Thank you for contributing. We know you did not mean harm.  What you posted was fine except for the Reg Cleaner.
In the future to Back up the registry use ERUNT
 
We need to run a registry backup with ERUNT: Before we continue making any changes to your machine, we need to back up your current registry configuration.
  • Click here to open the download page for ERUNT
  • Scroll down to the Download ERUNT: section and choose a download server for erunt-setup.exe
  • Save the file to your desktop
  • Run erunt-setup.exe to install the application on your computer
  • Click Next on each screen accepting the defaults, click Install
  • Choose whether or not to run ERUNT at startup (recommended)
  • Untick Show Documentation and click Finish to launch ERUNT (it can also be run from Start > Program Files > ERUNT > ERUNT)
  • Click Ok on the dialog box, select the folder for ERUNT to backup to (default recommended) (a warning might appear if the folder does not exist, click yes to create it)
  • ERUNT will run and a message will notify that you that the backup is complete
Note: alternatively you can run the version without an installer by downloading erunt.zip, extracting the contents to a directory of your choice, and running ERUNT.EXE

I had the same problem after uninstalling the Freecoder Toolbar from my computer and was able to get rid of the "backgroundcontainer.dll" error message by deleting the conduit folder that contains the backgroundcontainer.dll from C:\users\username\appdata\low\conduit\background.dll but you must first run "autoruns" which you can get from (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx).After downloading "autoruns" run the application and follow these steps, start "autoruns" and go to the  "Scheduled Tasks" tab and look for and delete the "backgroundcontainer" entry then go to C:\users\username\appdata\low\ and delete the "conduit" folder which contains the "backgroundcontainer.dll".Note if you do not delete the Scheduled Tasks backgroundcontainer entry first you will not be allowed to delete the "conduit" folder.

The OP has already used Autoruns several times...scheduled task items will show in the Everything tab when using "Find" to perform a search.

 

But thanks for the suggestion.

I have ran some of the tests and got some different logs but I still get the error when I boot up c:\users\Johnnie\AppData\Local\Conduit\BackgroundContainer\BackgroundContainer.dll.  I know exactly what is causing the error now... If I go into my "System Configuration" and DO NOT load the "Windows Event Log" I do not get the error.  I have looked at the Windows Event Log until I am cross-eyed and I see nothing about CONDUIT, BACKGROUND, CONTAINER, BACKGROUNDCONTAINER OR BACKGROUNDCONTAINER.DLL  Based on this information does anyone have any ideas??  Thanks in advance

There are several ways to fix the RunDll BackgroundContainer.dll start up error.

You can download AutoRuns and save it to your Desktop.
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there.
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When finished scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom and list all entries under the Everything tab.
  • In the top menu, click File > Find... and type the file name (backgroundcontainer.dll) related related to the error message, then click Find Next.
  • Alternatively, you can scroll through the list and look for any entry related to conduit and backgroundcontainer.dll.
  • If found, right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Exit Autoruns and reboot your computer when done.
An alternate way to resolve this issue is as follows:
1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
2. Open Task Scheduler and click on Task Scheduler Library.
3. Look through the list for an entry related to BackgroundContainer.
4. If found, right-click on it and select Delete.
5. Exit all programs and reboot the computer when done.

Note: If you are using WinPatrol, launch the program or right-click on Scotty's system tray icon and choose "Display Scheduled Tasks". Under this tab, you can remove any scheduled task entry by right-clicking on the entry and selecting "Remove" from the context menu.

Other Conduit related files also known to cause this error: TBVerifier.dll, TBHostSupport.dll

Some folks have reported success doing it this way.
1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
2. Open Task Scheduler and click on Task Scheduler Library.
3. Look through the list for an entry related to BackgroundContainer.
4. If found, right-click on it and select Delete.
5. Exit all programs and reboot the computer when done.

Thanks for this quietman7. I had the same problem as the OP and this advice solved it.

It really makes you feel good when people are correcting problems without downloading some file for FREE that costs an arm and a leg if you want it to help you, and meanwhile you have downloaded 42 other things you DID NOT want.  Thanks to Bleepin' Janitor and the good people at Bleepin' Computers.
