    For the last two days, I get an error message upon bootup of my XP Pro that reads "I CANT LOAD DLL".

    How can I link it to the software application causing it? What does it mean?:(

    What I quoted IS the exact message. A window opens up and reads "I CAN'T LOAD DLL".

    The other day my Norton Internet Security asked me to run a full system scan and I did. It found the Family Key Logger software I have installed on my own computer and did something to it. When you guys were talking about malware it made me remember that I've also been having problems with the Key Logger software since the Norton Scan. I clicked on the Family Key Logger shortcut and got the same "I cant load the DLL"! I uninstalled the Key Logger and now I no longer get the error.

    Thanks for your help.

    Just the same, how DOES someone link and error to the software causing it when it's on boot-up?

    I think he´s asking how to find out which software is causing an error.

    Well, it depends on the error, normally it will give you an error code, or description of whichever error you are getting, and at times it will have logs as well provided by whichever program caused it.

    Either way, I´m glad your problem was solved.
