    Hi Fastboy 42,

    Try downloading this -use it as a bootable cd, i.e. boot in from the cd you can make with it and it may root out any nasties.

    Hope it helps

    Thankyou very much guys. I was just about to reinstall windows. I'm just trying both right now. I have to run sfc/scannow off the windows repair disk. SIW2's idea look interesting to. I have to try them. Hope it works

    Hi fastboy,

    1. Boot into the System Recovery Options screen.
    2. Click on the Command option.

    Help CI.dll Corrupt or missing!!!!!-sfc-1-2009-01-25_044244.jpg

    Then type in sfc /scannow then press enter, like this:

    I do not have CI.dll on my system, I have ci.dll. That is why I suggested the download (you will need access to another pc , of course )

    http://www.free-av.de/en/tools/12/av...ue_system.html

    You place a cdr in the cd/dvd drive - do not format it, if Autoplay pops up, just close it.

    Then rt click and run as admin on the .exe you downloaded

    Help CI.dll Corrupt or missing!!!!!-sfc-3-2009-01-25_045313.jpg

    click Run , and Ok the uac prompt. Then click burn.

    You now have a bootable cd to boot into your pc and find and hopefully remove any Trojans, etc.

    Hope it helps

    ci.dll is what i was supposed to say.

    When i go into command prompt it doesn't have C:\windows\system32. instead it has X:\sources>

    Seems to be asking for a replacement file.

    If someone posts you a copy of the ci.dll from a 32 bit system you can unzip it and copy to a cd.

    Then go back to the command prompt , put that cd in and direct it to your dvd drive as the source.

    I don't have 32bit - sorry.
