When my computer reboots, I get a rundll error 0o8w0lk0.dll when my programs load up. It says error loading 0o8w0lk0.dll. The specific module cannot be found. Should i just ignore the error because nothing else seems to be wrong?

Do you know exactly when this anomaly began?

Have you used any kind of registry cleaner or ap that modifies the registry recently?

Are you getting any popup ads or having any kind of problem surfing to different web pages?

Has anything changed your home page (without your intentionally doing it)?

That's a bad file. Malware. Not sure what it's from, but it's commonly removed. What probably happened is one of your antispyware programs deleted that .dll and something is still trying to run it. It's actually good that it's not running, but not good that its parent program wasn't cleaned up.

You should post a hijack log in our hijack forum. Read this first. Please be patient, it's taking a long time to get to the logs.

Don't post to your own log because they're looking for posts with no replies first.

Don't attempt to fix anything with Hijack This yourself.
