I purchased "RegCure," a registry/ cleaning program in spring of '08, but did not renew it . I used Add/Remove to remove the program from my computer. But error messages such as: (1) " RUNDLL: Error loading C:\Program Files]Common files\ParetoLogic\USS.dll. This is not a valid Win 32 application ;" (2)" Pareto_Update.exe-Bad Image. The application or DLLC: \Program Files\Common Files\ParetoLogic\UUS dll is not a valid Windows Image. Please check this against your installation diskette" continue to pop up every time the computer is turned on and randomly throughout the entire time I'm using it. I have found the company website but there is no way to submit a problem or to contact Pareto or RegCure through it . I emailed one company listed as a user for a customer service address, but the pop-ups only increased; I called a local company also listed on its site. The owner had no idea who the company was nor why he was listed on their website. I feel harassed and frustrated, because I've spent hours trying to find out how to contact this company without success. How do I get rid of these messages? The error messages started after I ignored requests to renew. My computer is a 2003 HP Pavilion Desktop. My browser is Explorer. Restore can't eliminate the messages. When I go to Add/Remove there's no indication of the software's existence. HELP!

Hi JoyWilli2,


My name is Tomk. I would be glad to take a look at your log and help you with solving any malware problems. Logs can take a while to research, so please be patient and I'd be grateful if you would note the following:

  • I will be working on your Malware issues, this may or may not, solve other issues you have with your machine.
  • The fixes are specific to your problem and should only be used for the issues on this machine.
  • Please continue to review my answers until I tell you your machine appears to be clear. Absence of symptoms does not mean that everything is clear.
  • It's often worth reading through these instructions and printing them for ease of reference.
  • If you don't know or understand something, please don't hesitate to say or ask!! It's better to be sure and safe than sorry.
  • Please reply to this thread. Do not start a new topic.
