|Derek - I'll believe that, lol! Problem is, since I don't know much about the C++ Runtime Library error and there doesn't seem to be much info on the internet about it, despite it apparently being somewhat common, so I wasn't sure. The CCleaner registry cleaning I have used before is pretty gentle, and I make several backups before I use that aspect of the program.|
It's been storming most of the day, so I just finished the SuperAntiSpyware scan - a few Adware Tracking Bugs, but none that I haven't seen before. So it seems like the machine is clean of infections, at least.
I haven't tried using Paint Shop Pro again yet, I'm a bit worried that I'll get the error again. I can't remember if it was a C++ error that I used to get, or what it was.
I have figured out why it worries me so much, though - the last time I saw this was right before I had to reformat the machine, when it had a few other problems. So far, so good, though, as far as everything else and turning up clean.
Any ideas for what I should try next for the C++ error, or even what it's talking about?
(I swear, I'm not as hopeless about computers as I may be coming off as... >.<;)
JohnW - You posted about the same time I did. :) I have ATF cleaner on here, haven't used it for a bit but may. I'm still reading over the ComboFix info...I suppose instead of saying 'hesitant' when it comes to using it, I should say 'scared spitless' instead - all the warnings and such - that I really want to be sure first. Plus, I am trying to find out more about C++ - hard since it's so general. I'm considering restoring the computer to a day before the error occurred, not sure if that would do anything though...
