    Hello everyone, not certain if this fits here or in software but here goes.

    I ran spybot on the kids pc and it says that \system32\kernel32.dll has changed. Now can I download a new kernel32.dll and replace the changed one, will this solve the problem or just create another one?:eek:

    I also have a registry key that has been changed and this was by My Web....don't know how to change this back

    Thanks for all advice

    Thanks DefConDelta, very good resource. I have an Emachine running winxp home and this appears only when I run spybot but as of yet does not seem to be affecting the functionality of the pc. I also get the registry has changed and this is associated with MyWeb...another download from the kids.

    I was wondering if just leaving will be ok or should this be corrected?

    Thanks

    I wouldn't worry about it. I think it's associated with Yahoo somehow.

    (y) Thanks for the reply, it seems to be working ok so I think I will leave it for now and see if anything else happens.
