  1. Hello everybody, I've been having this problem where everytime I log into windows xp(sp3) I get this RUNDLL error message I hit ok and everything runs fine. But I just want it gone it says C:\windows\system32\hjgkibkc.dll error loading specified file could not be found, this happened after AVG deleted it as an infection/virus. So any help or info apreciated and im sorry if this is stickied somewhere I looked and didnt see anything. :confused:

    check your startup menu for items that are listed but not installed. It may be trying the autorun something that isnt installed anymore.

    i had this problem and it was just doing my head in... sure it is a virus that creats random dll files and places them in the windows files.... all i done to avoid this was create a .dll file with that name and leave it empty... i then finds the .dll and does nothing as the .dll file doesnt do anything.. so that avoids the message.! but to go the other way around it i do not know... its no big deal this as it doesnt effect the PC in anyway.

    Use Startup Control Panel to remove any not required startups
    Everytime I install any program I always run this free utility to remove any Windows startups.

    No this is not the best method
    It can effect Windows by causing a slower startup, and it's basically a work-around.

    I prefer you just remove the startup entry
    Did Startup Control Panel show this entry to disable?
    If not, you can run Autoruns, then search for "hjgkibkc.dll" startup entry and remove it.

    This will help Windows load quicker
