Blank Error Message

by spiralout987 / December 3, 2007 1:26 AM PST

Hey everybody,
I'm new here. How's everyone doing?

I get this error message just randomly whenever I'm on the computer or not:

I don't know what it is, what it's for, what's wrong with it, etc. Anyone have any idea where I can get more information as to what this error means? And what program is asking for the file that can't be found? Please help! I don't want to reformat my computer to get rid of this msg. Any help will be appreciated greatly. Thank you!

For me this has always been spyware related.

It's the other things that are more interesting. Also tell what BHO's you have installed.

What are those and how can I find out what they are? I use Firefox as my primary browser and use the IE Tab plugin in firefox whenever I need to use it. Wikipedia has a link to hijack this... should I post what hijack this gives me?
