    On logging into Vista Home Premium I get the message appear:

    DNS
    Failed to load control 'SocketXCtl' from SocketX.OCX. Your version of
    SocketX.OCX may be outdated. Make sure that you are using the version of
    the control that was provided with your application.

    The file doesn't even exist on my computer. I thought it may be
    something to do with IP V6, so removed this from the connection
    properties. Any ideas what this is relating to so I can remove it, or
    fix it?

    Cheers.

    So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
    For quite a few people it's by installing 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:

    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.

    Hey, that all looks simple enough. So when can he actually start to use his
    computer?
