I know this is nearly a year latter but the thread is relevant to me today.
A few days ago I loaded Avast 4.7, it
loaded up OK and my computer rebooted.
It went into, or I elected for, a system scan prior to XP opening. During
this process Avast found this, Win32:dialer-669 (Trj), the infected file was
at C:Program FilesInternet ExplorerBTOW Shared Filesbtwebcontrol.dll â€“
Avast asked me what I wanted to do and I elected for option 1 (delete).
Avast continued and it found another
occurrence of Win32:dialer-669 (Trj),
and I was asked again what to do, this time I elected for Repair, Avast
couldnâ€™t fix it so it asked me what to do again - but, I selected the repair
option and then started to write down the infected file path, and the second
list of options scrolled up the page and before I could note the file path,
it started C:System..... but that's all I got.
Avast completed the installation and all seemed well.
use Outlook, from Office 2000, and when it opened up I got an error
message, so I re-installed/fixed Office 2000 from disc and the error message
problem was sorted. The only problem is this; I am now unable to open up
links contained in e-mails.
I've reset my web setings but no change - I'm assuming that the system file
I deleted is causing my problem so all I need to do is replace it, but I
don't know what is missing - can anyone help me?
Thanks for reading this, even if you can't help me.
I have discovered that if I forward the email from my inbox, when the fwd
e-mail window opens the links then work OK, an error message opens up but it
gives no clues as to the cause, its just a message sayin there was a fault.
