At startup I get an error loading w002548e.dll message. Since this has started my son's games do not play worth a darn. I do not know if there is any connection or if I need to be concerned with this message. Otherwise the computer seems to be working O.K.

Is that the ENTIRE error message?

I can find no info regarding this dll file. If we knew what program it is attached to, it would help, so perhaps there are other clues in the error message. Please write it down and post it here as a reply, word for word.

Oh, and welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

Googling that file, produces no information. A lot of the time that means it is malware related. Suggest you run the two programs below.
Let us know if they find anything. The AVG 7.5 is best run in safe mode. Let it quarantine whatever it finds.
