DLL problem after uninstalling printer

  Pineman100 14:07 16 Mar 2007

I run Windows XP SP2 Home.

I've just got rid of my Dell 922 multifunction printer/scanner/copier. After disconnecting the device, I uninstalled the Dell software using Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. At the end of this process I restarted the computer.

On booting up to the desktop, I received the following report:-

Error loading C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\DLBTtime.dll
The specified module could not be found.

I now get this report whenever I boot up the computer.

Can anyone please tell me whether I should worry about this, and how to resolve it?

Many thanks.

Or use CCCleaner.

Use the Issues tab; you will probably also be surprised at what else is superfluous.

It's definitely listed in msconfig>Startup, although it has a suffix that follows the location that I typed above, as follows:

...DLBTtime.dll,[email protected]

I presume that's the same thing? I'll untick it from the startup list as suggested. What happens then? Should I just leave it on the list for evermore, or should I delete it (or is that dangerous?).

Or, if I use CCCleaner, can I rely on it never recommending deletion anything that's important?

Many thanks again.

... that's pretty much my concern, too. I did use CCCleaner some time ago, and while I'm sure it's a perfectly good little application, I seem to remember that it wanted my approval before deleting anything.

Since I'm not knowledgeable enough to know what most of the deletion candidates were, I tended to play safe and refuse permission!

Anyway, on the same premise, I think I'll just untick the item in Startup and leave it to rot.

Thanks again to everyone for your help. Much appreciated.
