AppData\Local\PLAYTO~1\Updater.dll error

This question is not answered

I have Windows 7, Alienware Aurora R2 64bitOS, I figured I had a virus and ran Anitware. Now I get AppData\Local\PLAYTO~1\Updater.dll error and brs.exe MSVCR71.dll error.

I'm not really sure how to fix these? I'm up to date on service packs, windows updates, Norton 360, have run system chk, and not sure what my next step should be?

  • A system restore can also help you to fix the problem. Or maybe you should try AlienRespawn.
