HJT failed to initialize; AdAware detections corrupted

Unread postby polar » September 10th, 2007, 1:24 pm

I'd love to post a HijackThis! log, but I received a message stating:

This application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click on OK to terminate the program.

I also had corrupted AdAware detections when I booted up AdAware SE.

Per Merjin's site, I downloaded and ran the SmartKiller mini removal program, but it did not detect CoolWWWSearch.SmartKiller. I then downloaded the newest version of HJT!, but had the same popup.

Spybot S&D did not detect anything, so I'm wondering what to do next.

I was able to install AdAware 2007 (through MajorGeeks - it was being blocked from download.com). It logs an unhandled exception when it hits the following:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\tapiui.dll

Hello and welcome to the forums

My name is Katana and I will be helping you to remove any infection(s) that you may have.

Please observe these rules while we work:
1. If you don't know, stop and ask! Don't keep going on.
2. Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
3. Please continue to respond until I give you the "All Clear"
(Just because you can't see a problem doesn't mean it isn't there)

If you can do those three things, everything should go smoothly :D

I apologize for the delay in responding, but as you can probably see the forums are quite busy
and helpers look for posts with zero replies.
Unfortunately there are far more people needing help than there are helpers.

If you still require help please post a reply to this thread.
I will be notified and I will get back to you ASAP.
