XtreamLok Alert

Every time I try to load Morpheus I get the error "XtreamLok Alert: dll loading problem or debugger detected or Integrity violated."  I did my on-line research (including here) and I found some "TRYs"

My registry doesn't contain xl.exe
My windows directory (and my entire c drive for that matter)  doesn't contain VXBLOCK or any of the other files indicating that the XtreamLok program has been installed.

I have run adaware that found some spyware and removed it but nothing about XtreamLok. (I deleted all the adware re-booted and I still get the same message Just on Morpheus.)

The only changes to my system {since Morpheus last worked) (XP Pro) has been SP2 installed and SpamBayes outlook plug-in for spam.

This is not life an death here but I would like to know more about this and more importantly HOW TO GET RID OF XTREAMLOK

What all spyware and ad-ware removal tools you have tried ?

Have you checked if that program is present in add/remove programs so that you can uninstall it ?

Not sure if XtreamLok is related to Morpheus.. You may want to reinstall Morpheus to see if there is any good..
I guess it is some kind of adware attached to Morpheus as Morpheus is a p2p software..

and I surely guess since you removed Xtreamlok (one of the adware tools should have removed) morpheus is not running properly.

Morpheus and this adware has got some connection and since you had removed it , morpheus doesnot like it..

Try reinstalling Morpheus but that would bring back this adware which you donot want..

If my first 2 comments , does not help then do this

First make sure you uninstall Morpheus

Then run spyware tools

************
Some of the experts here have helped in compiling all the important spyware tools and they are listed in this thread
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web/Browser_Issues/Q_20975384.html

After installing them, First Update them and then run

My recommendation would be to start with spybot ,ad-ware ,CWshredder and get the log from Hijackthis and save the log and paste it here http://hijackthis.de/index.php?langselect=english to analyze it . Once you analyze you would see lot of exe and other files that you need to remove. Remove that the site recommends. If it doesnot know what file it is , do a google search and see if those files are wanted. If not wanted ,remove them.
*************

Restart your machine. Now hopefully you would not have any issues.

If you still want to use Morpheus, install it , install all the components and then try running it

All the best
