A quick google search of xprt6.dll brings up posts about AIM (AOL Instant Messenger) so I assume you have a problem with AIM. Try to reinstall the software and see if the error goes away.

Even if your AIM is working fine the error you are getting is telling you that part of AIM is causing a problem. AIM is free, there is no downside to uninstalling it and then reinstalling it to see if the problem goes away. It may also be you installation of AOL itself is corrupt and you need to uninstall/reinstall.

    Sorry you did not like my first post. Upon further review, xprt6.dll is definitely an AOL related file used by AOL, ICQ and AIM, but has since been used by other types of programs, specifically torrent downloaders like Bittorrent and uTorrent. Here is the full Google search I used:)

    The most pertinent comment explaining your error is copied here:

    What is XPRT6.DLL Error all about?
    Xprt6.dll is a file developed by AOL and used in AOL, ICQ and AIM applications. It also comes in handy with some P2P software, such as BitTorrent. As it is simply external dll file created for optional networking applications such as chatting and files sharing, it is not essential to have it in your computer system.

    Generally, spyware and malware removing applications recognize xprt6.dll as malicious and may at times remove it. As it is not part of the Microsoft-developed dll files, it is quite likely that it will be understood as an unknown file and be discarded. The technical team at is currently reviewing the file and its linking relations for eliminating it’s categorization as malware or spyware.

    Errors related to the xprt6.dll file are mentioned below.

    “Download or repair xprt6.dll”

    Easiest way to handle this error is to uninstall your AOL, ICQ or AIM application and restart the computer. It is most likely that the error would not come up again. Now you can reinstall the applications with no problems.

    “Application failed to start because xprt6.dll was not found”

    There are two ways to solve this error. First, check your system for the dll file by searching for it by using “search” and “all files and folders” option. If the file cannot be found, then visit and download the required dll file and install inside the relevant folder – this is usually the AOL program folder. If this does not work, check to see if you have opened multiple applications possible using the same dll file, such all of your programs provided by AOL. Simply close all the applications and delete the dll file. Upon restarting your computer, the older version of the file will be automatically installed to work with the existing applications.

    As said before, xprt6.dll is only associated with software programs and applications developed by America Online Limited. It is not a mandatory system dll and can be safely ignored without effecting any other applications in your computer.

    The direct link to download a replacement xprt6.dll file from the dll-files website is here:)

    Barring that, please re-post with more specifics as to what files you are trying to open and what programs you are using to open them.

The ordinal 120 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll

iertutil.dll is a dynamic link library used by Internet Explorer. Ordinal 120 refers to something inside the dynamic link library. These errors typically occur when the file is corrupt or there is a version mismatch (eg. IE 9 using iertutil.dll from IE 8). A reinstall of IE should fix this problem

I can,t open my internet explorer

If you are using IE 7/8 you can try to run the program without loading any add-ons to see if one of them is causing the problems. To do this, click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

(You can also load IE without add-ons by clicking START --> RUN and then typing iexplore.exe -extoff)

If those don't work try to re-register IEPROXY.DLL by clicking START --> RUN and typing regsvr32 IEPROXY.DLL and then clicking OK.

When IE dissapears does IExlorer.exe show in the task manager's list of running processes?

Have any toolbars or new sofware been added recently? If so and you are using Win XP you may want to try a system restore to a previous point before the changes were made or uninstall the toolbars completely. Also disabled all Pop-Up blockers to see if that has any effect.clean up ur registry using reginout

Oragon ini virus


The oragon ini is a variant of Taga Lipa Are, not really a virus but more of a nuisance. If affects/changes Internet Explorer, some parts of the Registry, shown in the MSConfig as FS6519.dll.vbs and modifies the Autorun.inf plus a few others.

Like some Pinoy fun "viruses" none of the popular commercially available Anti Virus software can detect or if detected can not remove/repair damages. More often it requires a bit of several steps which needs to be manually done.

Rather than go to a lengthy procedure, please refer to this site, you can try here also and/or to this site . As you can see, this has already been well documented.

Good luck and kind regards.
