Tried to boot up laptop running vista HP
Got the above pop up plus someting like
C Windows system 32 ULEACC dllis eithe not esigned torun om Windows or it contains an error !! Help.
Can open in Safe mode..
Could thi9s be linked to emails I have been getting purporting to come from a hotmailadd5ress of a good friend but definitley not from them and pointing mr to a website selling cheap stuff. I did not go to that site but seems too much of a coincidence. I never had a virus so far in 10 years. Using AVG Free.
Geek Squad says machine is infected.
Now using Asus netook while i wait for repair of Laptop.
Any thoughts. Am on vacation in California using secure network connection.
Advice appreciated
