Procedure Entry Point Not Found
» Originally Outlook.exe was affected, now pdu.exe, GPS-Updater.exe, and GoogleToolbarNotifier.exe all say The Procedure Entry Point anceCounter could not be located in the dynamic link library API-MS-Win-Core-Synch-L1-1-0.dll. Maybe this issue is more than Outlook related.
An exe file (pronounced as letters E-X-E) is a computer file that ends with the extension ".exe", known as an executable file. When one clicks on an exe file, a built-in routine automatically executes code that can set several functions into motion. Exe files are used to install and run programs and routines.
An exe file is just one of several file format types that are recognized by various operating systems. Text files, which are files that do not generate code but simply display text, end in txt. Microsoft Word saves files with the doc extension, short for document. Another common file type is the compressed or zipped file, which uses the zip extension.
The exe file runs programs, it is thus one of the most useful types of files, but this also makes it potentially harmful. It can be used as a carrier for viruses or other malicious programs(TrojanDownloader:Win32/Vundo.J). If one clicks on a malicious exe file, over the next several hours or days the computer might become unstable. Often the user does not relate the problem back to the cause and attributes it to other factors, such as the need to defragment or replace a disk. Personal information or password keystrokes might be handed over to an unknown website without knowledge of the user, or the machine might delete its own files and crash altogether. Any of these scenarios and more can be set in motion by simply clicking on a 'bad' exe file.
Because of the potential harm, when downloading any exe file, it's a good idea to scan it with a reputable virus scanner before clicking on it. Exe files are generally not meant to be edited, and changing an exe's file size will render it inoperable. It is better to defend than being offended. Experts recommend keeping virus checkers up to date and deleting email from unknown sources. If you receive an exe file from someone you trust, scan it first before clicking on it. Even files that appear to be coming from reputable sources can be used maliciously by third parties without the source's knowledge.
For all the .exe file related problems caused by adware, worms, viruses, Trojan, spyware and malware, such as slow pc, high usage of CPU/memory, system crashes and so on, DLL Suite will be the best solution for you to troubleshoot and remove the exe virus infection automatically.
