After download Spybot Search & Destroy on my computer, I couldn’t open any files on my Desktop, Control Panel to remove or deleted any software, and use the wireless internet, the message C:\WINDOW \SYSTEM32\RUNDLL32EX, pop up. What should I do to remove the message? The software on my computer is Window XP Professional.

Hope this helps
