Hi all, first post here, hope someone out there can help as I am pretty stumped, I have a problem with my machine, basically I thiought I had caught a virus, and was getting three Application errors on boot up, my wife contacted those wonderful guys at Spywareinfo.com, and a guy called Nasdaq could not have been more helpful, he found past traces of vundo and Sbot infections and through various processes cleaned the machine, however when it came to the boot up errors, although he managed to stop them on boot up, I still can't use the programs

The errors all have the same number and when checking with Microsoft, could find no record of this number, however when googling it, came up with your web site, it appears you have successfully sorted this out on someone elses machine, and I was hoping you could do the same with mine, any help would be greatly appreciated

error message is "The application failed to initalize properly (0xc0150004). Click on ok to terminate the aplication", and the errors are on the following programs

MSACUI.exe (Defender)
MSMSGS.exe (Messenger)
WMPNSCFG.exe (Media Player)

and to make matters worse, have just discovered that Nero no longer works either

below is the last hijackthis log done before I shut down the machine for a few days, (more out of frustration than anything else), have had this problem up on Tech Support Guy for a few days without a reply

Hmmm... Not seeing any malware left hanging around. We'll try some scans and see if we can't find see something that doesn't belong.

Download AVG Anti Spyware
  • Install AVG Anti Spyware
  • Double-click the icon on Desktop to launch AVG
  • On the main Status screen, under Your Computer's Security, click Resident Shield
  • Click the word active to change it to inactive
  • On the top of the main screen click Update.
  • Then click on Start Update. The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.
  • Once the update has completed select the "Scanner" icon at the top of the screen, then select the "Settings" tab.
  • Once in the Settings screen click on "Recommended actions" and then select "Quarantine".
  • Under "Reports"
    • Select "Do Not Automatically generate report after every scan"
When you have finished updating, EXIT AVG Anti Spyware. Do Not run a scan just yet, we will shortly.

Next, please reboot your computer in Safe Mode by doing the following:
  • Restart your computer
  • After hearing your computer beep once during startup, but before the Windows icon appears, press F8.
  • Instead of Windows loading as normal, a menu should appear
  • Select the first option, to run Windows in Safe Mode.

Run AVG Anti-Spyware with it's updated definitions:(...it's important that all windows must be closed)
  • Click Scanner
  • Click on the Scan tab
  • Click Complete System Scan to begin scanning.
    Once the scan is complete do the following:
  • If you have any infections you will prompted, then select "Apply all actions"
  • Once finished, click the Save report button, then click Save Report As and save it to your desktop. (make sure to remember where you saved that file, this is important).

Reboot your system in Normal Mode.

Please open IE and go to
Kaspersky WebScanner

Next Click on Kaspersky Online Scanner

You will be prompted to install an ActiveX component from Kaspersky, Click Yes.
  • The program will launch and then begin downloading the latest definition files:
  • Once the files have been downloaded click on NEXT
  • Now click on Scan Settings
  • In the scan settings make that the following are selected:
    • Scan using the following Anti-Virus database:
    • Extended
    • Scan Options:
    • Scan Archives
      Scan Mail Bases
  • Click OK
  • Now under select a target to scan:
    • Select My Computer
  • This will program will start and scan your system.
  • The scan will take a while so be patient and let it run.
  • Once the scan is complete it will display if your system has been infected.
    • Now click on the Save as Text button:
  • Save the file to your desktop.
  • Copy and paste that information in your next post.

* Turn off the real time scanner of any existing antivirus program while performing the online scan
