Hi,

I have a startup error message I cannot get rid of, and am worried about it beings something sinister. I followed the instructions in the previous topic which suggested SDFix, but this has made no difference (SDFix report is after the HiJackThis report below):



Any ideas?

Marcbuck: I just had a similar problem with a different .dll error message.
Here is some info on yours>>>
Description: DLCCtime.dll is located in a subfolder of C:\Windows\System32. Known file sizes on Windows XP are 69632 bytes (50% of all occurrence), 73728 bytes.
The program has a visible window. There is no information about the maker of the file. It is a trustworthy file from Microsoft. The program is loaded during the Windows boot process (see Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run). File DLCCtime.dll is not a Windows core file. Therefore the technical security rating is 5% dangerous.

I was sick of seeing my error message come up at each start up, so here is what I did and it worked great>>>

Go to www.sysinternals.com and on the right side I clicked on (and make sure you only click on this one >>>

Run Autoruns now from Live.Sysinternals.com

download "Run AutoRuns Now" and after downloading it, it did not need to be installed, just ran it!

On the screen that came up I made sure the "Everything" tab was Selected and scrolled down and you should see the Error (in some form)

Then what I did was (and make sure you do this)>> UNCHECK Everything BUT the one I wanted to remove (I kept that checked) then I removed it and restarted the pc and it was gone for good. Hope this works for you too

It does look like this is a legitimate error message according to this site. The following is an excerpt from this site.

Purpose of this file:

DLCCtime.DLL is a program that may have been installed on your computer when you purchased it. The exact disk location where it should be stored on your computer is also shown below to verfiy it is not spyware, as many spyware programs use similiar names and just locate them elsewhere on your hard drive. Always check the proper disk location of your programs if you are concerned that they may be spyware or virus related software. This program is from Dell Computers, and it is a driver program for their Dell Printers. This will appear in your system startup, but if you don't have a Dell printer then you don't need this software running.This file is considered safe and is not virus or spyware related.

What is the dlcctime.dll location, where is it stored on my computer?
This file will be found on your hard drive and show in your startup as: rundll32 C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\DRIVERS\W32X86\3\DLCCtime.dll,_RunDLLEntry@16


Is this the location shown in your error message?

Look in the Device Manager and see if there are any errors, these will appear as a red X, a warning will appear as a yellow exclamation.

PM sent ref: removal of HJT log

I'd suggest following dc3's advice and uninstall/reinstall your Dell printer software.
If you don't need the printer stuff, uninstalling it should remove the error message.

In the event that this does not stop the error message, try the Sysinternals program mentioned by tomsbc

Thank you all for your help. Reinstalling the Dell printer driver worked just fine - thank you!
