Hi there. When Windows XP opens (fully opens - desktop and start menu appear etc.), an error massage comes up saying:
RUN DLL ERROR
Error loading C:\Windows\System32\msiefr40.dll

Is this anything to worry about, as Windows seems to run fine if I just click OK and carry on as normal (although System Restore doesnt work, see my other post 'System Restore Wont Work')? Any reasons/help solvinng this? Thanks a lot in advance, Gavin

It's provably because you are infested with BrowserAid click here

'Google is My Friend' - sorry but I find the set of results overwhelming and being inexperienced, am unsure which instructions to follow, there are so many. I hope that there will be a simple solution that someone (usually you VoG!), will know. Thanks a lot, I am now reading those instructions, Gavin

Should Ad-Aware or Spy Bot do the removing for me?

I'm not moralising but if you stopped usinbg P2P programs like KaZaa, most of your problems would not have occurred....

According to my second "click here" then Ad-aware or spybot should work.

Yes sorry to bother you - I have now deleted my P2P programs, but am considering getting Kazaa Lite as I have heard that isnt as bad?

KaZaaLite is supposedly of parasites. Use at your own risk!

should have typed " supposedly free of"

Thanks a lot for the helpful, quick advice as ever from VoG, a job well done! I used VoG's instructions and now the message no longer comes up. Thanks again, Gavin
