  1. Hello, Everytime I log into windows, I get an error message that is saying the following :

    Cannot read C:\Windows\System32\gbhlkwny.dll
    Cannot find the named module.

    I've tried finding it on my XP CD but its not there either, tried googling it, cannot find it there, either, Anyone here that knows what that specific file does? Would be appriciated with some help about what it do and how I can fix it.

    Not sure on the file in question but Startup Control Panel can remove unwanted startups.

    If you can't find it there, you could use Autoruns
    But do Not disable anything in here, except gbhlkwny.dll (if found)

    Even if you do remove that item from your startup its mere presence seems a bit shady to me. It wouldn't hurt if you took a little look in the Security forum, followed the sticky threads & created a new thread posting the different logs you've gathered.
