sshook.dll may still be being loaded by the system. If so, you will not be able to delete the file, because it is in use.

Try deleting the file when booted into Safe Mode.

thanks much. will indeed do. :D

Give it a try. If the dll is loading even in Safe Mode, you may still not be able to delete it. If that's the case, try the following:

* Click on the "Run..." option under your Start menu, type "cmd" (omit the quotes) into the resulting "Open:" box, and hit enter.

* In the DOS box that opens, type the following command, and then hit Enter:

regsvr32 /u full path of filename


For example, if sshook.dll lives in your C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Tmas folder, the full command would be:

regsvr32 /u C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\Tmas\sshook.dll

See if you can then delete the file (you might need to reboot before attempting the deletion.
