Hi Myron P,

 

It appears that you have some remnants of what you have attempted to remove from your HP. I would suggest asking in this forum:

 

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/22/virus-trojan-spyware-and-malware-removal-logs/

 

Someone there should be able to help you.

 

Take care,

 

Kurt

The reason that appears is that conduit is still being told to start up, and since you've cleaned it up, it can't start as it's missing files, in particular that DLL file.

So all you have to do is stop it from starting, which would either be in msconfig or in Services. (or both)

If it's not there, then it would be in the Task Scheduler.


All is well in Paradise.

BackgroundContainer.dll is related to Conduit, a toolbar engine installed (bundled) alongside many free applications which allows users to add applications directly to their browser without a community toolbar. Conduit offers a distribution option for Conduit-powered offerings and is used in order to generate ad revenue for the company. While not explicitly malware, it is often installed stealthily without knowledge or consent from the end user and is considered a Potentially Unwanted Program (PUP).

After using anti-virus and other security scanning tools to remove adware, PUPs and other malware it is not uncommon to find remnants of startup and scheduled task registry keys when booting up your computer. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file has been removed. However, an associated orphaned registry entry (value) still exists and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, you need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

Please download AutoRuns and save it to your Desktop.
  • Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there.
  • Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
    Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
  • Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
  • When finished scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom and list all entries under the Everything tab.
  • In the top menu, click File > Find... and type the file name (backgroundcontainer.dll) related to the error message, then click Find Next.
  • Alternatively, you can scroll through the list and look for any entry related to conduit and backgroundcontainer.dll.
  • If found, right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Exit Autoruns and reboot your computer when done.
An alternate way to resolve this issue is as follows:
1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
2. Open Task Scheduler and click on Task Scheduler Library.
3. Look through the list for an entry related to BackgroundContainer.
4. If found, right-click on it and select Delete.
5. Exit all programs and reboot the computer when done.

Note: If you are using WinPatrol, launch the program or right-click on Scotty's system tray icon and choose "Display Scheduled Tasks". Under this tab, you can remove any scheduled task entry by right-clicking on the entry and selecting "Remove" from the context menu.

The proper instructions (fix) has been provided.

Msconfig only allows you to disable entries. To completely remove an entry from its' list you have to edit the registry or use a third-party utility.
