Hi again, helpful people. This error message has started appearing on my daughter's computer since I installed Ad-aware and Spybot (and got rid of a few nasties): RUNDLL: error loading C:WINDOWS/System32?bridge.dll - specified module could not be found.
I just click on the X and it goes and computer seems to work fine - but what is it?

bridge.dll is a spyware dll that has been removed but the software using it still calls upon it, or Windows does at startup.

Check what is running st startup via the MSConfig utility and see if there is anything that you may disable.

Start, Run, Type:

Click OK.

Click Startup, remove any checks to boxes that look like they are associated with bridge.dll.

Download, Install, Update and Run:

Seems it's spyware associated.
