Thank you for taking your time to look into my problem! :thumbsup:

You see, when I boot up my brand new laptop, I get these two messages:

I would like to apologize beforehand. I am using the danish translated Microsoft Windows XP Professional; Version 2002; Service Pack 3.
I will translate to the best of my ability.

"Error while loading E:\WINDOWS\system32\fmniqhhh.dll

The given module was not found."

"Error while loading E:\WINDOWS\system32\uarhjyh.dll

The given module was not found."


I'm pretty sure I got the "given module" part wrong, but it's clear enough, right?

I have no idea what to do! Is there a kind soul who will lend me a hand, out there? Thanks!

Hi :thumbsup:.

First...why is your O/S on an E: partition?

What do you mean when you say that you might have deleted whatever? It would help if we knew what those files that are cited...are.

Why not simply do a repair install of XP?

Or run sfc /scannow?

Finally...have you scanned for malware? Those references could be an indication.

If you've recently removed some viruses/malware from your system, those could be references to it trying to start (but not being able to). This is often caused by an incomplete removal of the malware.

You can remove the startups using Autoruns (free here: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx ). Just uncheck the items that tell those DLL's to start (and reboot to see if it's worked).

I'd also suggest that you perform a few, free, online scans to ensure that you've gotten rid of all the malware:
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)

Hello! :flowers:

I don't know why my O/S is on an E: partition! It was like that when I bought my laptop! I know it's strange and I have had many problems with this already. Nothing much though...

I mean that I have somehow deleted two .dll files. I provided screenshots of the error messages, because I thought you could tell me what the files are. I have no idea what they are or what their function is! I just boot and the errors appear. I click ok, and nothing happens after that. They're just annoying!

Repair Installation? I didn't know I could do that! If I do a Repair Installation, will I have to backup any data? 'Cause I have nothing to back it up with!

I followed the instructions in the article and I am now running sfc /scannow! I will report back after reboot! Thank you so far!

Will scan for malware after reboot! Report will follow!

Thank you Louis! :thumbsup:

Edit: It didn't work! If I do a Repair Installation, will I need to backup data? I think I'll try the repair! See ya!

I'm sorry for reviving this topic, but I need an answer! If I repair install my O/S, will I need to backup any data?

Please respond! Thanks!

IMO...anyone who uses a system without conducting periodic, routine backups...is asking for trouble.

The unexpected occurs every day in life...that's the premise behind making routine backups.

Does that answer your question?

E:\WINDOWS\system32\fmniqhhh.dll and E:\WINDOWS\system32\uarhjyh.dll are not valid Windows files. Please reread Usasma's post and try his suggestion

Alright! I admit that I didn't read Usasma's post! But now I have, and I downloaded a trial version of Kaspersky Internet Security. I ran it and now everything is in order! Thank you, everyone! Thank you, Usasma! :thumbsup: :flowers: :trumpet:
