    I have the same problem, and there is no virus on my system. I have an arsenal of anti-virus progs, and they all give my PC a clean bill of health. It only happens on certain sites. For example, I can't access www.blackberry.com AT ALL with Internet Explorer 8. The sites that are OK are ALWAYS OK, and the sites that produce the 216 error ALWAYS produce the error. There is something on those sites that IE8 doesn't like, but no one seems to have identified it yet - at least as far as I can find by Googling "runtime error 216".

Hi there
your computer is infected with a SubSeven Trojan virus.
Don't bother using Norton as its ****!
I recommend you download "Spybot search and destroy" its a free program and is very good at locating these type of viruses, install the program and run it, also do a Microsoft update to get the patch for Internet explorer security issues

Good luck

Runtime error 216 at 00Cd358


Run time error 216 can cause permanent damage to your operating system if left unrepairable.

Symptoms of Run-time Error 216 This Trojan invades the registry and modifies command files, sometimes with unpredictable results. Some of the common symptoms include:
  • Inability to open some programs such as internet explorer
  • Random CD/DVD drives opening and closing
  • Pop up dialogue boxes appearing randomly
  • Appearance and disappearance of important files
  • Extremely slow downloads
First
  1. Boot to safe mode by pressing the F8 key at start up
  2. Once the system has booted run a good anti virus program to eliminate the Trojan

You will need to also use a good registry cleaner to fix all of the entries that the Trojan modified. Once all that is done, the error should disappear for good.
summary Any time you have a virus, Trojan or other form of malware that causes a noticeable error in system behavior or performance, you should run a manual anti-virus and spy ware scan. Once that is complete, you should run a good registry cleaner to remove all of the damage and left over junk entries these programs can leave behind after they are dead.

How Norton Anti-virus software work


<p>First you have to install any one anti-virus software and make it ready with online update, and then scan your computer with that anti-virus software. Reliable anti-virus software features a scanner equipped with the technology required to detect and eradicate viruses, worms and other members of the malware family.<br /> <p> <br> <p>Viruses have many strategies to infect your computer, like avoiding detection from protection software. To prevent these virus strategies and protect your computer anti-virus software also has some methods, like Norton anti-virus use Signature base and Heuristics-base detection. Signature based detection includes searching for knowing structure within executable code, however your computer can be infected with most new virus which signature is not known. In that case heuristics method can be used. It can identify new viruses by variation of such code, in files.<br> <p> <br> <p>Norton anti-virus has many other features, which it upgrades from version to version, like Sonar protection. SONAR examines the behaviour of applications to decide whether they are malicious. Various things are checked such as if the program create a desktop shortcut or create add/remove programs entry before determining the program is malicious. Another feature is Norton insight. It is a program that comes with the Norton 360. It improves the speed and quality of computer scan. It identifies well known files of client machine and excludes them from constant monitoring and scanning. It only scans unknown and unsecured files. Skipping the already known files helps the scan more impact. Symantec antivirus can interaction with rogue software, actually these type of software are nothing but a misleading program, it always rebranded and cloned of its previous version.<br> <p> <br> <p>Many other anti-viruses have features like anti-virus, anti-malware, anti-spyware which is used to detect and remove viruses from your computer, whenever you scan your pc with this anti-virus software.

Do you have Norton Anti-Virus on your PC.


8 out of 10 computers have Norton Anti-Virus installed on their PC. Or you getting message to tell you to update your subscription? If so read on.

Have you notice that your PC is slowing down, or you getting blue screens, is your PC slow to boot, those your PC shutdown really slow. Are you getting pop-ups stating that your PC is infected. These are all symptoms of an out of date Norton Ant-Virus subscription. Even if you have have a current Norton Anti-Virus subscription you may still be infected.

OK, so here is how to fix your PC. First if you do not want to use Norton Anti-Virus anymore you need to remove it. You need to remove it from the control panel add/remove programs. You also need to get the Norton removal tool from Symantec, which makes Norton Anti-Virus. Watch my video from more details. Click here

So now your PC should be running better than before. Remember once Norton Anti-Virus is removed you need to scan it for viruses and then protect it. I recommend and personal use Avast, it is Free for home users and it simply works. Avast does not slow down your computer and it updates everyday with a visual and audio indicators. What more could you ask for. I use Malwarebyte's Anti-Mal ware on-line protection in conjunction with Avast for total protection. You can get that here. Try the free version first and it will get all those infections that Norton Anti-Virus failed to protect. Then upgrade to the Pro version if you need it. Here is the site http://www.malwarebytes.org/.

So now your PC is virus free and protected. What else can you do. I would get Ccleaner from www.ccleaner.com, this is also a free utility that I use. It removes all those temp files and other junk that is slowing down your PC. I do not recommend any registry programs. If you have any those on your PC. You need to remove them, they do not work.

The last thing you need to get is to de-frag your hard drive. I use this one. It is also Free so get it. Click here.

So now you are done and your PC should be a lot faster and better. However if you are still having issues you need to reload your whole operating system. Most people do not have the original CD so you will have to get a professional to do this. If you need help with that you can visit my site at www.adjustservices.com.

I hope this tip was helpful.

Hello and thank you for using Fixya!

This issue can occur if your computer is infected with a SubSeven Trojan virus (per, Microsoft).

Run a virus scan and rid of all viruses, malware, etc.

If you have a free antivirus, remove it and install a free trial of Kaspersky. This will rid the virus. You can then uninstall Kasperky and install the free one after removal of trojan.

Hope this helps!
