trish4323 Posted December 30, 2005 Share Posted December 30, 2005 I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but I'm having several problems with my laptop. I don't know how much information you need, so I guess I'll just start by listing everything that's going on. Btw, I have Windows XP....also, although it's kind of embarrassing to admit that I'm so ignorant about computers, please be patient with me and explain everything in basic terms. Any help that you can give me will be appreciated...thank you so much. 1. When I start my computer, I get a message "error loading 0wao06rs.dll - the specified module could not be found" 2. I get pop-up windows when I start up, although I remove them when I run my spyware scans. 3. When I try to open my task manager, it flashes once quickly on the screen. The same thing was happening with yahoo IM, but today the yahoo IM start up screen opened without a problem. 4. Once I was able to open yahoo IM, I could not see the text that I typed in a message. 5. Complete web pages are not opening, as an example, in gmail i'm able to send and receive messages, but I don't see the options for modifying the text style (it only happens with my laptop, and did not happen when I accessed gmail from another computer). 6. Nothing happens when I try to access some items on a web page (such as, I tried to download the panda free scan, and when I clicked on "download" nothing happened). The computer doesn't freeze, I'm still able to get to other sites, but that's it. 7. When going to some websites, I get a message that my browser settings do not allow me to directly access a page (they are currently set at the default setting). I think that's about it, I'll add more if I think of anything else. I do run microsoft antispyware, spybot, and ad-aware daily - I remove any critical threats that are found. Also, I have Norton antivirus. I am so ready to stomp this thing into pieces, lol. Plus, I think I've been driving MP_Handler crazy by asking him so many questions. Thanks for your help!
