Okay, simply put, I have no idea what I am doing here, and probably less business being here on this site. But, this is my issue: I am trying to update a free photo gallery page for my son and the damn thing keeps saying "this program has performed an illegal..." and closes it. It does take cookies, and I haven't changed those settings. Error message:
IEXPLORE caused an invalid page fault in
module MSHTML.DLL at 017f:70d64aed.

Which I obviously have NO idea what that means.

Also, when I go to restart, I get this error message, "could not load or run 'fntldr.exe' specified in the WIN.INI file. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the WIN.INI file.

Please, someone take pity on this idiot (meaning, well, me)

TIA

Tell us about your system first : OS, CPU, Speed, ram, etc.

Please Download hijackthis from

http://www.merijn.org/files/hijackthis.zip

Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

After the scan has finished the "scan" button will turn into a "save log" button

save the log file and paste it here

Do not delete anything yet, as most things hijackthis finds are harmless and needed.

Hi caperjack

That's ok...I analyse logs on several forums

But if I didn't have the time to look at them here I wouldn't ask for them.

In future you could copy and paste my request for a log in any posts here where you think it may help......or refer them to another forum.

It's your shout....I don't mind either way

Yes it's a virus hangover. I know because I had it too and your message was one I read when looking for a soln. Well I have the answer now:

You have just experienced this virus - Symantec Security Response - Adware.SearchCounter which will have modified your computer in oh 30 or so different ways http://search.symantec.com/custom/us/query.html (pleasant!)

If you have Norton it may well clear it all up in one go. If you don't and do not fancy cleaning up all this mess yourself go to download.com (so you know the copies are not themselves hacked) and get the programs ad-aware and spybot. Run ad-aware first. It will clear up the mess in your registry but miss something called a hosts redirect - the main sign of which will be that when you type something into the internet explorer address bar that is not recognised the autosearch function will have been hijacked and you will be taken to the website of the hacker's choice. Now run Spybot which will spot and repair this "hosts redirect" for you. ...29 down and one to go.

Finally edit the win.ini file in your windows directory to prune out fntldr.exe from the run= line. You can use the notepad to do this. ..You may have other things there you want to keep. Track the files down in windows explorer to right click them, look at the version details and find out who made them. Make a note of the original line and think about trial removal of any you were not expecting. You can always edit them back in if they were required after all.

Oh - and public thanks to the moron who wrote this adware in the first place! They are real scumbags. :evil:
