Ok, at some point i got an IKL.dll on my computer, i removed it via restoring the computer to a earlier time (a few days), and now when i start my computer up i get an error message saying, "Error loading C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IKL\IKL.dll, the specified module could not be found." I dont think that any IKL spyware is actually still infecting/keylogging my computer, I'd just feel better if i didn't have an error about one every time i start my computer.

I've tried registry cleaning, and I've scanned my computer with both Ad-Aware and Norton Anti-Virus and the error still pops up every time i start my computer.

Later??? you can't really restore your computer to a later, it's earlier. Ad-Aware isn't much help. Spyware Doctor from the Google pack (not official site) is better. Run a cleaning tool. I checked my computer for it... I don't have it and some people don't have it and I don't get a message. Try wise disk cleaner for removal of junk. Also google it. :thumbsup: It also has not much to do with malware.

I believe it will take more than system restore or updates

If you are sure it's removed...what's probably happening is that XP is trying to run a startup item that no longer exists.

You can use a program like AutoRuns for Windows v8.73 - http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/AutoRuns.mspx
to disable or remove the marker triggering the attempted launch.

I would just look on the Logon tab, too much miscellaneous info on the tab that lists everything.

"Error loading C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\IKL\IKL.dll, the specified module could not be found."

This error message says that Windows could not load IKL.dll because it could not be found - and that's because you've removed it. As hamluis suggests, you can use Autoruns to eliminate this error message.

BUT!!! This does not mean that your system is no longer infected!!! I'd suggest running several of these free, online scanners to be sure:

Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully:
