    Hi there, it seems lately when i turn on my computer, or I am on the internet, this error message comes up. How do i figure out, what is causing this message, I downloaded the new version of msn messanger and i am not sure if this caused this message. Also when they say close off any programmes running in the background, which ones am i allowed to close off, right now i have explorer, rnaapp, loadgm, rundll32 and systray.

    Here is a copy of the error mess J6F1L3 caused an invalid page fault in
    module J6F1L3.EXE at 0167:004024df.

    Hi Antoniette,

    There's nothing to be found on a file called J6F1L3, which in itself is not a particularly good sign, although there's certainly no reason for panic. ;)

    It would be useful to see your startups:

    Go to Start/run, and type Msinfo32, followed by OK.
    Go to Software Environment/Startup Programs.
    Now click Edit/'Select all', and then 'copy'
    Paste the contents in your post.

    That's what I meant, and it must be the cleanest startup list I've ever seen, the downside of course being that there's nothing there that could be responsible for this error...:rolleyes:

    It may be a good idea to first have your computer scanned on line at <A HREF="http://housecall.antivirus.com/">Trend Micro HouseCall </A>

    Tell us what happens.

    If you come out clean, download Startup.log from this site: http://home.earthlink.net/~rmbox/Reticulated/Toys.html

    It generates a text file on your desktop that will list all the applications that start in the many places when you start Windows.
    We don't need to see StubPath.txt, just StartupLog.txt

    This may help us further.

    Good luck,

    In Folder Options>View, make sure "Show all Files" is checked.

    Then do a Find files for J6F1L3*

    Right click on any files found and select properties>version. Is there any copyright info? What directory is it found in?

    Here's a trick: try renaming the extension to "old", eg: J6F1L3.old

    If the file is in use you may have to restart in safe mode to do it. Or even do it from DOS. But if you can, an error message may be generated which may identify what it is associated with or when it is being loaded.


    And do give us a look at the startuplog.txt (stubbpaths.txt is not needed)

    And most important of all, you need an antivirus scan. You can do an online one here:

    http://housecall.antivirus.com/pc_housecall/

    This file sounds suspiciously like a trojan which has used your OEM computer name by changing the letter values by one character.

    If Trend doesn't find anything, you can also try

    edit I'm betting you have the Weird trojan, an incredible nasty that infects hundreds of files and is so stealthy it usually cannot be seen in running tasks.

    Trend will detect and clean some of it at least, but the best antivirus program for purging it that I have seen is the old and no longer registerable version of InoculateIt.

    You can still get it here:

    http://cws.internet.com/virus-inoculate.html

    I would download and install this. When prompted to register, just click "later" and bypass that. It can still be updated by clicking on its Tools>Autodownload options. Or by downloading and running the "latest exe" from the link below. But I think it will clean weird, one way or the other.

    See my edited post, I think you may have the "Weird" virus. Good luck, it's a real nasty if you do. Let us know how you fare, but an antivirus scan is essential. I recommend downloading and installing InoculateIT. Update it if you can through Tools>Autodownload. Dont try to register it.

    Depends on how may files you have and the speed of the processor, so it's hard to say. Usually takes me about 15-20 minutes for a relatively small system. As long as it's making progress, don't worry, it will finish eventually.
