Need help with Error Message

Hey Guys,

I'm getting this script error alert all the time in Windows 7. I attached an image of the alert.

Any idea what's causing it and how to fix it? Thanks in advance!

The quickest way to correct the problem is a system restore from before the problem began.

System Restore
I tried that but there are no restore points prior to when the problem began...

Here's what happened:

I noticed that my internet speed was unstable. This happened once in the past due to a Trojan virus, which I successfully removed with AVG.

But my trial expired and my PC was unprotected for a few months so I figured I contracted another virus. So I found an activation code and ran the AVG scan and it removed the virus...but the internet speed was still unstable.

So I ran the scan over and over again only to see that it kept finding and removing the virus. I eventually decided that the virus was immune to AVG and downloaded Kaspersky which seems to have removed the virus.

However, now I have this Script Error all the time...

Try looking at this link and follow the instructions to change the registry value. It is likely related to the Trojan you referenced.


Keep in mind, this involved editing the registry. It is strongly advised to backup the registry before attempting the suggestions in the link.

Thanks. I didn't even realize it was a virus because I figured the scan "must have removed it."

I eventually downloaded some program called ESET or something and ran it a few times. Then after restarting the PC, no more multiple dllhost processes or alerts. But knowing my luck, I probably just jinxed myself. Fingers crossed...

Thanks again for the guidance!

You're welcome, what other anti virus/malware software have you ran? Running only Anti-virus might not have cleaned everything up, assuming you still have lingering malware.

Assuming you haven't done any of this, please perform the following:

Run Malwarebytes, Do a Custom Scan, Check the box to scan for Rootkits and Scan C:
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free

You can safely Quarantine the results of this scan but please post the log file that is generated in your next post (If nothing is found, no need to attach it)

Download and run Superantispyware:
SUPERAntiSpyware - Downloading File

Download and run AdwCleaner:
AdwCleaner Download

Attach the log files created by these programs on your next post

One last thing:
Click Start > Type "Internet Options" in the search bar > Press Enter > Go to Connections Tab > Lan Settings > Ensure Proxy server has no check mark

I would not run AVG since it bloated up 10 years ago and fell out of favor. It has never been recommended here but often shows up with problems. I'd uninstall it to try free lightweight MSE or the slightly more aggressive Panda Cloud free which may resolve your problems. If not work through the other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7.

In addition the HP factory install is the worst possible install one can have of Win7, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilities that interfere with better versions built into the OS. Look over Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which compiles everything that works best in tens of thousands of installs we've directly helped do here, and has been used by over a million consumers without a single complaint. You'll go from buggy crap install to the best install in the world in a day.
