if i do something like convert dvd files or something strenuous for the pc, after a few minutes it will instantly shut off and two red lights on the front of my pc will begin to blink, when i turn the pc back on this error will pop up:
rundll
error loading\3\lxcjtime.dll
the specified module could not be found

this is the most irritating problem i've come acrossed in years, i just restored my computor with the factory boot disk, thats when this problem began, so i'm pretty sure i dont have a virus yet, but i guess anythings possible
my pc is an hp compaq desktop. thanx for any suggestions

If you have a Lexmark printer...try uninstalling and reinstalling it.

If you had a Lexmark printer at some time, this may have been a leftover startup pointer...which now has no referent.

Then again...it could be malware...I've never seen a path with the numeral 3 in it.

Why did you restore your system?

System manufacturer and model?

I personally think it's something with the memory, I had the same problem with a XP Laptop.. Or you might be overheating it.. But then again, you had spyware... You should have had a AV and Malwarebytes/ Spybot on..
Who said I couldn't have everything?

i dont think its overheating because the fan on this thing sounds like a jet engine, it has since i bought it 4 years ago, so i know its working. as far as spyware, i just completely restored the hd, there "should" be no spyware

Well...you may still have malware on the system....unless you just did the restore, I wouldn't be so sure.

You can try a couple of these free online scanners to see if anything has slipped by your protection:
(Be advised that some of these scanners will pickup things in "quarantine" from other anti-virus programs - so review the results carefully)

If you find that you're infected (or the scan doesn't complete or closes unexpectedly), you can post in the Am I Infected forum located here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/

There may also be a startup pointer to that item you mentioned...since the file is there, the error message is generated as it attempts to run something which is no longer installed.

You can download/install Autoruns to look at all startup items. Only look at the Logon tab. If you see an item there that references anything Lexmark or that particular item, disable it by following the procedures explained in Autoruns. Then reboot and see if your message appears.
