Error messages when starting up

Post by Silke »

I'm using XP. when I start up I get three errormesseges. how do I get rid of them (and ofcourse the problems..)

StartFX.exe - Unable to locate component
this application has failed to start because MFC71.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


avgcc.exe - Unable to locate component
this application has failed to start because MFC71.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.


RUNDLL
Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\MYWEBS~1\bar\2.bin\MWSBAR.DLL
the specified module could not be found.


...what is a dll-file anyway?

startfx and avgcc are both related to the same software, probably a video program or a webcam from creative. if you uninstalled it i suggest you reinstall it, or remove the pointers from the registry.

mwsbar.dll is one of those search bars that nests itself in your explorer. this NEVER goes nicely, once you install one (like google and such) you'll be stuck with the misery for life.

a dll is a dynamic link library, it tells your computer what to do with bits of software.

ahh... your reply tells me that you should not poke around in the registry.
you will need a geek for that.
