Im getting 3 error messages
On start up "error laoding c:\windows\system\ctrlpan.dll" appears
On accessing files on my floppy disk
"an illegal operation has been performed"
followed by
"run time error program c:\windows\winlogon.exe"
comes up which then locks up my system
Ive tried rebooting with a start up and recovery disk but it sticks at the a:\ prompt and won't budge
Please can anyone help Ive been given various explanations from missing dll files faulty motherboard/a drive to a virus.All the checks Ive done dont show any of these.Im running windows 98 as my os Thanks, Jes

CTRLPAN.DLL - You had a virus but now its gone - click here Windows is still trying to load it but can't. Use the link to remove the command..

back up your registry before doing the following.

start>run>regedit>on left panel clicktwice on hkey_local_machine>software>microsoft>windows>currentversion>run. on right panel delete control="rundll32.exe%system\ctrlpan.dll,restore control panel" this should stop the error c:: windows\system\ctrlpan.dll
