My computer suddenly has a RUNDLL error that says

"Error Loading C:\WINDOWS\dsgric.dll

Access is denied."

And every program I find online to get rid of it costs hundreds of dollars (that I don't have)

Is there an easy way to fix this myself?

The windows pop up every ten to thirty seconds...

Have you recently uninstalled software?

Have you recently removed malware from your computer?

The file seems to be completely unknown.

Do you have any idea what it might be?

Please click here to download and install version 2.0.2 of the HijackThis Installer.

Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

Do not fix anything

The .dll file can come from one of your games, or it can be remnants of a malware removal.

Please post the log.

Once saved to your hard drive, you need to run Autoruns. Once opened, click on File and then Save...
