Run a scan with your antivirus and antispyware programs.

Thanks, I have done this several times and the errors still appear?

Check your startup programs in msconfig, there's something in there that shouldn't be. Have you tried to install anything just before the problem started?

the message implies that Windows was expecting to find a file but that file is no longer there.

Have you recently removed an infected file/program using av or anti-malware programs?

As MAJ says, something is trying to run, but cannot find this dll, and neither can I. A Google search comes up blank.

You can try downloading this click here Its a bit more thorough than msconfig and may help you.

Can you post the text of the other error messages too please?

Thank you all -Rahere, I suspect is right -- I have removed infected files etc recently -- the other errors are exactly the same path, i will just list the end of the path as follows

Thanks cchelp

I'd guess these are the remnants of the infection.

Download and install CCleaner click here

boot into safe mode and Run ccleaner's built in registry cleaner before we do anything more drastic..
