When I start windows I receive the following error message: Error Loading C:\WINDOWS\system32\pvridudt.dll Access is denied. "then an option to click" OK

I would like to eliminate this error message as it is super annoying. I cannot say what or if it is affecting anything else.

I attached a screen shot.

NO replies and only 4 looks. Does this mean I have a tough problem?

What it may mean...is that your error message has no Google references, making it difficult for anyone to find reference material on same.

Is the message spelled properly?

Well...if you consider possible malware a "prize", you may have it :thumbsup:.

Generally, when there is an error message and there are absolutely no references to it...there's a good chance that malware is involved and it's not a genuine Windows or program item.

Just my opinion...

We do have personal lives to attend to
I would suspect malware also. Better off to post here:

Did you run any anti-virus or anti-malware scans recently? It's not unusual to receive such an error after using tools to remove malware infection.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, 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 you're 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(s) in the error message.
  • Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

Seeing as how you make this comment without even waiting one hour from your first post in this thread. And this forum is visited by 'experts' from around the world. Meaning that it might be common courtesy to wait 24 hours for everyone to have a chance to see your post. I highly doubt you have stumped everyone of them, worldwide. But your lack of patience and insinuations that we are not fast enough in attending to your needs, has likely caused many of them to rethink possibly helping you.
