Question

Computer randomly, and constantly tries to open url.dll

I don't have a good understanding of computers, but I know its some type of Asus. It was using Windows 7, but when I decided to update to Windows 10, an immediate problem was noticed. The screen was almost instantly filled with the computer trying to open url.dll. When I decided to degrade back to Windows 7, the problem still happened, just at a less common rate. After a while of just dealing with it I decided to try and open it with Internet Explorer. Apparently this was a bad idea as now instead of just asking to open it, it downloads itself, multiple times. I've tried to find if anyone else had this problem on a couple of things, google, other forums, but all they were about was just corrupted url.dlls. I have tried sfc and scannow also. This just gets in the way, sometimes making the computor unusable at times.

I probably should check on this more, but the error message is just the normal Don't have a program to open this file message.

So I take it Grif's scans are complete?

I'd take this over to bleepingcomputer.com where they will have you run some reports that they'll look over.

Be patient as a lot of folk need the deeper inspection of their PC.
