Hi there,

May i ask if there is a problem in my system, virus infection or malware if i experience this:

Every time i start up my system i get this error pop up:

"sistray.exe - Unable To Locate" - This application has failed to start because SiSBase.dll was not found. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem.


Need help, opinions...

Thanks.

What's your OS.

It could be an infection, scan with Malwarebytes and / or SuperAntispyware.

Alternatively, it may just be a video driver problem.
Reinstall / update your SiS drivers.

Hi there,

I did malwarebytes earlier but it already cleaned up what it thinks it should clean/delete.

after the process, the error still came back.

By the way, i use xp, and the error first came when i changed my motherboard.??

thanks,

Mon.

What about the video drivers.

Is Device Manager clear of any yellow warnings.

Silicon Integrated Sistems (SiS) makes chipsets used on many computers.

If you changed motherboards...and the old board had SiS chipset...and you did not remove the old drivers, then the possibility exists that there is at least one startup item still on the hard drive which relates to the former chipset.

What was the old motherboard (manufacturer and model)...what is the same data for the new?

Hi there Louis,

It was ASUS P5SDZ-VM (with Sis Chipset) ... my current one is XFX XG31i (for Intel LGA 775 up to 1333MHz FSB)

May i ask about the way to remove this error?
