    Whenever I start up my computer, a .dll error comes up saying something along the lines "Unable to locate ihorauhn.dll"
    It's been happening for a while, but I haven;t noticed any changes in my computer's performance...
    I tried searching for 'ihorauhn.dll' on the internet, and found nothing about it.
    So, I have no idea what it was for, why it is missing, and what it does.
    I was just wondering what the .dll was for and what I should do to fix it?
    Thanks

    i have never heard of that dll either, but i would try disabling some start up programs one at a time to figure out which one it belongs to. take some educated guesses on which program you think it is. look at what is loading in the system tray when you get the error.

    once you find the program then you can fix it... :)

    Download HJTInstall.exe to your Desktop.

    http://www.trendsecure.com/portal/en-US/threat_analytics/HJTInstall.exe

    * Doubleclick HJTInstall.exe to install it.
    * By default it will install to C:\Program Files\Trend Micro\HijackThis .
    * Click on Install.
    * It will create a HijackThis icon on the desktop.
    * Once installed, it will launch Hijackthis.
    * Click on the Do a system scan and save a logfile button. It will scan and the log should open in notepad.
    * Copy/Paste the log to your next reply please.

    Don't use the Analyse This button, its findings are dangerous if misinterpreted.
    Don't have Hijackthis fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

    That's an ad for RegCure, a registry cleaner.

    DO NOT install this, if you value your PC.

    Post back a HJT log as suggested.

    Hi WhitPhil. I'm Glad you have stepped in and put both of us straight. I was looking for a dll fix and when I googled for that, I was sent to this site.

    That's how these sellers of slimeware get users to their sites, and also one of the reasons that we get many people to TSG with computer problems.
