I have this window barging in when ever I try to install a particular egame. It tells me that the file 'addon2VB.dll' cannot be found. The file is in Windows System 32 but not in the registry. 'Symantec' and 'Simply The Best' web sites suggest that Ad-Aware programe is to blame and whilst they give advice on how to solve the problem (removing the addon file from the registry), it ain't worked with me and this included using the Windows XP Home Restore system. I have also downloaded and activated Ace Utilities to clean up the registry but that has done nothing. I am wondering if the addon file should actually be installed into the registry file. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Have you tried running a system file check. Start/Run/ type sfc /scannow you will need your XP CD

See my email, there is a space btween sfc and /scannow. Unless you type it exactly it won't be recognised.
