airfoilinject3.dll error

When ever i try to launch an program i get an error saying "This application has failed to start because C:\WINDOWS\system32\AirfoilInject3.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."
I have searched my computer for this file but i cannot find it. Any help would be great.

I tried the filename in Google and among others found this link click here
It would seem to have spyware connections, but look for yourself for the significant details.

the other thing i find odd is that i have a program called desktops which lets me have 4 virtual desktops. When i open another desktop all programs open without any trouble also desktops was running before this error message kept displaying.

All very strange, but I would download and run a full scan with Malwarebytes a.s.a.p. (A freebie and good at its work).

You DO have an up to date AV program running in the background I hope?

It is rather strange.

Thanks for your help
