    I can start back up in the safe mode or otherwise, but sometime later I get the blue screed and same message again (Different Tech info but same format).

    After booting up, I get another error messsge as follows: c:/Windows?system32/ecmpoopo.dll not found.

    I tried system restore, but cannot find any date that I can go back to!

    Please help someone!

    Kimsland,

    I completed your request and am still getting the same blue screen dump. I have been working another issue thinking that they made be related as follows;

    RUNDLL error loading C:\windows\system32\ecmpoopo.dll. This Specific Module could notbe found!

    The tech suggested hjtintalll, SDfix and Combofix. After completing all, I still get the same error message.

    Do you think they are related? What should my next step be regarding the issue that you are helping me on?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi Fred

    Sorry for the delay (sleep and all !)

    Anyway, please download Startup Control Panel from here:
    http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml
    (refer to the picture about disabling startup programs)

    Once downloaded and ran
    Please untick (disable) all boxes on all tabs (this is reversable - also if you can leave your Antivirus ticked that would be good - but no matter either way)

    Restart - and confirm the error still exists
    If Not - restart the Startup Control Panel program and select one at a time (restarting on each)
    Once the culprit has been found - right click and delete it

    If the error is still present - restart the Startup Control Panel program and select (re-tick) all disbled programs - then restart again and reply back

    By the way I have nothing starting at Windows startup except for AntiVirus - so if you wish to leave anything in there disabled (better off to) then that'll be ok

    Please reply back

    Kim,

    I completed your instructions and I am not getting the System32\ECMPOOPO.DLL error message! I will do as you said and try to identify which one is the culprit.

    I hope that this also fixes my blue screen physical memory dump problem. I will let you know the status of all.

    Thanks,

    Fred Atterberry

    Thanks for the reply.
    Sometimes once the user fixes the fault, there's no response back, which leaves me wondering is it fixed.

    Kim,

    I guess we are not quite done yet! I came home yesterday afternoon to the same blue screen error message! As you requested, the only start-up application that I have activated is the spyware. A restore point was created on the 27th (everything was fine at that point!) and I tried going back to that date, but was unsuccessful. I also tried going back to yesterday morning and was also unsuccessful. Although all seems O.K. at this time, I fear that the error will return. Also, what is up with me not being able to go to a restore point? Ideas?

    Thanks,

    Fred Atterberry

    I'm starting to think this is just memory related. ie removing that startup entry has just allowed your memory less activity and thus not showing any errors.

    My suggestion have the memory either checked/replaced/updated.
    Note there is a small possibility that the harddrive (the other memory) is faulty too.

    Kim,

    Thanks, It seems to have settled down over the last several days. I will close this thread out and start a new one on why I cannot go back to a previous date. Thanks for your help.
