    i am receiving an error when my computer boots up that reads c:\windows\system32\spool\drivers\w32x86\3\lxbstime.dll the specified module cannot be found. i've been advised to run a registry repair scan which i've done but after scanning so far all registry repair downloads have basically said they can repair 2 for free and then you have to purchase. doesn't microsoft have a fix for this or is there really a FREE fix out there somewhere?

    Go to Start > Search > For files and folders (or all files and folders) > and type lxbstime.dll, if it finds anything, post it here, if not post that it hasn't found anything.

    If you have a Lexmark printer installed try undating the drivers.

    Stay away from Registry cleaners than can and often do cause more problems than they solve.

    blues_harp28 do you think that downloading lxbstime.dll would fix the problem (of course by setting the dll to the right position), because i fixed many of mine dll problems with that procedure.

    Hi it's not a Windows dll file, it is related to Lexmark printer.
    It may be a once installed printer with the dll file still present.
    We await their reply.

    i did have a lexmark printer quite some time ago, but i thought i uninstalled it and it;s no longer listed on my add or remove programs. what actions will either completely remove it or as suggested dowload the lxbstime.dll?

    i ran autoruns and lxbs...was listed so i unchecked it. i didn't see anyway to apply or check the changes so i'm supposing that it will take care of itself. i'm going to reboot my compter and see if it fixes it.
