I'd like to suggest to try using..
LSPFix from http://www.cexx.org/lspfix.htm
See if that will fix any problem caused by buggy software (uninstalled or currently installed).
I am willing to try anything at this point! LOL I have Zone Alarm,Avast Malawarebytes, Spybot & adaware!!! He always has problems and of course it is NOT his fault
Will not hurt to try :)
Not his fault for sure if this fixes it
If not, we got to blame IE
it is still popping up Now what to do? I got rid of a lot of malaware, spyware and also some trojans after all of that this thing started, I am at a complete loss. Also had to uninstall IE8 and reinstall it. Part of the menu board was black with strange icons and after I ran the fixit program you suggested the menu bar did go back to normal, so some help there. Thanks:) Ready to pitch the whole shebang out the back door, LOL
We need to troubleshoot then
Sorry it's still popping-up.
Can you try to run a scan using Malaware (it's only a scanner with no removal engine)
Please post back if there's any thing it finds that other tools did not.
To start troubleshooting IE8, try opening IE8 in no-adds mode. It's in the Accessories>System Tools>IE8 no add-ons mode. Please tell us if the dialogue or error on memory continue to appear and if the menu bar is still missing.
I put no add ons in his IE8 So we will try this and report back, after he quits playing his games!!! LOL I do a lot of work on his PC after he goes to bed.
Hope he sleeps well and sound then :D
So you can attend on this soon
Take your time
He will sleep
well as long as I don't get irritated and start banging on his pc and swearing! LOL
ROFL. Be nice to the PC and husband :D
this is what it found
I have not seen this one before. Trymedia HKEY local machine\software\Trymedia Systems
and \Active MARK software
it found these two only
It's known as adware
Web of Trust flags it http://www.mywot.com/en/scorecard/www.trymedia.com
SiteAdvisor found no problem with the said company but look at the comment: http://www.siteadvisor.com/sites/trymedia.com
"slow computer (usually)
- big CPU strain - look in Task Manager and if you see that the value is almost always between 40% and 100% your computer is surely infected with adware - or, if you have got Windows 7, you can use the widget that monitors CPU strain
- adds that occur when you doubleclick on shortcut to your browser, usually a few seconds before you see your home page (can destroy a theme in Firefox if you have got Personas)
- presence of folder called TryMedia in Program Files
I suggest removing Trymedia and Active Mark. Active Mark is also from Trymedia.
See if the memory error when opening IE8 will be gone if those are removed.
BTW, have you tried to run IE8 with no add-ons mode? Did it show the menu bar and did the memory error appeared?
will do all of the above
husband said it seems to pop up when he is using Yahoo!!! It just found a trojan which is Trojan.Win32.Fake Av!IK
I didn't put on any add ons in his IE8
All of the other programs I have used only found 4 problems, LOL
I have it doing a full scan now
will report when it's finished, so far it has found 11 items:(
Thank you so much Donna:)
I was going to pay the 40 bucks as this is the first of all the scans that has found so much. But the freebie is very welcome.
You are appreciated:)

Blame the forum software
Anyway, glad they continue to provide free scanner and remover. It's good to scan using MBAM, SUPERAntiSpyware and A-squared Free because they have different detections and frequency of updates. Just quarantine first just in case any of them found a False detection. It happens often especially with A2.
Don't ya just hate the limitations on post replies?? LOL
I didn't ask earlier I just read until I found some of the same problems. You guy's have enough to do. But this one had me beat. I would love to get ahold of the people that put out this garbage! I don't understand what they get out of destroying others property.
All of you in this forum have been a great help over the years! Thanks all!
We're happy to help...
And we'll continue to help even if the post reply is limited to some numbers only
Hope things are OK now. If not, we can always continue LOL
Donna, I found this
Did not know you don't have Service Pack for your XP
Give it a try. Good work!
all the updates and hotfixes for service pack 3, A lot of work and still not done, I was at it until 2 AM!!! Since the problems are on his computer I am really not sure how many updates he has missed even though I sat it for automatic updates. I never get on his pc uless something goes wrong, LOL Wii keep you informed of how it's going and IF I ever find the fix I will post it.

He is a good man, I wouldn't throw out 46 years for PC problems, I will just make his life a living hell!!! He just wants his PC for games and the internet news!! I have to do all the repairs and he said if I die first and he has a problem he will take over my PC and when that goes he will throw them out!!! RIGHT!!!
Hope they get this fixed so you can rest
I agree with Carol. Two awards for you. So patient wife
I may do something

Oh! no :D
