This is my wife's cousin's PC.(Bonnie)  Running Win XP (SP3).  I've been tasked with 'fixing' said PC...  ( the PC was extremely slow when I first got it.)  I've been removing Malware for several weeks now.  I first tried removal on my own, but after a few days, sought & received guidance from a BC Malware removal expert.  If you want or need more details, this is the URL for that topic...
Now, I've run into an error only when I use Her login.  Weird thing is, I don't get that error, or any error for that matter, when I use my login...
The error is concerning rosighm.dll,  I searched for it on the 'net.  It appears to be some sort of Malware.  
The error says: rosighm.dll cannot find _???_.dll.  How can I fix this?
All the malware removal & whatever other tasks I've done on her PC, I've done using my user login that I created.  By doing it that way, I wouldn't have to change any of her desktop settings.  I could set things like I like in my login, etc...
I assumed, any altertions to the overall system would be mirrored in Her login.  <Bzzzt, wrong>

It's not unusual to receive such an error(s) when "booting up" after using anti-virus and other security scanning tools to remove a malware infection.
A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to a malware file that was set to run at startup in the registry 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 still 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.
    Vista/Windows 7 users refer to these instructions.
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
    Vista/Windows 7 users right-click and select Run As Administrator
