Are you sure it's twmtglnl.ddl, and not twmtglnl.dll.

Either way, I can't find anything on it, which isn't a good sign.
I'm going to move your topic to the Am I infected Forum, and see if they can help you there.

Hello, Have you recently run tools to remove a malware? Is this an XP machine ?
How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

It's not unusual to receive such an error after using anti-virus and other security scanning 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.

should i delete all files that say that the file can not be found?

Only those you are getting errors when booting your computer. For startup items, in most cases "File not found" indicates orphan registry entries still present, but the executables are gone. You can safely delete them.

FAQ: Common Autoruns Issues - #13 Autoruns: What to uncheck and what not?

There is no such thing as the one and only golden rule of what you may disable and what you may not.

There is only one golden rule if you do not wish to render your system unbootable and useless:

If you do not know whether
+ an autorun programme
+ a service
+ a driver
is needed or not, leave it as it is

forum.sysinternals.com (read the entire thread)

is there anything i can do to make my computer run back to it's old speed

If your computer seems to be slow, read Slow Computer/Browser? Check here first; it may not be malware. There are reasons for slowness besides malware - i.e. disk fragmentation, disk errors, corrupt system files, too many startup programs, unnecessary services running, not enough RAM, dirty hardware components, etc. As your system gets older it becomes filled with more files/programs and has a natural tendency to slow down so cleaning and regular maintenance is essential.
