last night i installed updates for windows 7 pro. now whenever i try to connect to yahoo IM or launch one of my games, i get this error. i've tried a system restore, but it failed because supposedly there was a file missing or something. i havent changed anything within my system. i know better than to mess with the things i know nothing about. so i'm thinking something in those updates made my pc go wonky. help as always is appreciated.

What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc

so i'm thinking something in those updates made my pc go wonky
sounds like it

see if this will work

use safemode to do the restore. As the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu will appear - choose safemode

Restore PC to an Earlier Date & Time

Go Start>>All Programs>>Accessories>>System Tools>>System Restore

  • Click in the radio button Choose a different restore point
  • Click Next
  • put a tick in Show more restore points
  • Pick a Date before this happened
  • Click Next
This should restore the PC to that time & date

AVG removal should NOT have caused that to happen

try safemode
as the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu appears - choose
safemode - see if that works

managed to get system restore to work and seems to have cleared up. i will leave this topic open for a few days in case it resurfaces like some have reported.
