How can I fix Run Time error Addon2VB.DLL?

Question

I installed SpySweeper. It found 2008 traces. I deleted everything in quarentine. Now I get a Run Time error" 48 " Addon2VB.DLL when I try to play my eGames. None of them will work now. Can I get it back. I checked recover but this DLL was not listed in the recovery items. I can not reinstall because I did not bring disks to AZ with me. Can you help? Is this spy sweeper a bad thing to have ? My pc was getting so slow./ Bonnie

You might have to reinstall your eGames to correct the issue

Here's how to properly install or reinstall a game (and patch):

Step A: Temporarily disable Startup programs one at a time, starting with

Firewall, Antivirus & AdBlockers using this method:

http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=331796 or this utility:

http://new.jtsoft2001.com/windows/startup.php Reboot, go to Step B

Step B: In Control Panel / Add-Remove Programs, delete the game and then

the game's folder especially if you previously experienced problems

with a patch, or if you installed the Trial, Mods, NO CD patches, etc

Note: Click Start to Search or Find your game Many times there are two installs

of the same game on a system and the patch installs to the wrong one Also if you

installed a Trial version of the game, this could be causing a conflict. Uninstall it

and delete the folder

Step C: Install and Run Regcleaner and if it finds any stray registry keys for the

game, delete them Reboot your computer, and then re-install the game

Regcleaner Download: http://www.majorgeeks.com/download460.html

Step D: Play a single player game, using an administrators account if necessary

Step E: Download new game patches or mods in case the old ones are corrupt

Double click the patch/mod to install it If it's a .zip file, unzip it into the

game's folder and follow the instruction in it's readme.txt file

Step F: Reboot your computer, verify that your game is working properly, and

re-enable any programs that you disabled using the method in Step A
