    I'm getting the following error message upon startup and also can't get Windows Media Player to launch ever since:

    Error Loading C:\WINDOWS\System32\bridge.dll

    I have run AdAware6.0 as instructed and here is the log file from HiJackThis:

    Then reboot into safe mode and delete:
    C:\Program Files\SEP <= entire folder

    Then (still in safe mode) use the Disk Cleanup Utility to empty all your Temp folders.

    Follow the instructions here for WMP: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=28027

    Regards,

    Pieter
