AVG and 16-bit program
Posted 30 June 2004 - 05:38 PM
This happened after removing the Home search spyware, and probably damaging the shell.dll...(although i downloaded the fresh ones).
any help would be great

What is happening is easy to fix.
Shut off the System Restore and restart the computer, and get ready for a clean install.
No cache, Temporary Internet, History, nothing in the Recent folder, not many cookies, etc.
If you have a firewall and popup blocker on, shut them off.
Delete all zipped viruses/spyware/adware/cookies in C:\Windows\All Users\Application Data\Spybot - Search & Destroy\Recovery, and do the same in folders in the Program Files directory.
Scan the drive for errors and defrag.
Use "Shut Down" this time instead of "Restart".
Wait 25 - 35 seconds and put the computer back on.
Now install AVG and it will go in fine.
You can put on your firewall and popup blocker now.
