Virus I have a geebx.dll etc etc that keeps creating itself on my computer. Any ideas how to permanently remove it?? Disabling it doesnt seem to help as it enables itself after rebooting. Also it has kidnapped my system restore so that I cannot restore to an early date.

Re: Virus

This .dll file is a Browser Helper Object (BHO) that runs automatically every time you start your Internet browser. BHOs are not stopped by personal firewalls, because they are identified by the firewall as your browser itself. BHOs are often used by adware and spyware.
Update your Virus scanner.
Get and update Spybot and Adaware.
Download HiJackThis
Restart your computer in safe mode and run Hijackthis.
Delete geebx.dll .
Go to msconfig and see if it is there too, unhook if it is.
Run Virus scan, Spybot and AdAware.
Restart in normal mode,
Let me know how this works for you, if it doesnt we need to take more drastic measures.

IESHIMS.DLL error opening file

This is a Internet Explorer Compatibility Shims, and a part of Windows Internet Explorer developed by Microsoft Corporation. It is basically a system and hidden file, usually located in the "Program Files" subfolder and its usual size is 196,096 bytes. The Ieshims.dll is a 32/64-bit Dynamic Linked Library of code components for a graphics User Interface style application. This process is safe and disabling it is dangerous since programs in your computer need it for working correctly. There is no known risks associated to this file unless it is modified by virus. It can be downloaded from the internet.

Common Causes of ieshims.dll Errors:
a. This file was removed when a program was uninstalled.
b. Overwriting of this file with an older version or with a version that is incompatible with other programs.
c. Incomplete or unsuccessful installation of a program.
d. Corruption of the file due to virus infection or hardware failures.

Caution: Installing / uninstalling software and modifying system components may leave your system registry fragmented with obsolete, corrupted or harmful files.

Despite 3 re installs, my laptop keeps bluescreening after 3 or for days. It keeps deleting dll files Any suggestions?

This sounds like a virus that folows you from install to install, I would suggest the folowing

1) save all the data to an external source

2) do a secure wipe of the full hard drive in the system

you can download the .iso file and burn it to a cd with your favorite cd
burning software

3) re-install the operating system (again, sorry)

4) at this point do not copy anything over from your backup, first verify that the system is stable and doesnt delete dll files and blue-screening, if this is true, continue on, if not, either it is a *very* reselliant virus (possible, not likely though) or you have a hardware issue (i would start with trying a different hard drive, and moving on from there)

however if the system does seem stable, slowly move your old backed up data to your reinstalled operating system, only doing small chunks at a time and making sure it doesnt crash. if at some point it starts showing the symptoms again, it is likely that section of data that was most recently copied that is either corrupted or has a virus.

if all the data copies over and you maintain a stable system, then problem solved!

If you have any questions, please let me know.

There are many possible causes for the error you are getting. try these steps.
  1. Restart your computer unless you've already done so. The ieframe.dll error might be a fluke and a simple restart could clear it up completely.

  2. Install the latest version of Internet Explorer. No matter if you're missing ieframe.dll or if you're receiving a browser error message about it, reinstalling or updating to the latest version of Internet Explorer has resolved many user's issues with ieframe.dll.

  3. Using Visual Basic 6? If so, change the reference for Microsoft Internet Controls from the existing ieframe.dll to shdocvw.ocx. Save your project and then reopen it.

  4. Restart your router, switch, cable/DSL modem and anything else that's used to communicate to the Internet or other computers on your network. There may be an issue in one of these pieces of hardware that a simple restart could solve.

  5. Scan your entire computer for viruses. Sometimes, the ieframe.dll error will show up when your computer is infected with certain kinds of viruses. Use your antivirus software to do a complete system scan for virus infections.

  6. Disable Windows Firewall in Windows XP if you have another firewall installed. Running two firewall applications at the same time can cause problems so if you have a firewall program installed like ZoneAlarm, Norton Personal Firewall, Comodo Firewall, etc., then you should not be running Windows's built-in firewall simultaneously.

    Note: Even if you're positive that the Windows firewall is disabled, check again. Some Microsoft security updates have been known to re-enable the firewall automatically even if you have an existing firewall enabled in another security software program.

  7. Update all non-Microsoft firewall and other security software on your computer. Certain security updates from Microsoft have been known to cause issues with security software from other vendors that those vendors are responsible for resolving. Check their websites for updates or service packs and install any that are available.

    Note: If you're already running a fully updated version of your security software, try uninstalling and then reinstalling the software instead. A clean installation may stop that nagging ieframe.dll error message.

  8. Install any available Windows updates. It is true that some previous updates from Microsoft may actually cause some ieframe.dll errors, but installing more recent updates, especially those to the Windows Update software itself, may help resolve the problem.

  9. Clear the temporary Internet files in Internet Explorer 7. Some ieframe.dll issues may have to do with problems accessing existing temporary Internet files.

  10. Increase the frequency that Internet Explorer 7 checks for new versions of web pages. If the default setting is too infrequent and there are issues with certain pages, you may see ieframe.dll and related errors.

  11. Disable Internet Explorer 7 add-ons one by one. One of your installed add-ons might be causing the ieframe.dll issue. Selectively disabling them will show you which one, if any, is causing problems.

  12. Set Internet Explorer 7 security options back to their default levels. Some programs, even some updates from Microsoft, will sometimes make automatic changes to your Internet Explorer 7 security settings.

    Incorrect or overprotective security settings can sometimes cause ieframe.dll issues. Returning these settings to their default levels may correct your issue.

  13. Move the IE7 Temporary Internet Files Folder to its Default Location in Windows XP. If the Temporary Internet Files folder in Internet Explorer 7 has been moved from its original location, plus both Protected Mode and the Phishing Filter are enabled, the ieframe.dll error will occur.

  14. Disable the Phishing Filter in Internet Explorer 7. This isn't a great long term solution if you don't have another phishing filter installed, but disabling IE7's phishing filter has been known to correct ieframe.dll issues in some situations.

  15. Disable Protected Mode in Internet Explorer 7. The Protected Mode feature in Internet Explorer 7 can, in some very specific situations, be involved in generating an ieframe.dll error message.

Internet won't work and keeps locking up

This could be a range of things. but when you say its blocked it sounds like a firewall is blocking it or some piece of anti-virus software is throughing up a block. McAfee caused a similar problem for me. I would try disabling all anti-virus software.

If this doesnt work I would contact toshiba

I can't get into my folders, applications, etc.


The error message you are getting is a result of a trojan virus that embedds itself in WININET.DLL.

Two simplest solutions:

1. If there is nothing important on the laptop that isn't already backed up, use your Dell install disks to re-install the computer.

2. If you have important files on the drive which are NOT backed up. Take it to a pro, or buy a 2.5" Hard drive enclosure, put your drive in the caddy and connect it to another computer that has an up to date virus scanner. Scan the drive for viruses and allow the virus scanner to clean all virus' it finds.

When that's done copy the files you need to the other computer and then Restore the laptop as per step 1. When it's up and running again, install a good virus scanner, then copy the files back to it from the other PC.

Hope this helps,

Computer got virus...doesnt even run the antivirus software installed

A good virus removal tool called ComboFix may help you. I've used this on several computers to wipe out virus problems and it's been great. This site has instructions on using ComboFix and links to download the tool.

Try this before reformatting your computer. Post a follow-up if you need more help.

My toshiba A85-S107 doesnt detect the internal modem

This is not a virus. It seems like Windows was not installed correctly and you should either do a repair or reformat and reinstall your OS. You can repair by inserting the disk and hitting F8 or F2 and hit repair or just reinstall the system
