This was the reply I received.................took a little time.....but well worth it.
I regreat to tell you that your computer was infected by an old MIRC virus that was packaged some times ago by a harmful user (it was two or three years ago). The latter used Paquet Builder 2.5 (our Self-Extracting packages builder) to create a single executable file that he distributed to users, and when these users run this file, the virus contents was unpacked in a temporary folder and the virus heart was activated. To be sure that the virus was always run, the virus author seemed to want its virus be installed each time Windows is run and so he made a fault that causes the "Paquet Builder Internal Error @78" error you get.
This virus is not harmful (it will not damage your computer), it seems to be related to MIRC.
We are not affiliated with the virus author that choosed Paquet Builder 2.5 certainly because it was free for all user.
When the problem appeared, we helped several users to get rid of it. Now major anti-virus programs can solve this problem and eleminate it successfully.

I posted that response just incase anyone else has this problem.
hello postcard, thanx for posting that for us...
It doesnt really matter if you have the best AV, what it matters is that you keep signature files in check. And another thing... they said "This virus is not harmful (it will not damage your computer)..." I would not take that lightly...even the most lightweight virus (read prank) can be harmful, intended or not..so keep an eye on that and please keep us posted on any further developments.
