Hi,

My computer has been acting really slow lately and so has the internet. We have wifi too and it has also been really slow too.
The computer takes about 10 minutes to just start up on the home desktop screen.
When ever I start the computer a RUNDLL error comes up saying module could not be found.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks
Manny

What is the exact wording of the error message?

I searched them and came up with no matches which would lead me to believe they were files deleted by either a malware scanner or antivirus scanner which casnnot be found now durring start up. Usually these entries can be found in the HKLM(or HKCU)\software\microsoft\windows\current version\run. Deleting the entry will stop the error messages at startup.

Is there anyway that i can prevent the 10 minute startup time that it normally takes? I am even willing to restore my computer if it comes to that.

You are infected with either a virus or malware

For starters download, install, update and run MalwareBytes AntiMalware and SuperAntiSpyware
Do the complete scans with both programs

After running these and removing all items found you might consider starting a new topic in the Am I Infected forum so that our crack team of malware specialists can assist you further
In the beginning there was the command line.

For those 2 dll's....
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.


now rescan...
