Yesterday I downloaded a programme and was greeted shortly afterwards with an AVG warning that I had a Trojan Horse Dialer.17.E infecting my computer.AVG took care of this, and as a safeguard I did further checks, which all informed me that everything was now fine.

Since the problem, on start-up I have a message that informs RUNDLL. Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\NEWDOT~1\NEWDOT~1.DLL This specified module could not be found.

Advice would be very welcome as to what I can or should do to correct the problem.What is that particular module, and how important is it.

Santos7-- Thanks for the extra link, some very interesting information and advice.

I have used the various instructions to remove the offender, going through procedures 1 to 3, but on start-up I still have the error message appear. Any suggestions on how to remove that from the system!.

The annoying thing is that I still do not know how the offender was downloaded, and according to the information in the second link, the NewDotNet seems to have blame for a number of problems.Looks like I will need to contact the company for more information.Having things hidden away in the system can be very alarming as to what they may or may not do.

Start, Run, type

msconfig

and click OK. Does it show up in the list on the Startup tab?

Vog-- Yes it appears in the Startup list, I assume that you untick box, then click apply. Is that correct!.

That's correct. You will then be prompted to restart your PC.

When it restarts you will see a dire warning that you are running in selective startup mode. Just tick the box that says don't tell me about this again, and all should now be well.

A little strange this one. Didn't get the prompt for restart, but did a restart anyway. Original error message now seems to have dissappeared.

Fingers crossed, let's hope that as solved the problem. Thanks SANTOS7 and VoG for the advice and help given.
