RunDLL error after logging on

I have a windows 7 PC.

After logging on I receive the following RunDLL error message: There was a problem starting clt7v26j2.cpp. The specified module could not be found.

I have ran msconfig and selected the startup tab. There is nothing selected that would trigger the RunDLL message.

Also via Registry Editor I have loaded:

HKEY_Current_User -> Software ->Microsoft ->Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Run

HKEY_Local_Machine -> Software ->Microsoft ->Windows -> CurrentVersion -> Run

I cannot see the file that would cause the RunDLL error message to appear.

How can I remove the RunDLL error message?

Hi,

Google has little information on that file, so it is probably a left over Startup Entry from Malware that has been removed by your Security Programs.

 

Download, install, update and scan your System with the free version of Malwarebytes AntiMalware:

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free

 

@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

 

 

If problem remains after scanning, take those Entries out of Startup:

"Autoruns for Windows v11.32"

Cheers.

Hi Bill,

I downloaded and installed the free version of Malwarebytes AntiMalware. I performed a full system scan. The scan was completed successfully and no malicious items were detected.

I downloaded the Autoruns for Windows v11.32. I opened the autoruns file and looked in the tabs: Everything, Logon and KnownDLLs. Unfortunately, I could not find anything relating to clt7v26j2.cpp

Hi Hetti Arachchige V Aravinda,

I have viewed the link you kindly provided and followed the instructions. Regrettably, the RunDLL error message still appears after logging on to the computer.

So you have checked in start up for clt7v26j2.cpp ? http://www.pcandtablet.com/windows-7-tutorials/1343/how-to-disable-a-startup-entry-in-system-tray-task-bar-in-windows-7-a.html ?

The only other place I can think of Task Scheduler .

Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools then  Open Task Scheduler and click on Task Scheduler Library.......Look through the list for an entry related to your dll/and or clt7v26j2.cpp.......If found, right-click on it and select Delete.

Hi Forest Book,

Sorry I should have been more specific.

I unticked all the items that were selected in the startup tab (msconfig). The computer was restarted but the issue remains.

Hi Hetti Arachchige V Aravinda,

Yes, I have checked in the startup tab (msconfig). I unticked all the items that were selected in the startup tab (msconfig) and restarted the PC. Unfortunately the issue remains.

I have selected: Start -> Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Task Scheduler -> Task Scheduler Library. See screen shot.

Unfortunately, I cannot find an entry related to your dll/and or clt7v26j2.cpp

Hi Forest Brook,

I selected the services tab in msconfig and selected the option to hide all Microsoft services. I have unticked the options that were left and restarted the PC. The message still appears.

I left the error message on my screen. I opened Task manager, selected the Process tab and added the column Command Line.

As shown by the screen shot attached I found the clt7v26j2.cpp – c:\windows\system32\rundll32.exe

Would I have to delete the file rundll32.exe?

Please Get back with a print screen ... DONT TOUCH/ALTER anything in the registry.. Just a printscreen.. 

Make sure spelling is correct and you have selected the computer before search..
