Have you recently installed/un-installed anything? If so what..

Hi gbandrew

I noticed that you posted this problem over several other forums. Could you post back if you are still needing help???.....If you are, it's important that you can let us know what kemical was asking about, that is what you have been installing/uninstalling recently.

I remove a lot of viruss at work and that filename mLEtTKaY.dll and the other so looks like a virus. My bet would be that your antivirus has removed the virus for you but the run key is still in your registry. If you are technical you could try to search the registry for all references to the file and delete them manually. As a rule I don't trust registry cleaners.

From this site (the site we are on windows 7 forums) I found a list of updated free system programs http://dottech.org/freebies/12754 and http://www.macecraft.com/jv16powertools2009/registry_cleaner/ is a registry cleaner that looks as if it may be helpful. The principle of deleting references to files that don't exist seems sound and the cleaner will back up what you do. My new years resolution is to keep this software in mind for situations such as yours. Here is a nice explanation of rundll errors http://www.tuneupadvisor.com/rundll32-exe-error.aspx you can just ignore its sales pitch for RegCure.

The only downside to this jv16 tool is that it comes with a lot of other software in addition to the cleaner tool. You can always uninstall when you are done.
