Default Error!

Hi all,

I'm hoping that someone can help me out here.

On my PC start up I get this error:

Error loading C:/windowss/download program files/bridge.dll

The specified module could not be found

Does anyone know how I can sort this out?

it means that OS cannot find a DLL file that OS is calling for
it may or may not be required for the OS to load.

on boot up press F8, you should get a prompt that gives you several options, enter safe mode.

see if you can enter windows.

I think its spyware,
Go to start
run
and type msconfig
and then disable the bride.dll
Then get spybot search and destroy from www.safer-networking.org, install, update it THEN run it

I have done this lot here:

Go to start
run
and type msconfig
and then disable the bride.dll
Then get spybot search

and it has cleared the problem, but......................

when I go to add/remove programs the file

"Bridge" is there it will not let me delete it, how can I remove this file?

No I didn't install it as I know of, unless it came via another programme?

I have done all that and ran spybot, all cleared, the problem does not come up now on pc start up but I can't for some reason remove "Bridge" from my add/remove programs?


When I click on delete I get this message:


Error loading C:/windowss/download program files/bridge.dll

The specified module could not be found
