I think I might of found a solution to this problem. At first I went to C:\WINDOWS\System32\spool\Drivers\W32X86\LXCItime.dll and removed the dll file to see if that made a different and it didn't.
Then I navigated my way to Registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run). I right clicked reg value LXCICATS, selected modify and removed the entry ",RunDLLEntry". with out quotes. Restarted my pc and did not get the error anymore. Went back into the registry and found that registry had re created the ",RunDLLEntry" I had deleted. Anyway this worked for me and hopefully for others.

UPdate: Still had issues after removal of above entry. Went back in to registry, same entry and removed "DRIVERS\W32X86\3\LXCItime.dll,RunDLLEntry". Don't know if I'm on the right track or not, but someone might be able to use this to further troubleshoot this issue. Just a side note, that after removal of this last entry that start up seemed to be kinda weird as in a slight hesitation. Anyway for what its worth, good luck.

Hello, I moved this to the Am I Infected forum as there are not the required logs posted for this forum.

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.
