I keep on getting this error on my mom's PC (Jesus, it's new, but it still is being an arse):

We have looked around on Google, and it appears (just like the last question, maybe not coincidentally - click here to view it) that it is sound related. What is the best course of action, and what exactly does this mean?

I'd find out what user32.dll and hhctrl.ocx do, and go from there.

UPDATE: We've been talking to Rob, and he said to download user32.dll and put it in /windows/system32. We discovered that the file had been password protected, so now we reckon malware is involved.

Well, alright then.

You'd better get some of the free anti-virus/spyware programs, and run them. Here are the one's you should get (Google them to find their homepages):

-Spybot: Search and Destroy -AdAware -Avast!

Those are just three of my favorites. I'm sure other GF users will be able to add some other good programs to that list.

Your Windows files shouldn't have passwords on them. But in any circumstance, did you try put the Administrator password in?

Wait- there's a place I can download Windows Xp files? I desperately need the link...

You can download Windows DLL files in case you delete or corrupt, or infect them.

Well, the sound on my system is really bad and choppy, is the sound controlled by dll's?

No.

It is controlled by either your hardware, or software. (Ie - Sound card, and its drivers.)
