Hi, every time I start up I get Two boxes saying error loading. One says D:\WINDOWS\system32\NvMcTray.dll the specified module could not be found, and the other says the same but it's the \NvCpl.dll that was missing. Thoguht it was something to do with my Nvidia drivers and tried re-installing them but it failed to install. Everything seems to be running OK but I want to get these things fixed. Any ideas?

Try running msconfig and look in the Start Up box to see if those two items are ticked. If so untick them - if all is running well then you should have no problem

Well that got rid of the McTray one but not the other.

Then you could try just unregistering it This works as well, typed from Start>Run:

regsvr32 /u nvcpl.dll

Note the spaces, set a Restore Point first just in case this does not work.

OK, when I tried run and then pressed OK I got Load Library (nvcpl.dll)failed. The specified module could not be found. Any Ideas what that means?

That backs up the initial problem that nvcpl.dll doesn't exist.

That is an NVidia dll so I assume you have or had an NVidia graphics card.

If you have it then consider downloading the driver(s) again or looking for NVidia in MsConfig and stopping it from starting.

nvcpl is for the NVidia Control Panel icon and its associated activities. It has either not installed correctly or has been corrupted. I would download the latest drivers for your card into a file where you know where they are, then boot into Safe Mode and uninstall the existing drivers. Install the new driver from the file you made and re-boot. See if that fixes it.

OK, uninstalled the drivers, rebooted and then downloaded and re-installed, problem solved, thanks for the help.

Good news, you can tick as resolved then.
