Hi, my name is D. I have been experiencing this problem for quite some time now and have finally decided to do something about it.

The problem is that every time I start up my computer, I get the following error pop-up:

"Error loading C:\WINDOWS\cpu.dll"

I have read conversations on other sites regarding this same issue and each time they recommend downloading HijackThis! and posting the resulting log on the site for people to review. I have done that and am posting my log on this site for help.

If you have any thoughts or resolutions in this matter, they would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

LOG RESULTS:
