another program comes up. The 2 culprits seem to be MSO.DLL and
VBINT.DLL they seem to be grabbing programs other thanwhat they are
intended for and the seem to be disappearing and showing up in other
places. Any help is appreciated.
Re: Wacky Windows XP
That happens on occasion when you start something like Access and
something like Frontpage wants to install due to some bad or aborted
install in someway. It could just as easily be asking for Visio to be
installed. I have seen it do it. I think you have some kind of
installation issues you need to address. I had some similar problems with
a machine on the job. I called Tech Support and they corrected the
problem. I don't know what they did to fix it. I don't think you have a
malware problem, IMHO. You could search Google for a possible fix.
Clicking on a DLL may start some utility program to look at the program
interfaces into the DLL. MSO.dll is a Microsoft Office dll. Maybe, you
have some kind of file association problem that's making bogus programs
start. File association is when you double-click on a file like an Excel
file and Excel starts or Word starts for a Word document.
Hey, anything is possible but it doesn't seem like you have a malware
