Question ID: 351674
I was on a website and the computer crashed and re-booted.  At re-boot
it allowed me to get into my account but gave this error message: 
"Run A DLL As an APP has encountered a problem and must close".  I
also got "Unable to find MFC70.DLL Reinstall may fix problem".  At the
top of that box it said unable to find fash.exe.  Any idea what to do?

Hello thelonemonk-ga,

Thanks for asking this question in GA.

It appears that your computer has been infected by a spyware which is

easily with some anti-spyware programs.

What is spyware?

Just run the following programs to get rid of the error. After
downloading these programs, make sure that you update them before

Um, your answer might be correct, although I don't think it is Spyware
as I run SPychecker regularly.  The biggest problem is that I cannot
get past logging on.  Once I log on the error message comes up and
shuts down the computer.  There is no time to try to even get on-line
let alone try to download or run any programs.  I should have
mentioned that in my question.  Therefore, I need to figure out how to
get the computer to allow me to get logged in so I can run some
programs to clean up this mess.

Did you try rebooting your computer in Safe Mode? If not, then reboot
it in safe mode and then delete this file

You can invoke Safe Mode by pressing F5 or by pressing F8 and
selecting it from the boot menu.

In Safe mode, run all the programs that I've mentioned and let me know
if the problem still exists.

Good Luck.

Thanks for your help.  I can't tell you if your solutions would have
worked because my wife took the computer into the shop to have it
repaired.  I wish she would have waited a day.  If I could have gotten
started in safe mode (which never crossed my mind) I am sure your
solutions would have worked.

system is going to work after getting repaired. And Thanks for the
