BSOD: DllRegister failed with the error 0x80040201 is a SCAM!
If you get a browser window with the headline: BSOD: DllRegister failed with the error 0x80040201. First of all this is a scam, Scam, SCAM, you more than likely don’t have a virus. The toll free number 0-800-830-3015 is a scammers number who will ask you to download a remote support program and then they are on your PC and have control of it.
Web address of this scam is: https://s3.amazonaws.com/uk01/index.html?num=0-800-830-3015&c=Muthblue (if you want to see this go to this URL but you need to copy and paste it into a browser (You do so at your own risk))
DO NOT PHONE THE NUMBER IN THE PAGE OR POPUP
To get rid of this all you need to do is Press Control + Alt + Delete and go to Task manager and end the browser program which is currently running this. There is an audio track on the page which will urge you to phone the number but don’t!
If you are worried about your machine being infected then might I suggest you download and run Malwarebytes from https://www.malwarebytes.org/ or Spybot – Search and destroy from https://www.safer-networking.org/dl/
Again this is a Con and you should not phone the number.
The text in the browser window reads as follows and should give you a good idea of why this is a scam. It doesn’t read as proper English with many grammatical errors.
The link on the clients PC’s I’ve seen it on one of those Facebook adverts “You wont believe what she did” or “This girl is amazing and you can be like here” type links. Don’t click them folks as there no good.

A Trojan Horse, or Trojan, in computing is a non-self-replicating type of malware program containing malicious code that, when executed carries out actions determined by the nature of the Trojan, typically causing loss or theft of data, and possible system harm.
