My operating system is windows xp professional and I I have an error loading message saying "c:/winnt/system32/msiefr40.dll specific module can not be found". What does this message mean and how does one fix this problem. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Download HijackThis. Unzip, run, "Scan", "Scan" changes to "Save log". Save the log and copy and paste the HijackThis log into your next post.

Do not fix anything in HijackThis. Most entries will be harmless.

Zupdate Zupdate.exe B3d Projector - periodically trys to access the internet. (1) Uninstall it via Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs. (2) Remove the BDEsecureinstall.exe if still present in C:\Windows\System. (3) Disable and ideally delete it from the registry. (4) Remove the "BDE" directory and all its contents.

Cut and paste from here:

You also have a bunch of stuff loading on startup that can be slimmed down.
