Your computer could not boot even after click on the OK.

After that you will get the same error again and your computer will hang.

What’s happened?

Your computer is infected by MSLS52 Trojan.

Recently your antivirus detected and remove %SysDir%\msls52.dll.

VirusTotal Report: msls52.dll

Result: 17/40 (42.50%)
Antivirus Version Last Update Result
a-squared 2010.06.24 Packed.Win32.Katusha!IK

AntiVir 2010.06.24 TR/PCK.Katusha.O.24
Antiy-AVL 2010.06.24 Packed/Win32.Katusha

But your antivirus did not detect the changes made by Trojan in the UXTHEME.DLL.

The infected UXTHEME.DLL loads the msls52.dll.

The simple way for resolving the problem: use boot CD.

The good choice is “RegRun Warrior“.

You will find the  “%SysDir%\uxtheme.dll~RF31166.TMP” (or with similar name)  backed up by virus .

Rename “uxtheme.dll~RF31166c.TMP” to the “uxtheme.dll”.

The Warrior boot CD includes the best file manager (Far Manager) that automatically displays hidden files.

Restart your computer and continue your good day!
