    Hi, This is my first post and am a little nervous.

    Yesterday got error message TWCU.exe "unable to locate component"
    Failed to start athcfgIIRes.dll was not found

    PC seems to be running ok, I use Avast! antivirus. Done scan all ok

    I have noticed other posts mentioning this as TP LINK error?
    I use a router using TP LINK wireless software.

    Question I have is,

    Have i got something nasty on my pc, or is it related to the TP LINK software?

    If it is something nasty, any advice would be helpful.

    Thank you!

    TWCU.exe is a TP-LINK 11G Wireless Client Utility. Are you sure that's the name of the DLL file? I'm unable to find anything about it, which seems weird. Check the spelling. The obvious reason could be that due to data corruption or loss, the DLL file is missing and therefore the exe is not able to function properly. A re-install of the wireless driver should probably help.

    Thanks for your help. I actually did re install the driver. And the error message hasn't come up again! So hopefully all is good. Fingers crossed
