RUNDLL. Error loading C:/windows/system32/msa64chk

when starting XP Home, erh the end of this line is a .dll Dynamic link file.

msa64chk rings a bell but google search reveals ask the experts forum with a charge or foreign lanugage.

Can any tell me what and hot to fix please.

click here Not sure on this but it seems to relate to a dialler from the info on this link. The link provides a scanner to cure the problem.

click here also provides a download to fix. Before trying both of the above have you run a free on-line scan from here? it will remove any spyware it finds. click here It will ask to download a scan engine, click yes and select the drive you want to scan and fix.

MSA64CHK.DLL description:
File MSA64CHK.DLL is related to dialer 123Messenger. File MSA64CHK.DLL is related to dialer Mostrar Dialer.

I found this,it looks like your PC has been clobbered by a dialer(file that alters the number your modem dials,usually connects the PC to a premium rate number)

Thanks for confirming the dialler. I thought it was but not absolutely sure. j.

The link you found was same as mine Djohn,I'm not sure if the SpyhunterS.exe file will actually do as it says,some software claims to remove spyware,yet actually installs further spyware.

Will the third link to Trend-Micro find and fix it Chegs ® ?

I didn't think "Housecall" found dialers/spyware,only trojans/virus(but I have been wrong before)

will try, CW Shredder, Spybot, Hijack This tools.

Thing is I need to sleep now but will get on it tomorrow and feed back.

Thanks for the http's M8's " Djohn & Chegs ® "

Will call back.

Since your system can't load it, it has already been removed (but your system is still trying to load it at boot up). Did the message start appearing after running anti-spyware software?

It may have an entry in msconfig that you can uncheck, or alternatively run a registry cleaner such as RegScrubXP click here

Other spyware removal software may remove it too.
