How to repair this problem res://C%3A%5CProgram%20Files%20(x86)%5Ciolo%5CSystem%20Shield%5Csshtml.dll/OVERVIEW.HTML


It looks like it is trying to display a page called 'overview.html' and not finding it. Sounds highly suspicious to me.

If you want to find it;
Go to 'my computer'
click on 1) C;
2) click Program files(x86)
3) click on Cilo
4) clck on system
5) click on Shield
Look in the directory and there should be a file called sshtml.dll

I have NEVER heard of this 'RTO IOLO System Shield for PC'

From a 40 year veteran of Home Conputers; If I were you, I would REMOVE / DELETE it completely using 'programs and features' in your Control Panel.
You are looking for TWO things to protect your PC 1) Antivurus 2) Anti Malware
Use a REAL antivirus like 'AVIRA ' Or 'AVG' or 'avast' to protect your PC. They are all FREE and VERY reputable to keep your machine virus free.
I would also use. Malwarebytes. here http://www.malwarebytes.org/
A reputable FREE Malware Scanner.
Use both of the above once a week and you will be fine,.
