Alright, this problem has been lingering on for a while, and i've been too lazy to try and fix it. It's about time i do...

I had a virus some time ago, and rid my system of it. Now, upon startup, a message opens.

Could not find wgsdgsdgsdgsd.dll

Well, not exactly that, but, something along those lines. I believe the startup routine is looking for a .dll file with that name.

I'm pretty certain i already went into the boot section on the system configuration section. Nothing there.

Sounds like when you removed the virus, you killed the file but not the startup entry.
you can disable the item in msconfig but it would better to delete it completely. You can use many programs to do this but personally I like ccleaner. When you run it, choose tools and then startup. Highlight the offending entry and then delete. That should stop the error on starup.

GAH! Never thought of that! But, um... the entry doesn't seem to be there. wgsd.dll...

Can't find it.

Any other way i can find it, and delete it?

There is always the registry entry but I don’t recommend poking around in there unless you have to. Just to be safe, double check the ccleaner list. If you expand out the column for “file” when you are in the tools/startup portion of ccleaner, one of the entries should end with that dll. Also, double check to make sure that there isn’t some program sitting in start->all programs->startup. I would also, just to be safe, run msconfig and check the startup tab, but normally ccleaner will show you anything that msconfig has.

You really need to pay attention to the file name. idonttakenotes.dll isn't going to cut it.

Seriously, there's another app that's trying to load that file and generating that error.

You can uncheck items in the run or run services until it goes away and then repair that application if you wish, but that's pretty time consuming. Usually a google search on the file name we reveal the associated application.

Make sure you infuse CCleaner with CCEnhancer for optimal scrub and cleansing. As fortune would have it, brand new v3.7 is out today. Download and install or just copy and paste the winapp file contents.

AH! Found it in msconfig. Had to hover the mouse over the location area to find it. Then i dug through about 10 different folders. Deleted it.

Phew...

Thanks, all!
