I've just done a Google Search and nothing....

Try this

Start Menu, Run..., type MSCONFIG and hit enter.

Startup tab

Find an entry relating to CTRLPAN.DLL and un-check it.


This will stop the message but i can't find what CTRLPAN.DLL relates to. The problem is Windows is trying to start a file called CTRLPAN.DLL which doesn't exist on the PC. Thing is i can't find any other info on it!

click here download coolwebshredder and run it ensure you select next rather than just scan. This is the latest version of the cool websearch hijacker.

click here\.dll&st=15

the above post applies to Winnt but if you post on the boards there someone can help.

I KNEW I'd seen this before...

I think muppetmark has the answer. CWS should sort this... It look like the virus has gone but the start up entry is still in place - hence the error.

thank you all for the help, there was an entry in msconfig, which he unticked, then he downloaded CWS installed and run it, and now, no error messages, well, till next time..

thanks all again........nice one..
