    I have a problem with the following error:

    Error loading: C:\WINDOWS\System32\msiefr40.dll
    The specified module cannot be found.

    I scanned the registry with BHODemon and ran HijackThis. Here is my log list. Please advise on what to remove to get rid of this problem. Thanks.

    Welcome to TSG!

    That's not the only problem you have. You have a lot of spyware/adware.

    First go to Add/Remove programs and uninstall New.Net if it is there.
    Run Hijack This again and put a check by these. Close all browser windows and "Fix checked"

    Restart to Safe Mode: press f8 on startup and select Safe Mode from the boot menu.

    In Safe Mode delete:

    The C:\WINDOWS\bs2.dll file
    The C:\WINDOWS\System32\stlbdist.DLL file
    The C:\WINDOWS\System32\IEDriver folder
    The C:\WINDOWS\Belt.exe file
    The C:\Documents and Settings\Kids\Application Data\qtllwblf.exe file

    Boot back to normal.

    Go here http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/ and download Adaware 6

    Install the program and launch it.

    I strongly recommend that you read the help file to familiarize yourself with the program.

    Before running the scan look at the top of the main window and you will see a Gear Icon. This is where you configure the settings. Click on that and then in the next window that pops up click on the "Scanning" tab on the left side. Under "Drives and Folders" put a check by "Scan within archives" and below that under "Memory and Registry" put a check by all the options there.
    The click on the "Tweak" tab and under "Scanning engine" put a check by "Unload recognized processes during scanning" ...........then......under "Cleaning engine" put a ckeck by "Let windows remove files in use at next reboot" then click "Proceed"

    Next in the main window look in the bottom right corner and click on "Check for updates now" and get the latest referencefiles.
    After getting the latest referencefiles you are ready to scan.

    Click "Start" and in the next window make sure "Active in depth scanning" is checked then click "Next" and the scan will begin.

    When it is finished let it fix everything it finds.

    Restart your computer.

    Then go here http://spybot.eon.net.au/index.php?lang=en&page=download and download Spybot.

    Install the program and launch it.

    Before scanning press "Online" and "Search for Updates" .

    Put a check mark at and install all updates.

    Click "Check for Problems" and when the scan is finished let Spybot fix/remove all it finds.

    Restart your computer.

    Be sure and take advantage of the "Immunize" feature in Spybot.

    Finally go here http://www.net-integration.net/cgi-bin/forum/ikonboard.cgi?;act=ST;f=38;t=3051 for info on how this happens and how to help prevent future attacks.
    On this page you will find links to Javacool's SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard. Get them both and check for updates frequently.
    The Immunize feature in Spybot used in conjunction with SpywareBlaster , SpywareGuard and weekly scans with Spybot and Adaware will go a long way toward keeping your PC free of these pests..

    Important!: ALWAYS check for updated detections and referencefiles before scanning with Spybot and Adaware. And be sure to check for updates to SpywareBlaster and SpywareGuard on a weekly basis.
