Default dll file

When I started the computer a message came up saying that the dll file c:/windows/system32/2ndsrch.dll was not a valid windows file. I deleted the dll file, now I get a message that it can't load the dll file.when I start the computer. How do I get rid of this message as it is annoying.
I hope you can help
Sandra

what OS are you using, if you've got XP maybe I can send you a copy of the file from my computer

i just searched my C:\Windows\System32 and it didn't find one. so I'm guessing you don't have XP

Thanks for the advice, I found out the dll file was a spyware and it came with another file called stcloader that is why I couldn't get rid of it.

you say it's spyware, why don't you try something like spywarenuker or spybot to get rid of other spyware
