    First off, I am posting from another (this) computer because the problem with my computer does not let me get onto the internet. I can go into the other room to access my computer though, to look at error message names, etc. If I have to post things from the errored computer, I would have no problem typing them on this computer. I am patient to get this problem fixed, so that my internet will work. I have a Microsoft, it's a Pionex. (designed for Windows 98/NT, but I have 98). My adapter is a D-Link "DSB-650TX" USB Fast Ethernet Adapter. I have always-on internet (Cox Cable). I use Internet Explorer.

    Upon starting my computer up I have for a long time gotten an error message about my Ethernet Adapter. It states that it has problems working or something and it suggests that I re-set it up or something similar. Note: this message appears when I exactly before I am to enter my password to log into Windows 98.

    This adapter "problem" hasn't really done anything that I have noticed, but I wanted to note it just in case it is related to the other problems.

    A LONG time after the adapter problem, not seeming to related to it, my computer displayed a bunch of error messages relating to "DLL". It cannot find "msnasn1.dll", "DoCEoC16B1", "stlb2.dll", and "E6F1873B.dll". Since these messages have displayed, I have not been able to get onto the internet. The internet loads completely but then when it is about to load the main visual part it displays a standard internet 'cannot load page' or something. It reads "Invalid Syntax Error" at the top of the Internet window and the main visual window suggests something like: Make sure modem is plugged in properly to phone line, or something.

    I think this whole thing may have been caused by something I did a while ago (in between the time the adapter error message first appeared and the first time the DLL error messages started appearing). I had tons of programs running when I would bring up the END TASK screen along with the ones I have now. I always endtasked them so my computer would stop going so slow. I have downloaded spyware stoppers and programs of the like but they did nothing to rid of these programs or the slowness. One day I got extremely frustrated and decided to delete everything that had the word "RUNDLL" in it. After a couple days or weeks my internet would not load due to RUNDLL not working. So I took out of the trash and put it back in. The internet continued to work, then another couple of weeks or a month and the internet didn't work again, with new errors, the ones I have now.

    Since I have had the Adapter Error Message, or maybe before (but anyway, for a LONG time), I have had ALL sorts of programs running, slowing down my computer (such as RUNDLL, realtime, Explorer, Lexpps, Imgicon, Systray, Winampa, Scanregw, Taskmon, Lexbces, Realsched, Rundll32, Tvm, Realevent, Rpcss, RUNDLL, Bpcpost, Iomupdateicons, Wzsepe32). These are the ones I have now, maybe others too when I "End Task" certain ones of these. I used to have much more than this when the internet was working. The RUNDLL ones (usually 3 on at a time in the END TASK list), seem to have appeared when the DLL error messages first started displaying. Wzsepe32 always appears to ask me if I want to END TASK it because it doesn't respond.

    The DLL messages read: "Error Starting Program A required .DLL file, MSASN1.DLL, was not found."(I have to click this MSASN1 error message out 11-13 times before it goes away) "RUNDLL Error loading stlb2.dll One of the library files needed to run this application cannot be found." "RUNDLL Error loading DoCEoC16B1 The system cannot find the file specified." "RUNDLL Error loading E6F1873B.DLL One of the library files needed to run this application cannot be found."

    I use the internet a lot and I cannot do much on my computer without it. I would greatly appreciate some help.

    Thanx, that MSASN1.DLL file is on my computer now and my internet works again!

    The only thing is that it's extremely slow (takes like 5 minutes to load each page).

    Now I probably just need to get rid of ?spyware. I don't know how to do that though. I've tried MANY things, like different types of AdAware-type things, but they sped up my computer just a tiny bit. They always stated that I had like 100 or 120 problems on my computer or I would have to pay a load of money to remove the corruption. One time I did a scan from the internet (like 1 or 2 hours long), the best one which detected like everything, but then it said at the last second that I had to pay $50 to remove it! Could someone maybe help me get this stuff off my computer / get my internet the Cox speed it originally was?

    Your problems "System slowdown, pages don't load / can't be found, etc." could be caused by a virus infection. If you don't have antivirus programs, download and run the free program AVG-7 from http://free.grisoft.com/doc/1/lng/us/tpl/v5.

    If it is not a virus, it could be spyware. These things watch where you browse, and report your activities to their home-sites, and they do not mind changing your browser and email settings if it helps them in their schemes. Go to
    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/
    and download the free program Ad-Aware. You might also try SPYBOT S&D which you can download from
    http://www.lurkhere.com/~nicefiles/index.html
    Each will scan your system for spyware, and allow you to delete any that it finds. Run the removal program in Safe mode. Windows won't let "open" files get changed except by the program that opened them. If the infection is in a file that some program has opened, removing it is a problem. Safe mode bypasses all those start menu programs that open when you boot up, so the infected files probably won't be open, and the infection can be removed. After removal, clear any existing System Restore points, so the infection can't come back. ---911

    Okay, I'll try that now, but it will probably take a little while (scan time, slow web page load).

    By the way I have frequently had my browser settings and internet appearance change 'mysteriously'. I knew it was someone else. And... didn't they illegalize spyware just not too long ago?

    Once you have done all the scanning and clearing up with adaware etc.,go here http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html and download this to its own folder somewhere away from the desktop then post a log back here for analysis ....

    I've just completed the AVG-7 Antivirus scan, which found a virus (40 infected items, trojan stuff). Once in the quarantine, I deleted all the virus things. Was I supposed to delete them though? Or leave them in the quarantine.

    I am starting Ad-Aware (?6) now.

    Most used way is to keep tapping the F8 key while the computer is booting up ....

    It was OK to delete them .....

    The adaware program you should be using is this one available here http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html


    Do not forget to post the hijackthis log I asked you too in post 9 above .......

    When my computer boots up, the error message - A required dll file - wkwbl.dll- was not found. I usually have shut down, sometimes manually, then boot up again and it works. Help!

    Read and try the advice given to Shintan above. If it does not help, I suggest that you should post this as a new thread. Be sure to give details like the make and model of your computer, the op-system, etc.
