After rebooting or starting up my computer, I always recieve a

Error Loading C:\WINDOWS\system32\tptrgwcs.dll
The specified module could not be found.


Any suggestions on what this might be, I have searched and couldn't find any info.


Much thanks, Joshua

It's possibly a reference to a malware or other file...which has been removed from the system.

There's probably a pointer in Startups...I would use AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx to check for such on the Logon tab...and then disable it (not remove).

If all attempts to find more info on it turn up nothing in a few days, I would delete.

If there is not an entry among Startups for such...I have no clue :thumbsup:.

FWIW: I don't see anything like that in my system32 folder, nor is there any info via Google.

Yes, I would just go ahead and delete that, using Autoruns.
