Several weeks ago I got this error message:

An exception occurred while trying to run ""C:\Program Files\WildTangent\Apps\CDA\cdaEngine0400.dll",cdaEngineMain"

since then my computer runs slowing and often freezes

I have run Adaware Professional and Norton Antivirus but nothing shows up

Could this RUNDLL file be causing the problem? I would appreciate any suggestions,
thanks

One idea is to uninstall Wild Tangent. Go to:

Start > Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs

and remove it from there. Reboot. See if issue persists.

WildTangent is a video game software company specializing in online games. Its gaming plugin contains the WildTangent Web Driver, WildTangent Multiplayer Library, WildTangent Updater and WildTangent GameChannel. The WildTangent Web Driver is their technology that allows you to play 3D games over the Internet.

The software can be downloaded as a standard setup .exe file or installed by an activeX control from the vendor's web site. The program is bundled with Games from WildTangent and some WinAmp plugins. In addition, WildTangent is installed by some Internet Service providers such as Verizon and Bellsouth and comes preinstalled on some desktops from HP. WildTangent also partnered with AOL to include itself as part of AOL Instant Messenger for their AIM games section.

Although it is not technically considered spyware WildTangent does have built in components to update itself and gather information about the computer system.

The error message you received is common when WildTangent is partially removed.
