Hi,
Each time I start my computer I get two signs saying dykoccme.dll wont load and yiwcsfow.dll wont load. I don't know where to look for them but I believe because of these, a few of my applications wont work.
I have tried looking on line to see if they are readily available but to no avail.
Any assistance would be truly appreciated.

Is your Anti-Virus up to date and working?

Do you use Antimalware/Spyware, SpyBot, AdAware...?

What are the problem applications? You might try to repair or reinstall the problem applications.

Those files look like something trying to load after a virus or other piece of malware was removed. Keyloggers and other malware like to create obscure filenames to hide their work of which can only be accessed on the machines with the decipher tools since most of these files are encrypted before being sent back to the creater(s) of the malware.

Addendum to what cryptodan said


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.


If you still have problems, I suggest you post in our Am I Infected forum
