When I log into my computer I get this message:
"Rundll
There was a problem starting C:\Users\olive\AppData\Local\mdrill.dll

The specified module could not be found."
What does this mean? Thanks for your help.

What's likely happened here is you've cleaned malware from your system recently, but an option in your Windows Startup is still trying to call the malicious DLL.

To rectify this, hold down the Windows and R keys together to bring up the Run dialogue box. Within here, type in msconfig and hit the Enter key. Click on the Startup tab to see the list of files processed at startup, locate the line referring to mdrill.dll, and then remove the check against it. You'll be prompted to restart, so do that to check the error message has disappeared.
