Re: how to edit .dll file

Why go through all the trouble?
Easiest solution is to reinstall the OS.

Also, since it sounds like a Windows PC, have you tried a system restore or booting in safe mode?
There's a chance that you could get around the virus with either of those.
Then you can run antivirus software and sigverif.exe to check a lot of the Windows DLLs.
If you have the Windows install disc, you can replace any infected DLLs and programs from the i386 folder on the disc.

Hope that helps.
Put that in your pipe and grep it!

Merge the following two files, in the attached archive, into your registry (by just double clicking on 'em) then reboot and your problem will be solved. Don't forget to backup your registry before doing this.
There is no rule, law or tradition that apply universally... including this one.
