Need Help With dthtml.exe Removal

Unread postby Foxman84 » March 29th, 2011, 2:55 am

Repost from previous attempt, since my system is finally back online.

First off, I have disabled anything involving Portraits Displays Inc. And it has also taken my copy of AVG, I can barely even use my internet connection. My default browser is Mozilla FireFox, and I am not very computer savvy. So I need things explained in simple easy terms. Me and my wife both use my computer, mainly for keeping in contact with family. So we need this fixed, as soon as possible. Any and all help would be appreciated.

When the computer starts up, we get an error message that looks like this: dthtml.exe - Entry Point Not Found

'The procedure entry point _iob_func could not be located in the dynamic link library MSVCR70.dll'

I looked up online, and tried to follow certain steps to get rid of this. But I can't seem to get rid of the error. So I am hoping that a community full of tech savvy people, could provide help. I also have the HiJackThis logfile. Oh, and we are running Windows XP Professional, with Service Pack 2. Our computer is used for gaming as well, so we haven't installed Service Pack 3, due to the issues it caused us in the past.

EDIT: I am also having misc. programs lock up my system, and Adobe will not update. I'm wondering if this is also part of the issues I am having, or if it is entirely different. Any and all help would be much appreciated!!!

If you are unwilling to install Service Pack 3, then frankly it's futile to attempt a clean up of your computer. Support for XP with Service Pack 2 ended on July 13, 2010. Your system has received no security updates since that time, therefore, with the passage of each month, your system becomes increasingly more vulnerable to malware attacks.

By posting just a description of your problems it is likely that your topic will be passed by and you will not receive the help you're looking for.

We need to know what's running on your computer so we can give you appropriate instructions.

May I draw your attention to THIS topic, which you should have read, and which tells you what we need you to post so that we can help you.

This topic will now be closed.

If you still need help, please start a new thread with:

  • FRST.txt
  • Addition.txt
  • Details of your problems.

If for any reason you can't run FRST, please let us know in your post.
