Can't get online by clicking on butterfly

A window comes up displaying : MSN Archive: checksum mismatch in file
themedef 32.maropup.wav.

I can get online thru Internet Explorer but don't have full access to other
features, such as Favorites. If it helps, McAfee was replaced by AVG several
months ago but the problem occurred well after that change.

Hope someone can point me in the right direction.

It sounds like MSN Explorer is corrupt. If you are an MSN subscriber -
http://support.msn.com
If your account is through a partner such as Qwest or Verizon, contact them.
You can also try reinstalling MSN Explorer from disc or via download from
http://membercenter.msn.com
Note that there are newsgroups for MSN subscribers that would be a more
appropriate venue for community help with MSN. The first is for Dial-up, the
other is for general MSN discussion:

I don't find the MCPR.exe button. In the upper section I find a DOWNLOADS
button immediately followed by: Author's Site, MajorGeeks-USA and another
MajorGeeks-USA.
In the next section down I find a RECOMMENDED DOWNLOAD button which seems to
be a Spyware Doctor which doesn't sound like what is needed. Can you give
this neophyte a bit more specificity?

Thanks

This group is for Media Center questions and issues. You would probably find
more/better help in a different forum/newsgroup or at an MSN support site.

Bob, your 2nd MCPR site worked OK and it did remove a group of products but,
after rebooting I still had the problem. I do appreciate your help and will
now proceed to the next suggestion.

Thanks again

Do a thorough check for malware, following all of the steps at one of these
Web pages.
Help with malware:
All MS-MVP Sites.
Consider this: Whenever a new error condition appears on your computer, it
is almost certain that there was some change to the computer soon before the
problem began.
http://aumha.org/a/parasite.htm
Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827315
http://aumha.org/a/quickfix.htm

http://mvps.org/winhelp2002/unwanted.htm
http://inetexplorer.mvps.org/darnit.html
http://www.mvps.org/sramesh2k/Malware_Defence.htm
http://aumha.org/a/parasite.php

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing programs like Messenger Plus,
whose ads for malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince
you that you owe it to the author. See also:
http://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=27971
Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is
being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure of.

As Jamie said, "This group is for Media Center questions and issues."
