does anybody know what this means?

Recommended Posts

I keep getting this error, it goes up in increments

for instance




and so on


and am trying to install some games on my laptop and this message pops up over and over


" _is9.tmp has encountered a problem and needs to close. we are sorry for the inconvenience."

"If your were in th middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost."




If anybody has a idea what this is, help is appreciated.

hey thanks for the reply :)


Im pretty sure its not a trojan, the message is coming from a clean install of windows


what i did in this order;


clean install

downloaded updates and patches

downloaded nod32

downloaded zonealarm

disconnected pc from internet (physically)


then tried to install some games and got the error message


Im not sure why this message is coming up I will keep looking


thanks for the suggestion :):)

well i deleted the temp files and nothing still getting the same message


also i found the folder where the message is coming from


it coming from the "prefetch folder" located in c<windows<prefetch


i did a search on the folder

a couple of sites said the same thing that you can delete the contents of the folder, that in some cases it speed up the boot process

so i did hoping it would eleminate the problem but nothing it still comes up

i downloaded a couple of utilities programs maybe i had a registry errror somewhere or something just a sign to show tht something works, but of course nothing works

but anyways here is a pic maybe someone can figure it out
