Default Computer problems

I am new here and in a very big hurry, I am sorry if I placed this in the wrong section...

Ok here is the problem...

I used nortons anti virus and it deleted a file called "bridge.dll" Now every time I start up the computer it has this problem that says:
"error loading C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\bridge.dll The specified module cound not be found."

If you can help me please contact me

msn messenger: tom_paris555@hotmail.com
aim: jaredmx555

Thank you

Sorry if I put this in the wrong section

The program that installed bridge.dll is being loaded at startup, since the dll file had been deleted you see the error, simply delete the registry key that is calling the main adware program.

I still have the same problem... I had allready uninstalled the adware program, that was my first idea... But it still is giving me that same message at start up...

there's no need to delete it
It can help others who search for "bridge.dll" for example
