Question about Symbol LS 4071 Handheld

3 Answers

Every start up C:\Progra~1\Symantec\S32EVENT1.DLL appears

I can CANCEL or IGNORE it but I want to get rid of it. My DSL is AT&T ever since they changed from Norton to McAfee I have this. They haven't given me any solution. I am using XP. I have also tried two different Registry programs. I have backed up the registry and deleted any Symantec files/programs but it's still there.

I am not 100% sure if you've tried already but its sounds like an un-install of Norton did not complete. You might try nortons web site for an un-installer for the version of norton you had installed.

Hope this helps!

1. Look in your Startup folder - Start-> All Programs -> Startup. If the program is there, you can right click on it and choose delete.

2. If that doesn't work, click Start -> Run and type MSCONFIG in the box and click OK. MSCONFIG will start up. Click on the Startup Tab. Look for the s32event1.dll in the list and uncheck it if you find it there. Click OK and reboot. It may prompt you about "selective startup", just check the box to have it not show you that message.

3. Download and install Windows Defender:
After you install and run it, click on Tools, then Software Explorer.
It will show you a list of Startup Programs. Look for Symantec and click once on each item and see if you can find the s32event1.dll, it will appear in the right hand window next to File Name. If you find it, then click on disable at the lower right hand side.

Hope one of these works for you!

Click on start then run and in the box type "msconfig" without the quotes. Click on OK and it will bring up the system configuration utility. click on the startup tab and uncheck every box you see in there that has to do with symantec and norton and then apply the changes and let the system reboot and see if it still comes up. I think something is still loading automatically and since you already deleted the program this may be another way to get rid of the message.

You have spyware infesting your computer, the mywebsearch browser helper object. Run either Adaware or Spybot Search & Destroy, either should get rid of it for you. If not, please post to this thread and I'll give you a link to manual removal.

M3plugin.dll error

From what I have found it is due to spyware. Here is a forum that has some fixes. Be very careful when making changes to the registry. You could end up worse than you are now.

BTW, you aren't alone. There are over 40 other Fixya users dealing with this issue. Make sure you are using a good antivirus/antispyware program.

I am running XP. I went to RUN - MSCONFIG, then go to START tab. You will find an entry for this DLL. Uncheck to box, choose APPLY, and restart your PC, the nagging pop up on restart should be gone.
