Error Message on Startup

When I start my pc I get the following message...

Error Loading C:\PROGRA~1\NEWDOT~1\NEWDOT 2
The specified module could not be found

What does this mean and what can I do to get rid of it please? Simple terminology please!

What operating system are you using. Looks like something loading in config.sys or autoexec bat with Win95 or Win98.
The ~ is present because dos names can only have eight characters so the end of the Windows name is truncated to ~1 or ~2 etc.

I am using Windows XP. I can't really understand all the technical jargon you use. Please talk to me like I'm 5 years old! Thanks

I think it's spyware. If you haven't already installed them download Spybot and Adaware and run them.
