I am running Windows7 64 bit and my computer has been running fine until about a week ago. I now get an odd message on boot up which I have reproduced below.


C:\PROGAM 1\COMMON 1\System\Menu.dll


Could some kind soul please advise me of the cause and the cure. Searching the net has led me to believe it could be a RUNDLL error but although several sites suggested software to fix it ,I have tried some and failed. Please HELP............Dave

This message is due to a startup item that points to a directory that no longer exists. You will need to delete the startup item/task that is causing the issue.

Easiest way to resolve this is to get a list of your startup items. Please download and run "autoruns".

https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx

1. The download is a .zip file. Extract the contents of the folder to a place on your computer that you can find.

2. Open the autoruns folder and run "autoruns".

3. Make sure the tab is set to "everything" ( it should be by default)

4. Search for "menu.dll"

5. It should show the startup item/task that is pointing to that directory. If you right click on the item you will have an option to "delete".

6. After you delete the item reboot your computer to test.

Let me know if those steps work.
