    Glmlbact.exe keeps trying to load
    I keep getting this message that says that glmlbact.exe failed to initialize because ace.dll could not be found.

    Some guy that came to our office to beef up our security said that it was a virus that he removed and now it keeps trying to start but since its gone, it cant... and he left it at that.

    Unfortunately, this thing pops up like 500 times a day... before he did this, I didn't seem to have any problems.

    I have searched for this program and I can't find it. But I do find the things that Microsoft makes of these files so they will load faster... I don't know .sf or something like that

    Any ideas??

    Looks like a spyware try to replicate itself. First you can try to download SPYBOT and install it to see it finds any spyware. If not you might have to find it manually, if the message starts right at the beginning. The file might be in your start up registry.
    Go to start -> run and enter msconfig
    Select startup tab scroll down to see if anything relate to glmlbact.exe then uncheck it.

    It is either Spyware with a "tie" to some startup program, or it's possibly a virus.
    Run you Virus scan in SafeMode, at least twice, then reboot.
    After re-booting, run the following:

    If you think you already have Spyware/Advertising Ware in your computer, run these as follows:

    AdAware at:
    Download: AdAware_SE V 1.06

    SpyBot Search & Destroy V 1.4
    The home of Spybot-S&D!
    All of the above programs run better and much faster when run in SafeMode.

    To get into SafeMode:
    Re-boot the computer, and immediately after starting up, Press and hold down, F8, at top of keypad.
    When the options show on the screen, use the up and down arrow keys on the keyboard to select
    "Safe Mode".
    Press Enter

    It's best to run the AdAware scan first; 3 times; then re-boot.
    Then, run the AdAware scan again 3 times. Then, run SpyBot, and then CWShredder.
    Re- Boot.
    Reason for running so many times:
    Some of these trojans' files can be deleted the first time; leaving some others; but on re-boot, they re-write the files that were deleted.
    Running multiple times deletes most of it the first

    If you wish to have a great program, after you clean out Spyware/Advertising Ware, it's called SpyWare Blaster.
    This program stops this stuff from getting into the computer in the first place, by placing URL's in the browser, stopping them instantly. One of the Very Best free programs anyone can download! Updates of AntiSpyware Definitions are available on almost a weekly basis. I have not had ANY spyware since using this program... really no need for spyware scans anymore.

    SpyWare Blaster 3.5
    SpywareBlaster Update Available

    Free online scan at:
    Free Online Spyware Scan - Trend Micro™

    Best of luck. If the above doesn't clear it up, please post back.
