    Do you run a virus scan/cleaning right before this started happening?

    these are the softwares that i used in maintaining my computer before the error appears...
    "CCleaner, Registry Booster 2, SpyEraser, Spyware Doctor, Spyware Blaster, RegCure" thats the softwares that i used. and my antivirus is Panda Antivirus 2008. i doubt that the problem is on the registry.

    You may have had a virus and one of these removed it for you. Often when a virus is removed, however, it leaves behind registry errors and imaginary missing files. In your case the virus was probably started everytime you launched windows explorer. Now since it isn't there, you get the runntime error 53. Try this:

    Start> Run> type "regsvr32 /i shell32"

    This command reloads the .dll linked to explorer interface. Please post back your results.

    More info on the regsvr32 command here:

    thanks for your help, I finally remove it from my system. I used (Super Anti Spyware to get rid of it) I think its a Malware. Now theres another problem on my computer, everytime i open firefox it says that failed to start because js3250.dll was not found. Do you have any clue on how to repair this?
