you can run a scan and it will show you the error and it will remove it for free

jefe323 I did download the malwarebytes and I like it ! It is a keeper ! Both maleware & Ad-Aware have found homes on my computer . As good as they are , fact is , the box remains . Let me tell ya this , at the top of the box it states "there was a problem starting" and at the bottom it states "the specified module coud not be found" Any help ?

have you tried booting into safe mode? does the problem still exist in safe mode?

I tried booting into safe mode wth networking I believe it was . I couldn't get out of that fast enough ! My moniter looked as if I were in 300 percent magnification mode and also in windows xp . Needless to say it done nothing !!!

August 11, 2010 7:21:47 PM

No not that I seen . I was a little nervous of the whole look of it for one . Not to mention It was hard trying to get any where being that magnified looking like i was in the world of xp ..

jefe323- Took your advice , much less nerve racking experiance knowing what to expect because of your advice . I seen no signs of errors and I ran malewarebytes and CCleaner , but with no luck the thing that wouldn't leave is still there !

download Advanced System care from Iobit.com and once installed and opened. Locate the "Utilities" area and then run the disc doctor. See if it finds any errors.

Best solution

The file in question has been removed from the hard drive but still has one or more registry entries.

run regedit. Click on the verry first entry on the left side. Then press ctrl+f (Find). When asked for what to search for enter f3scrctr.dll then click on find next. Delete any keys (Right hand side only) found. Keep searching for the entry untill none are found.

Thankyou for the info. I did run regedit , I found nothing on the left side that i could click onto , and nothing that ctrl+f would take hold of did I do something wrong ?

daship- Thankyou for your reply , I would have swore your suggestion was going to work it just had that look and feel to it . But there was nothing associated with that box under the start up tab or even under the general tab . The box from hell lives on , it's literaly giving me nightmares . Thanks for replying !

jefe323- I'm getting conflicting instructions on how to boot into safe mode . One is to shut down the computer , turn it back on and start hitting the F12 button multiple times (only worked a couple of times) . Now I see another method for windows 7 called the F8 method , basically the same thing only as you may be able to guess , pushing the F8 key multiple times . My computer DID NOT like that ! Do you know of a good solid safe way to get into safe mode ?
