No such file, per Google.

Please check to see if you have spelled it correctly.

Could be a startup item that remains for malware which has been removed.

Take a quick look, using msconfig. Start/Run...type msconfig and hit Enter. Click the Startup tab. See if anything similar to the file referenced...is listed.

If so, list any/all info reflected for that item.

It may be a good idea to start new topic in "Am I Infected?" forum.

Well Louis, you seem to be right...that "dll" file is listed in my startup..what should I do? Uncheck that item??

Command = rundll32.exe "C:\windows\kbdsnb.dll",startup
Location = Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Thanks

I would uncheck...then reboot the system and ensure that doing so causes no perceived problems.

Then I would go back to msconfig and enable the normal startup settings...making a change of any sort in msconfig seems to make it revert to Selective Startup. Msconfig is not the utility to use when disabling/eliminating startup items but I just wanted a quick look at your items first.

I then suggest that download/install any of the following startup managers:

Starter (for Startups) - http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/Starter.shtml

Startup Control Panel - http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml

Startup Inspector for Windows - http://www.windowsstartup.com/

After installation, use the utility to find the same startup item...now you can either safely delete or disable it, whichever is your choice.
