    After uninstalling Lavasoft ad-aware program I still had ShellExt_64.dll remaining. I am told that having this file could cause problems. It seems to be impossible to delete this dll file any suggestions.

    I tried both suggestions, it doesn't show up in task manager and I can't delete it in safe mode. Thanks for the suggestions but I'm still looking for a solution.

    sounds like a real authentic system file to me.. something to do with the actual operating system.. shell type dll's are usually for compatibility these days rather than a desktop environment.. but by it's name it sounds like you run a 64 bit os.. in which case my best guess is it allows 32 bit things to run. never heard of it so I guess you are running that windoze 7 shite?
