follow these instructions from Sun (Java) to locate and install the 32-bit version.


Error: x64.exe not a valid Win32 application This article applies to:
  • Platform(s): Windows 7, Vista, Windows XP, Windows 2000, Windows 2003
  • Browser(s): Internet Explorer, Firefox, Mozilla 1.4+
  • Java version(s): 6.0
SYMPTOMS

While trying to install Java a user gets an error message similar to:
' ... x64.exe not a valid Win32 application'


CAUSE

The error message is a result of trying to install a 64-bit version of Java on a 32-bit operating system.
SOLUTION

User needs to install a 32-bit version of Java software, since a 64-bit version is not compatible with their 32-bit operating system.

Follow these steps to download 32-bit Java
  1. Go to Manual download
  2. Click Windows XP/Vista/2000/2003/2008 Online.
  3. The File Download dialog box appears.
  4. Choose the folder location.
  5. (Save the file to a known location on your computer, for example, to your desktop).
  6. Click Save.
  7. Close all applications including the browser.
  8. Double-click on the saved file icon to start the installation process.

How to uninstall the software counter feiting


To get rid of the WGA notification that intends to remind you that your Windows is not validated, you can buy a validly licensed copy of genuine Microsoft Windows.
Update: Bypass WGA Validation and Disable WGA Notifications Warning Message
First Method :
Launch Windows Task Manager.
End wgatray.exe process in Task Manager.
Restart Windows XP in Safe Mode.
Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32.
Delete WgaTray.exe from c:\Windows\System32\dllcache.
Launch RegEdit.
Browse to the following location:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\
Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon\Notify
Delete the folder ‘WgaLogon’ and all its contents
Reboot Windows XP.
Note: With this method, you may be prompted to install WGA Notifications again which can still be unselected.
Second Method :
Note: Again, you may be prompted again to install WGA Notification, so it must be bypassed.
Third Method :
By disabling and renaming the files “WgaLogon.dll” and “WgaTray.exe” in C:\WINDOWS\system32 folder by using the program Unlocker seems to get rid of all the nags/popups.
Fourth Method :
Clear the contents or create a new empty data.dat for WGA, and make data.dat Read-Only and Hidden as detailed here.
The following step basically is the same with the above data.dat method, only different is that you no need to create any file in the WGA data folder:
Launch Windows Explorer and go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Windows Genuine Advantage\data
Go to Tools -> Folder Option -> View.
Select (click) Show Hidden Files and Folders option.
Unselect (uncheck) Hide Protected Operating System Files option.
Click OK.
Delete everything in the data folder Or other wise use all methods it will work out.
OR
click on this link http://magicaljellybean.com/keyfinder/old.shtml
go here .. and download keyfinder v 1.51.zip
download that and open
and go to option change windows key
then enter this key
V2C47-MK7JD-3R89F-D2KXW-VPK3J
now
your windows key is now genuine and u’ll not get any such pop ups…..
If still your problem is not solved then search google for the windows genuine advantage validation removal tool and download it and install……That will surely remove the problem…..

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time

I have an Emachine and the disk drive won't work a box pops up and says at the top RunDLL and inside it says Error loading C:Windows/system32/gzmrotate.dll


RunDll is a system file. Error loading C:Windows/System32 is also system files. Just do a repair---not a recovery. The repair option is after you have to hit F8 then choose "R" for repair. This should take care of it. If not it may be your hard drive in which case you would replace it and have to do a full reinstall.
