Odd start up message

  Tigertops 11:36 08 Nov 2006

Have just installed Microsoft Internet Explorer 7. Now during start up I get a message entitled 'SmartBridgeAlerts BT HelpNotifier.exe Entry point not found' and underneath the heading

'The procedure entry point GetProcessImageFileName could not be found in the dynamic link libraryPSAPI.DLS.

If I cancel all proceeds as normal. I have no idea what the message means or how to get rid of it. Any suggestions please?

BT and some NTL broadband users have experienced error message like "SmartBridge Alerts:-Alert BT Help Notifier.exe (or MotiveSB.exe for NTL) Entry Point Not Found The procedure entry point GetProcessImageFileNameW could not be located in the dynamic link library PSAPI.DLL"
This relates to the BT (or NTL) desktop helper. The simplest way to deal with it is to uninstall it if you do not use it or take it out of your start up list. The program name will be something like Motive Communications or Motive SB. Alternatively, 1. Navigate to the installation location for SmartBridge via My Computer (\Program Files\Alert BT Help Notifier.exe (or Motive SBexe.)
2. Find PSAPI.DLL and rename it to something like PSAPIOLD.DLL
3. Reboot the system

The program will find the new PSAPI.DLL in the \Windows\System32 directory and function normally.

Or, if you have Spybot Search and Destroy use their start up control tool.
