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!

Do you mean Microsoft Security Essentials? Windows Essentials doesn't have an antivirus.

Try uninstalling the program you installed...which resulted in the error.
