Error message when computer boots.......

Post by samiles1 on 28th February 2011, 8:23 pm

Hi, I just recently started getting an error message when my computer boots. It's "RUNDLL" and the message is:
Error loading C:\WINDOWS\mswmvcrt.dll
The specified module could not be found.

I bypass it so it hasn't caused any real problems yet but I wanted to inquire before it does. Thanks!

Sounds like malware to me. Wink

Since I posted, I went into my Start program and saw that there was a check next to a similar name, where it hadn't been before. I unchecked it and it hasn't been a problem since then.. If it happens again, I'll definitely come back to refer to this solution. Thanks so much for replying!
