Xp Error message after Adaware Install and scan

  Alf58 22:05 15 May 2004

I have just installed Adaware 6 and allowed it scan my system and delete suspect files etc. Now at the end of the boot up sequence I get the following error message:

Error loading C:\WINDOWS\ Downloaded Program Files\bridge.dll
The specified module could not be found

I close the message and everything seems to run just fine so its not a major problem, its just annoying! Can anyone tell me how I can get rid of this irritating message? I am running Windows Xp Home edition on a Medion Pc 2.6GHz Pentium and 120 Gb Hard drive.

Start, Run, type in


and click OK. On the Startup tab, untick anything to do with bridge, OK your way out and restart.

Bridge is a particularly nasty piece of spyware so the above may not work.

Thanks for the response VoG I'll try your idea and report back.

I followed your advice and got the following message;

System Configuration Utility is currently in Diagnostic or Selective Startup mode, causing this message to be displayed and the utility to run every time Windows starts.

It advises me to choose Normal Startup mode on the General tab to start Windows normally and undo the changes I have made Using System Configuration Utility.

There is a tick box : Dont show this message or launch System Configuration Utility when Windows starts.

I have ticked this box and now the boot up is message free. I just feel a bit uneasy that I may have done something that could backfire on me at a later date. What are your thoughts?

If uneasy you could restore your files prior to the adaware scan. Launch adaware open quarantine list and restore. You can use the contan function first to note the constituent files.
