    When my computer restarts I get the following display box:

    RUNDLL
    Error loading C:\Windows\itifecuj.dll
    The specified module could not be found

    How can I fix this. What does it mean. My computer seems to be working ok.

    Any thoughts greatly appreciated.

    Its trying to start a process at boot which is not working. Since google returns no results with 'itifecuj.dll', id be a little concerned. Did you install/uninstall anything recently? You may also want to run a virus scan.

    I ran an AVG scan in addition to Spybot, Adaware, Malwarebytes, etc., anything I could think of.

    Still keeps coming up.

    Can't find anything anywhere regarding that specific .dll, might you have removed some sort of software program recently that deleted that without doing a complete job.

    So, is it safe to say that my system is OK.

    How can I get rid of the pop up on restart?

    Thanks

    ^^^ How 'bout answering this question.


    Another question that can't be answered until the file is identified.



    Are you sure this is the file name?

    I don't think I deleted anything recently that I remember, and yes, that is the name of the file that comes up in the window.

    I Googled the file name, but nothing came up.

    Did you uninstall anything?
    Are you running XP?

    I'm running XP. I don't recall uninstalling anything around the time I started getting the window message.

    Malwarebytes can be downloaded with a random name generated. This it to protect it from certain malware that knows to look for Malarebytes. It could be a remnant from that but I doubt it.

    If this were the case I think you would know. It's not something you do randomly.

    I would run a complete virus scan. It can sometimes take a bit of detective work and inference to judge whether it's a recent remnant of a removed/deleted program.



    If all else fails shoot it :tongueout:

    Orphaned registry key from old Malware. Open up regedit and navigate to

    HKEY local_machine > software > microsoft > windows > current_version > run and delete they key. If it is not there look in
    HKEY current_user > software > microsoft > windows > current versions > run

    This, or maybe it's time to reinstall your OS? Or use a restore point to a time prior to the issue.

    This.

    Is your Windows updates all up to date? You have Service Pack3 installed?
