What are the errors you are experiencing? Do your anti-virus and anti-spyware scans come up clean?

Like: C:\WINDOWS\system32\LCQUI.dll was not found, may not be exact but it's similar to it.

If your getting this error on startup, the file is probably an orphaned entry related to a program (or malware) that was set to run at startup. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file may have been removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan, the uninstall of a program or use of a specialized fix tool. However, an associated registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

Download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if your not sure how to do this.)
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
  • Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file in the error message.
  • Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

Download regsrch.zip and save it to your desktop.
(click on the "hard drive" icon halfway down the page)
  • Extract (unzip) the file to your desktop. (click here if your not sure how to do this)
  • Double-click on RegSrch.vbs to start the script.
  • If you get an alert from your anti-virus about scripting, choose to allow the script to run.
  • In the "Enter search string (case insensitive)..." box, copy and paste this string:

LCQUI.dll

  • Click OK.
  • Wait for a few minutes while it completes the search.
  • Click "OK" to open the results in WordPad.
  • Copy and past the contents of that logfile in your next reply.

Scan with SUPERAntiSpyware as follows:

  • On the left, make sure you check C:\Fixed Drive.
  • On the right, under "Complete Scan", choose Perform Complete Scan and click "Next".
  • After the scan is complete, a Scan Summary box will appear with potentially harmful items that were detected. Click "OK".
  • Make sure everything has a checkmark next to it and click "Next".
  • A notification will appear that "Quarantine and Removal is Complete". Click "OK" and then click the "Finish" button to return to the main menu.
  • If asked if you want to reboot, click "Yes" and reboot normally.
  • To retrieve the removal information after reboot, launch SUPERAntispyware again.
    • Click Preferences, then click the Statistics/Logs tab.
    • Under Scanner Logs, double-click SUPERAntiSpyware Scan Log.
    • If there are several logs, click the current dated log and press View log. A text file will open in your default text editor.
    • Please copy and paste the Scan Log results in your next reply.

Are you still getting the error? If so, exactly what does it say?

I can't find any info on that file but it appears to be related to Logitech. Was there a startup entry in Autoruns for Logitray.exe?

This sounds like an issue that would better be addressed by Logitech Support. I don't know enough about all their specific software and I don't want you to loose any functionality in your programs.

They also have a Troubleshooting site which you can try first, but more than likely one of their support techs will have the info you need.
