friend of mine receiving error and cant get into the PC

Hey guys, a friend of mine while booting the PC gets this error message. Dont know if its a boot virus or not. She has Windows XP


Internet Explorer Driver

Run-time error ‘91’

Object variable or with block variable not set




She later then gets this second error message


neric Host Process for Win32 Services

NT Authority\System

An error has been detected for Win32 and Windows must

Shut down.

(then it begins a countdown clock starting at 50 seconds; when it gets to zero, Windows closes any open programs and shuts down, then restarts)



She just had an upgrade to a DSL connection. I know when I upgrade my connection to cable in the past, my Internet Explorer got loaded with Browser helper programs, spyware from the cable company. It was crazy. So I dont know if it is that or a reboot virus. She cannot login to her computer.

Should I trie going into Safe Mode, then install Adaware, SpyBot, then run Stinger or Norton Anti Virus?

    if windows doesn't stay active long enough to run the removal tools, go to a cmd prompt and type "shutdown -a". hopefully that will holt the restart process.

    Yes - that is the command I was looking for.

    Thanks for the command.

    This is an error thrown by an application written in Visual Basic. Internet Explorer does not have "drivers" per se, so this looks like it being generated by a piece of VBScript code. There is a lot of IE Malware written using VBScript, and it is usually distributed via email attachments, or silently downloaded by your web browser from a malicious web site.

    Just a thought.

    it didnt work, she is still getting her PC rebooted. Damn! I will look into this with the other possibilities just mention here.

    visual basic problem? should I use stinger in trying to get rid of that problem or should I use Adware.

    The fastest and easiest way to solve this is to slave the drive to another machine and run a full system AV sweep. Once you have done that fire it up and do a full spyware sweep - chances are that will solve your problems. Personally I suggest Ewido and the MS Antispyware tool for your spyware scanners.

    Now are those free spyware removal tools? Im going to use Adaware and SpyBot. And for the viruses, Stinger and Norton Symmatic

    Yes they are free for personal use. I also use AntiVir as a backup AV scanner as you can install it without the integration and it works excellently. It also has the advantage of not getting nuked by most of the viruses out there that disable AV progs such as those from Symantec, McAfee, CA and others.
