I logged onto my PC today and as soon as I logged into my account a erro came up. It is a Rundll stating that- error loading c:\window\system32\mafuradi.dll This specified module can not be found.
My concern is, what is this and what can I do about it. Contacted Windows and they said that since the windows XP program came with my dell PC. I need to contact them. Dell says my warranty has run out and they can not serve me.If anyone can point me in the right direction as to what this is and how ill it affect my PC later I would appreciate it. My PC has since gone to a turtle crawl and will not let me do a system restore. Thank You

First of all, chill :)

That's not a Windows file so it's either malware or some program you installed is looking for that .dll in order to start. Download and run Mike Lin's Startup Control Panel and look for any app that's starting with the system with which you aren't familiar. Uncheck it and reboot. Does the message still appear?

I suspect malware.
Definitely not a Windows file.

Download, install, update and run MalwareBytes AntiMalware and SuperAntiSpyware
Get the free versions of both.
Do the complete scan. It could take a while so check on it every once in a while.
Remove all elements found & reboot.
See if that takes care of it.
In the beginning there was the command line.

There's certainly no harm in using MalwareBytes and running scans now and then (in addition to your resident anti virus). May I assume you found a startup program that was causing the problem?
