The laptop in question is a Dell Vostro 1500 WIndows XP that uses IE for internet. When booting up, it is very slow and eventually throws an error message up that just returns over and over, never finishing the boot, but stopping at the desktop background, no start button. The error message is "bcmwltry.exe - application error The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000006). Click on OK to terminate the application."

The only thing that has been tried was a ctrl-alt-del and a system restore attempted. Upon restart, same message indicating the same application error.

I'll try to provide more details per request. I am on my Toshiba Satellite C655 laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium.

All help is appreciated. Thank you.

I tried the first two steps, only to my dismay, I first got a message saying "Warning: Termindating a process can cause undesired results including loss of data and system instability. The process will not be given the chance to save its state or data before it is terminated. Are you sure you want to terminate the process?" I clicked, of course, yes. Immediantly recieved this message, "Unable to terminate process. The operation could not be completed. The operation is not valid for this process." I click, ok, as this is my only choice, and the BCMWLTRY.EXE comes back to the list and moves up and down the list and it is, indeed in all caps, when the original error message has the .exe in all lower case.I also notice that the User name for the BCMWLTRY.EXE is different (SYSTEM) from the taskmgr.exe (which is in lower case letters) which is the laptop owner's name. I don't know if that means anything, but it is a detail.

Who is your Internet Provider at this time and have you ever been with the Broadcom Corporation Wireless Network ??

This is the message that you are getting -
bcmwltry.exe is the tray bar process for the Broadcom Corporation Wireless Network software.
This process gives you easy access to the software related the product above and can be removed to free up system resources.

Not what we know of, but we still can't seem to delete the stupid thing! It is preventing the computer from booting. I feel like there is some malware hidden in it somewhere.

This is for Broadcom Corporation Wireless Network users, as they may delete the Broadcom connection -

How to remove bcmwltry.exe from startup programs

Startup programs are the programs that load automatically when you start your computer. As the startup programs consume substantial system resources when you boot your computer, it is recommended that you only let essential programs start automatically.

If you do not use a BroadCom wireless LAN card or if you donít need to often make changes its configuration, you can safely remove this process from your startup programs.
After disabling, you can easily start the process manually whenever you need to use the BroadCom wireless connection.

To remove bcmwltry.exe from startup programs, perform the following steps:

  • On the Start menu, select the Run command.
  • In the Open box, type msconfig and then click OK to open the System Configuration Utility dialog box.
  • Here, click the Startup tab to view your startup processes.
  • Next, clear the box before bcmwltry or Broadcom option.
  • Click Apply, and then OK to save your changes and exit the dialog box.
  • Finally, restart your computer.
