Hello computer boffins, a DLL file has appeared on my PC from the Net, it appears after I switch on the pc, on the Desktop page in a little window, it reads: RUNDLL Error loading C:\Docume-1\CYRUSP-1\LOCALS-1\Temp\MetacafeDllDownloader.dll The specified module could not be found.
Could anyone please help me to find this file and delete it from my pc?
If you read the message careful it says "Error loading" and" module could not be found". This means the file C:\Docume-1\CYRUSP-1\LOCALS-1\Temp\MetacafeDllDownloader.dll is missing and Windows is trying to load it and can't find it.
First Start, Run.., type MSCONFIG and hit enter, go to the Startup tab and try to find the entry with MetacafeDllDownloader.dll in it. Untick it, click Ok and reboot when prompted.
I think that's what has happened! I attempted to download a file from Metacalfe, then my Zonealarm Security Suite informed me that I would be downloading from an unknown publisher & therefore pose a potential risk to my PC, so I immediately cancelled the download before I had even started. I've clicked on your link & connected to Metacalfe, but where do I go from there?
I found the problem thanks to you, I followed your instructions, found the Startup menu under my own name & located the file which was called Metacalfe Downloader shortcut 4kb, & promptly deleted it. Thanks again, & thanks to all for their feedback. Mission accomplished!
