SOURCE: Trojans wont go away. Hijackthis SCAN help

I am of the mind to do a complete reinstall of the operating system including flash the BIOS even if it is the same version. I worked many hours tracking down and thinking you found every part of the problem on to hit an .EXE and it all starts over again....I just clean out everything and start fresh.
If you tell us what make and model of computer along with the operating system it is we can direct you to the drivers for the reinstall. Some off those programs - for example AOL seem to be virus magnets. (if it is a dell it is really simple if you just put in your service code- it give you your particular driver of your computer.)
That is what I would do...Or you can keep hunting.
please leave rating,,,thank you

then press "y"

Let me know if you need more assistance.
Thanks.

I think you're on the right track with the firmware and driver updates, but be careful about your driver and version selection. For instance, I have an old usb Minolta Laser and XP wants to install the driver for the 1200W. Problem is, my unit is a 1250W. It works eventually, but my spooler hangs for a solid three minutes and network jobs always fail... Good luck sir.

Fix kernel dell xp


There are several different ways that kernel.dll errors can show up on your computer. Here are some of the more common ways that you might see kernel.dll errors:
  • "Kernel.dll Not Found"
  • "This application failed to start because kernel.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
  • "Cannot find [PATH]\kernel.dll"
  • "The file kernel.dll is missing."
  • "Cannot start [APPLICATION]. A required component is missing: kernel.dll. Please install [APPLICATION] again."
Kernel.dll error messages might appear while using or installing certain programs, when Windows starts or shuts down, or maybe even during a Windows installation.
The context of the kernel.dll error is an important piece of information that will be helpful while solving the problem.

Cause of Kernell.dll Errors
Kernel.dll errors are caused by situations that lead to the removal or corruption of the kernel DLL file.
In some cases, kernel.dll errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.

How to Fix Kernel.dll Errors
Important: Do not download kernel.dll from a "DLL download" website. There are many reasons why downloading a DLL file is a bad idea. If you need a copy of kernel.dll, it's best to obtain it from its original, legitimate source.
Note: Start Windows in Safe Mode to complete any of the following steps if you're unable to access Windows normally due to the kernel.dll error.
  1. Restore kernel.dll from the Recycle Bin. The easiest possible cause of a "missing" kernel.dll file is that you've mistakenly deleted it.
    If you suspect that you've accidentally deleted kernel.dll but you've already emptied the Recycle Bin, you may be able to recover kernel.dll with a free file recovery program.
    Important: Recovering a deleted copy of kernel.dll with a file recovery program is a smart idea only if you're confident you've deleted the file yourself and that it was working properly before you did that.
  2. Run a virus/malware scan of your entire system. Some kernel.dll errors could be related to a virus or other malware infection on your computer that has damaged the DLL file. It's even possible that the kernel.dll error you're seeing is related to a hostile program that's masquerading as the file.
  3. Use System Restore to undo recent system changes. If you suspect that the kernel.dll error was caused by a change made to an important file or configuration, a System Restore could solve the problem.
  4. Reinstall the program that uses the kernel.dll file. If the kernel.dll DLL error occurs when you use a particular program, reinstalling the program should replace the file.
    Important: Try your best to complete this step. Reinstalling the program that provides the kernel.dll file, if possible, is a likely solution to this DLL error.
  5. Update the drivers for hardware devices that might be related to kernel.dll. If, for example, you're receiving a "The file kernel.dll is missing" error when you play a 3D video game, try updating the drivers for your video card.
    Note: The kernel.dll file may or may not be related to video cards - this was just an example. The key here is to pay very close attention to the context of the error and troubleshoot accordingly.
  6. Roll back a driver to a previously installed version if kernel.dll errors began after updating a particular hardware device's driver.
  7. Run the sfc /scannow System File Checker command to replace a missing or corrupt copy of the kernel.dll file. If this DLL file is provided my Microsoft, the System File Checker tool should restore it.
  8. Install any available Windows updates. Many service packs and other patches replace or update some of the hundreds of Microsoft distributed DLL files on your computer. The kernel.dll file could be included in one of those updates.
  9. Test your memory and then test your hard drive. I've left the majority of hardware troubleshooting to the last step, but your computer's memory and hard drive are easy to test and are the most likely components that might cause kernel.dll errors as they fail.
    If the hardware fails any of your tests, replace the memory or replace the hard drive as soon as possible.
  10. Repair your installation of Windows. If the individual kernel.dll file troubleshooting advice above is unsuccessful, performing a startup repair or repair installation should restore all Windows DLL files to their working versions.
  11. Use a free registry cleaner to repair kernel.dll related issues in the registry. A free registry cleaner program may be able to help by removing invalid kernel.dll registry entries that might be causing the DLL error.
    Important: I rarely recommend the use of registry cleaners. I've included the option here as a "last resort" attempt before the destructive step coming up next.
  12. Perform a clean installation of Windows. A clean install of Windows will erase everything from the hard drive and install a fresh copy of Windows. If none of the steps above correct the kernel.dll error, this should be your next course of action.
    Important: All the information on your hard drive will be erased during a clean install. Make sure you've made the best attempt possible to fix the kernel.dll error using a troubleshooting step prior to this one.
  13. Troubleshoot for a hardware problem if any kernel.dll errors persist. After a clean install of Windows, your DLL problem can only be hardware related.
Applies To
The kernel.dll error message could apply to any program or system that might utilize the file on any of Microsoft's operating systems including Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.

BHO,DLL the application has failed to start on start up


sfc /scannow

will check the consistency of Windows and try to fix it.

To run it, you need to get to an administrative shell window.

For Vista and Windows 7,
Go to start. type "cmd" When "cmd" appears, do a right click and select run as as administrator. When the window appears, type:
sfc /scannow

In XP, just "cmd" and type "sfc /scannow"

Sir when i am open any program in my system error is rise


if possible just uninstall and reinstall Internet Explorer

if this does not work run an SFC scan
  • Insert your windows cd
  • exit from the autorun menu that pops up
  • Start
  • Run
  • SFC /Scannow
You'll see a progress bar, and it will disappear when finished, restart after it finished (can take as much as 20 or 30 minutes). If you have XP MCE, it may ask for disk 2, just click cancel or skip.

finally if it still does not work, download the dll and replace the existing one www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dll-files.shtml?iertutil insrtuctions are on the page.
