Windows 7 - RunDLL Problems

I have a Inspiron i1764 running Windows 7.

Whenever I start up my computer and log in,

(Everything still works fine but it is rather annoying)

 

A window always pops up and it says:

"RunDLL

There was a problem starting winadt32.rom

The specified module could not be found."

 

Please help me out!

-Thanks

Re: Windows 7 - RunDLL Problems

Are you sure it's a problem with "winadt32.rom" ? Google doesn't find a single entry with that name or just winadt32 without the .rom.

That suggests either you mis-typed it, or maybe there's malware on this system. emoticon.Surprise.title

Here is a link to a screen shot of what the window looks like and what it says:

Re: Windows 7 - RunDLL Problems

Hard to know what the problem is if google ca't find that file name.  Suggest you scan for malware.

What happens when you boot in Safe Mode?

Guten tag!

I could not find anyway to fix it, so I just reinstalled Windows 7 with the disks my computer came with.

Since I reinstalled Windows 7, It does not come up anymore when I log on.

Re: Windows 7 - RunDLL Problems

Hello!

I have an solution for that problem! It is Malware!

in the msconfig is an entry it calls "MSSMSGS". In this command is the name winadt32.rom. When i google "mssmsgs" it shows some Trojans with similar evidence designations such as winxip32.rom. With the program "malwarebytes anti-malware" the Malware is quickly removed.
