A few days ago, everytime I turn on my computer its slow to startup. Its takes up to like 2-3 minutes. Once it is I get this notification saying:

"pptd40nt.exe - Unable to Locate Component

This application has failed to start because blicectr.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I've googled what this is and how to get rid of it but had no luck.

Someone, please help me fix this annoying little problem?

Thanks. =/

pptd40nt.exe is part of Scansoft PaperPort that runs at startup. If you do not use it you can remove it from your startup list. The file blicectr.dll is also part of PaperPort(, a driver I think). As the error message says, re-installing paperport should fix the problem.

Hope that helps! :thumbsup:
