After I used Malwarebytes Antimalware Program I had gotten rid of all of these resycled boot. com problems and the Windows update worked once again except for one hard drive still had the resycled boot com problem. Then I read somewhere to download delete Dr. (spelled "deletedr".exe.)if you type that into your search engine it will take you to the web site that you can download delete Dr. from . so like I said I downloaded delete Dr. and I followed the instructions and I deleted "resycled boot com ". now when I click on my D: drive a new window pops up that says "Windows cannot find resycled boot com. please make sure you typed the name correctly and then try again. To search for a file click the start button and then click search"........ So getting rid of "resycled boot com " doesn't mean that you will have access to your drives. Does anybody know how to get around this problem? thanks. :thumbsup:

Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.

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.
