Do an On-Line Scan

by rkuhn In reply to Message error

More than likely, you have a virus that is causing that error.

Most of the A/V vendors offer free on-line scanners like Symantec and Trend Micro.

Here is a free on-line scan offered by BitDefender: .
And another by TrendMicro: .

using AVG ( or your own anti-virus program, with the latest virus definitions, try to perform a full system scan in Safe Mode (not Safe Mode with Networking). You can also use McAfee Stinger (

I would also use this tool: RootKitRevealer (
or AVG's free RootKit detector and Remover: (

If you determine that there is indeed a virus involved and which one it is,
I recommend you go here: .
TrendMicro has always been my favorite source for virus information and removal.

My second choice would be BitDefender. Here's a link to their extensive library of free removal tools:

Please let me know if this helps.
good Luck.
