Webcheck.dll problem

Hello, everybody!

Could someone tell me what is the purpose of the webcheck.dll file and whether it's essential to have on the computer? It's just that everytime I go on this computer, I have to keep moving the mouse at least every couple of minutes because if I don't, an illegal operation comes up and when I click details, it says that there's a problem with Webcheck.dll and I don't know what this files for. I know it's a registry/application file of some sort but that's all I know!

Plese, someone help make sense of this! I can't figure out what's going on.

As I write this post, I'm downloading AVG Free Edition to this computer to scan it for viruses. I'm considering installing the edwido anti-spyware but I don't know whether it's reliable or not. Could someone tell me whether it is or not?

Thanks in advance,

Vi.

That file is part of IE.

I suggest you run IE Repair. You go to Control Panel/Add-Remove, double click the "Microsoft IE & Tools entry" which should give the option.

If it should happen to say it cannot repair IE because of a wrong version file then collect the details and pop back with your IE version (from Help/About).

I've never used Edwido Anti-Spyware but their products appear to be good.

Ewido (if that's what is meant) is, by all accounts, quite good.

Running it on Win98 is not an option though - it requires Win2K or higher

It appears that there's been a recent merger

That's interesting. Hmmm, maybe ewido was going broke and had no choice but to merge with AVG (or maybe the other way round, Who knows?). They don't really give a whole lotta info on it.

Anyway, thanx 4 the help guys! If webcheck.dll gives me anymore troubles, I'll post back again to let you know.

Mergers & acquisitions can occur for a variety of reasons, but no matter by what name, that software will not run on Win9x

Here's the M$ webcheck page - as indicated by Derek, there may be an IE version mismatch

A variety of info here

Thanx guys! I haven't had the chance to try anything you suggested here. It might be a while before I post back again, so look out for a new post. Sorry this took so long!
