Too many error messages!! What are they?

Discussion in 'Windows Networking' started by =?Utf-8?B?Q2hyaXN0eQ==?=, Apr 17, 2004.

  1. I keep getting different error messages! When I first turn my computer on it says "IEDLL.EXE" is not working and needs to be reinstalled or something??? Then the other day I got three more while I was online that said "USER.EXE", "EABH.DLL" and "GMT.EXE" were messed up or something! Does anybody know where these are from, where I can find them or how I can fix them???
    Thanks!

    When did you last check your system for parasites and other malware?

    IEDLL.EXE
    Your errors are the result of having a version of the Cool Web Search hijacker
    (CWS.Aff.Iedll) on your PC. Neither iedll.exe or loader.exe are part of the
    Win Me operating system. Delete iedll.exe but be careful about loader.exe as
    there are some legitimate applications that include a file with this name. For
    more details see http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/cwschronicles.html.
    Download and use
    CWShredder, the removal tool from either:
    http://www.zerosrealm.com/downloads/CWShredder.zip
    or
    http://www.spywareinfo.com/~merijn/files/cwshredder.zip
    to remove this unwelcome pest.

    EABH.DLL
    This is the Ezula TopText parasite.
    See http://www.doxdesk.com/parasite/TopText.html for details including removal
    instructions.

    GMT.EXE
    GMT is part of Gator
    See http://doxdesk.com/parasite/Gator.html including removal
    instructions. Also http://www.mvps.org/inetexplorer/Darnit.htm#Gator

    Download yourself a copy of the free Ad-Aware 6.0 from Lavasoft
    (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/software/adaware/) and also the free SpyBot
    (http://www.safer-networking.org/) and scan your system for and remove all
    unwanted parasites, adware and spyware that might be hiding on your PC.

  3. The only thing I've tried is deleting some of my temporary files (not sure what I need and what I don't) and running scandisk. Doing these things haven't worked. My computer runs very slow also. What do you suggest I do first?

    What to do first? Well I'd start at the top of my previous message and work
    my way through to the end. Until you clean your system of the three
    identified parasites and I dread to think how many others you also have
    installed (which is where AdAware and SpyBot Search & Destroy come in) your
    computer will continue to run very slow, if at all. Once you've done that you
    need to check you system regularly using not only your preferred antivirus
    application but also AdAware & SpyBot, making sure that in all cases you
    update their reference signature files before each use.
