    At this moment you have at least 4 threads started with different problems with, I assume, the same computer. Time to "Recover" or do a fresh install of Windows.

    Possibly something left behind when you uninstalled something.

    Run Autoruns, find the entry (use Search if necessary) and delete it.

    It's often a hard decision, but generally best to have a separate thread for each separate problem. But just try to solve only 2 or 3 problems at most at a time and when those are solved, move on to more. They are often interrelated and don't seem to be, so solving one may solve many. Just take it a little at a time.

    You should see that dll in Autoruns. It will also tell you what program it goes with so you can decide whether it should be deleted or fixed.

    I did not mean that you should necessarily put all those problems in the same thread. As Elvandil said, "It's often a hard decision." Sorry for the confusion.

    It was/is just my opinion that with that many problems it's better to just start fresh. Since it's pretty new I agree that you shouldn't be bumping into so many problems, but it also means it's an ideal time to Recover or reinstall.

    Even if you don't want to do so now, you should realize that eventually you will probably need to do so. Did you get a Windows installation CD/DVD or Recovery DVD/CD with your system? If not, you probably got a Recovery partition along with instructions on how to create Recovery CDs/DVDs once. I advise making those disks as soon as possible because the day will come when something happens that makes the Recovery partition unusable. On average that day won't come for years, but with the luck you've had so far a disaster may be just around the corner.
