    Hi Guys, was wondering if you could help me, I have a problem with my machine, basically I thiought I had caught a virus, and was getting three Application errors on boot up, my wife contacted those wonderful guys at Spywareinfo.com, and a guy called Nasdaq could not have been more helpful, he found past traces of vundo and Sbot infections and through various processes cleaned the machine, however when it came to the boot up errors, although he managed to stop them on boot up, I still can't use the programs

    The errors all have the same number and when checking with Microsoft, could find no record of this number, however when googling it, came up with your web site, it appears you have successfully sorted this out on someone elses machine, and I was hoping you could do the same with mine, any help would be greatly appreciated

    error message is "The application failed to initalize properly (0xc0150004). Click on ok to terminate the aplication", and the errors are on the following programs

    MSACUI.exe (Defender)
    MSMSGS.exe (Messenger)
    WMPNSCFG.exe (Media Player)

    and to make matters worse, have just discovered that Nero no longer works either

    Will post hijackthis log immediatly after this post, many thanks in advance
