C:\windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll The specified module could not be found

I just installed WIndows 8.1 and whenever I start my laptop I get the message "There was a problem starting C:\windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll The specified module could not be found". Also, when I restart my laptop I get a message saying that the error is "THREAD_STUCK_IN_DECIVE_DRIVER". This picture quality of everything has also dropped. Can i just disinstall the update?



What is the make and model of the computer?


LogiLDA.dll is a file related to Logitech Download Assistant or a driver file for Logitech Devices connected to the computer. This error message is coming from the Logitech Download Assistant (LDA). This is a Logitech component that checks for updated drivers. This is a common issue after removing any Logitech hardware devices.


I would suggest you to uninstall the current version of the Logitech device driver. Download the latest Windows 8.1 driver and install it on the computer.

You received this ‘THREAD_STUCK_IN_DECIVE_DRIVER’ message because a device driver installed on your computer caused the Windows operating system to stop unexpectedly. It may very well be a defective video card driver issue.

Follow these steps and check:

a. Press Windows key + X from desktop and choose Device Manager.
b. Check if you are seeing a yellow exclamation next to Display Adapter.
c. If you find a yellow exclamation mark, then can right-click on the device and click on Properties to check the device status for any error.


I would suggest you to update the video card driver and also other drivers which are failing from manufacturer's website.
Download and install drivers
