Hi there,

thank you for your help in advance.

Here is where i'm getting stuck, I need your help to get this fix it. I can't download any antivirus it won't let me and download IE either. Only on IE it won't show any image or picture but chrome or foxfire it'll show the picture on the browser. 

everytime i want to download something it'll give this message.


C:\windows\system32\WindowsCodecs.dll is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support.

I have moved your post from Meet and Greet forum as you are likely to receive a bigger response in this forum here:


Please tell us:


1 what anti virus product you are using at the moment

3 32 or 64 bit

4 make, model number and age of your computer.

5 If you have run chkdsk /r

6 if you have run sfc /scannow

7 if your operating system and all programmes are legal and correctly licenced.

8 if you have a complete back up of everything that is important to you, with at least one copy kept safe offsite on removable media.

This looks to me to be a severe malware infection.
