I removed a virus from a laptop yesterday and everything sees to be working like it should except I get a runDLL error.


It says:
There was a problem starting C:\Users\AppData\Local\ARCADE~1\AgHelp.dll

The specified module could not be found.

The error seems to show up when I start certain programs. Is there a way to find out what program is trying to use this dll?

Thanks a lot,

I would say that its linked to the AppInitDLL entry in the Registry, but without checking for myself I can't really say. How did you remove that malware exactly? Also, the system could still be infected if you didn't do an thorough malware removal clean up.
