Note The signature may list one of the following files instead of the mo030414s.dll file:
  • M030106shop.dll
  • M030206pohs.dll
  • Mdefshop.dll
  • Moaa030425s.dll
  • Moz030715s.dll


This problem occurs because one of the following browser helper objects (BHO) is installed on your computer:
  • BuyersPort
  • Morpheus
  • Morpheus Shopping Club
  • WURLD Shopping Community
Additionally, you logged on to the computer with a limited user account. The BHO tries to modify certain system files and Windows Registry entries that require administrative credentials to access. As a result, when the BHO cannot access these files and registry entries, Internet Explorer stops abruptly.


To resolve this problem, remove the BHO from your computer. For information about how to remove the BHO, contact the manufacturer of the program.
