winmm.dll error as result from virus

Post by cooperlaurenj on 23rd June 2012, 1:44 pm

Had a virus on my dell inspiron 1545 and it seems to have gone however im now having an error message appear when I try to open several programs including media player saying theres a problem with winmm.dll

ive manually replaced the file with a new one from dllfiles.com but still having the error??
Its really limiting what I can do on the computer.. plus theres a problem with my windows security essentials saying that my copy of windows isnt genuine and to perform a validation check (which says it IS genuine?!) but still wont work.
Dont know if thats connected to the winmm problem?

Please help!
ps im a computer novice so i get easily confused!!

Thanks
