    yeah this thing popped up when I started up my system today & I googled & apparently its not a safe thing to have, & it looks complicated to remove, so anyone know a fast easy way to get rid of it? b/c my dry eye is really bad this week & my eyes hurt & Im not in the mood of staring at tiny text on a screen today. Help! :( :scream: :(

    If I remember correctly that error can be a symptom of a computer virus. Have you run a scan lately?

    Yes, that error can occur when a startup file has been corrupted by a virus. Make sure you do a scan.

    You've probably fixed it. That's a good link auntihill posted. Also, try some of the other programs in my PM. It's good to have several, because they all work a bit differently, and to run them about once a week (or if your computer has symptoms).
