Background: Running Win7
Virus Programs: subscription to Trend Micro expired yesterday so removed it and updated Microsoft Windows Essential. Thought I'd use that while I decide about another paid subscription
Actions at Time of Error: downloading/installing a new product called Bookkeeper (financial software from Avanquest)
Error: after the installation completed, I got the following error message (may not be quite verbatim):
Program Files (x86)\Common Files\MySoftware\lpicom_6_0.dll failed to self-register
invalid access to memory location
My first attempt to Google "lpicom_6_0.dll" brought up a lot of web sites that offered tools for downloads to remove trojans and other viruses. I didn't want to click on any of those. Tried to find reference to lpicom_6_0.dll at Microsoft.com to no avail.
I clicked on through the error, hoping that a failure to self-register (my new software...?) wasn't too bad.
Question: is this a virus? Or is this a dll file that I need to do something to/for? Per Windows Explorer, the file was last modified 11-06-09. It's the largest file in that "MySoftware" folder by far, almost twice as large as the next file (1,064 KB...next one is 610 KB)....for what that's worth.
Any ideas appreciated!
