Everytime my computer starts up I get this message
RUNDLL error loading c:\windows\wapvaua.dll the specified module could not be found.
I tried searching online to find out what this dll is and I find nothing. Anyone know what this dll is and how I can get rid of this error message. Thanks

Hello aaarrrggg,

The missing wapvaua.dll module doesn't sound legitimate. Good chance it's malware related. I would recommend going to the Am I infected? What do I do? Forum and posting there.

Good luck.

FWIW: Those "could not be found" errors often relate to malware which has been removed from the system...but a startup pointer still remains on the system, trying to find malware which no longer exists.

You can use a program to take a look at your startups and disable/delete the respective item. Two examples of such programs:

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

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