can someone explain these errors to me?
My friend has these errors on his computer and he has no anti virus! when he tries to connect to the Internet he gets this error:C:doume~1\travis\locals\temp\wer27f.tmp.dir00\appcompat.txt and when he tries to do system restore he gets these errrors: C:docume~1\travis\locals\temp\wer282.tmp.dir00\appcompat.txt and C:\windows\system 32\6no4svc.dll and C:\windows\system 32\6no4svc.dll. any help would be appreciated thanx.

Those aren't errors, they're filenames. You'll have to give more information (screenshots maybe?) for us to figure out what is wrong.
I wish to express my gratitude to the people of Italy. Thank you for inventing pizza.

Amazing how a few seconds on Google found the answers for this:
Take a look at uninstalling this: VX2.BetterInternet Remover. Or better yet, run Adaware and AntiVirus (try using AVG) in SAFE MODE. This DLL -- 6no4svc.dll -- seems rather specific to the VX2 Bundleware, so that was easy to pick up.
appcompat.txt seems to be a file that is generated when applications crash so that one can troubleshoot the hows and whys of it. You can copy this file elsewhere and delete it from the path listed above (remember to enable the ability for the user to see all files and folders including hidden ones as I believe, IIRC, it's in a hidden directory. ). That said, it does seem related to this: Application Verifier.

A-ha! Which is when you should have paid Google a visit!
i only posted this when i got home....
So burn him a CD with all the goodies he needs, using the freeware that's out there:
he doesnt have AV or adaware or spybot or any of the things he should! but thanx for the help i will let him know
AVG <--- Antivirus
Hijackthis! <--- detect suspect Registry entries
Adaware <--- spyware detection
CWShredder <--- Cool Websearch Detection
Then, once he is connected, get him Mozilla or something other than IE and teach him how to use these utilities regularly. The CD Compilation can be a "toolkit" you can use to help others when asked.

i think 6no4svc.dll is a dll file that a spyware that gather information of the websites that you visit and then send the information to the server.
Follow the step that MsMittens have written.
And happy hunting :-)

What you're dealing with is spyware called "Look2Me" that basically tracks your surfing habits and sends them to a central server. Delete the following files and reg keys for manual removal...
Hope this helps.
