going to download a file, Avira AntiVir usually pops up a warning and 'OK', scans and removes 'it' as when playing an online game this time a Windows warning pops up ??? so is it a real Windows warning or not ? why no AntiVir ? shut the power to the computer off restart, Desktop comes up and 2 error msgs wanted a short scan time and used Malware Anti-Malware which found 22 items including 5 files - asycfilt.dll , comcat.dll , msvbvm60.dll , oleaut32.dll , olepro32.dll clicked 'Fix' click CrapCleaner - doesn't work want to see what the dlls are, click Internet Explorer - nothing - 'FOOK !' try chkdsk then sfc / scannow , still no CC no IE find a copy of IE 8 , deletes old version but of course can't connect to internet for up- dates. fooked stop IE 8 install, click IE icon and 'Hallelujah !' IE version 6 loads - and works replace asycfilt.dll , comcat.dll and ? oleaut32.dll , olepro32.dll ? but msvbvm60.dll is missing find and download VBRun60 which gives me the msvbvm60 dll - phew ! CC works and install IE 8 . download and install 'cumulative update' - all after 2 1/2 hours files were listed as 'C:\Program Files\asycfilt.dll (Spyware.OnlineGames)' etc located in the XP Pro Windows/System32 folder so AntiVir didn't delete the 'malware' as I thought it was supposed to be doing, and Malware must have corrupted the dll files when 'fixing' . . .
