Hello everyone,

I hope I can get some help on this issue that has been annoying me. I am using xp home and everytime my computer starts up about 10 minutes later I always get a RUN DLL error. I have scanned my computer with anti virus, spyware, registry cleaner and nothing corrects it. Here are some examples of the errors I get. It's usually always something different. Thank you so much!

RUN DLL

Error loading c:\windows\u3dplt3.dll
%1 is not a valid win32 application

RUN DLL

Error loading c"\windows\dasvrm.dll
%1 is not a valid win32 application

My best guess is that these files are left over entries from an infection that one of your anti-virus programs removed.

What has your anti virus programs been telling you?

Try running the system file checker.

Ensure your logged in under an Administrator Account. Then Goto Start -> Run -> cmd.exe -> sfc /scannow

It just says, "files that are required for windows to run properly must be copied to the DLL cache. Please insert your windows xp professional cd 2 now.

I don't have the xp cd, not sure if my computer even came with one?

Those filenames you listed...draw complete blanks from Google.

You've done a search for these filenames on your system? (Start/Search...).

Have you had any virus/malware issues in the past? Anything quarantined in your Anti Virus vaults?

Yeah I can't find any information on these files. I can do a search on my computer for these files and it locates them and allows me to delete them which on a couple I have. I just don't know if these files are important or how many different files there are. It's always a different file name that comes up.

I'd head over to the virus removal forum and see what they think..

I suspect an active infection still resides and or left over files from a previous infection/removal attempt.

Well, I think your right! I went over to that section and just looked around and decided to download Malware Bytes. I ran a scan and it detected 2 trojans and I quaranteed them and so far no Run DLL errors, thanks!
