  • Hi,

    Click Start, Type msconfig in Run

    In system configuration dialog box, uncheck sysmenu.dll under Boot Tab if this boot option exists.

    And check if there are related keys about sysmenu.dll under

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    If there are, please try to delete them.

    I suspect you omitted half the message. What is the full wording?

    How exactly did you reload Windows? Please report in detail.

  • Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I had worked on a computer riddled with malware which MWB removed but still kept getting this rundll error.  I then did a nondestructive reinstall of Windows 7 and still got the error.  After several hours and much searching I came across your post.  I found several entries in the Tasks folder that did not point to a valid program though they were not the entries you had.  I copied them and then deleted them one at a time until the rundll error was gone.  You're a life saver. Many thanks.

  • I am running Windows 7 Professional and Norton 360 and I am having the same problem. I ran a registry cleanup, full scan (no viruses or anything) and I looked under the boot tab in the system configuration dialog box but found no sysmenu.dll to uncheck. Where exactly would

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    be located?

    Thanks for your help.

  • These are registry keys.
    Note also that "cleaning up" the registry has no effect (if you're lucky) but can be highly damaging (if you are not so lucky).

  • Andy Altmann, if it only occurred when she first started the computer that could be it. But if it happens later then the culprit is probably one or more of the %windir%\Tasks\*.job files, or one of the registry entries that Task Scheduler uses.

    Here's a better answer (use AutoRuns):

  • I notice this error after uninstalling YTDownloader,several times now,same thing,it asks you during uninstall if you'd like to keep sysmenu.dll,I chose no,and now get this error.

  • I see it after running malwarebytes and spybot to clean out the malware,in vista,and in 7 too I think,everything is fine until you uninstall that youtube downloader,and I'm not sure which youtube downloader it is,I know its malware or a virus,all these machines have had virus on them also.

    I'm reluctant to state the obvious but since the name of this forum is "Windows 7 IT Pro Windows 7 Miscellaneous", asking the experts in a Windows 8 forum seems appropriate.

  • I am having the same DLL error as the user above.  I went into msconfig, and looked under the boot tab, but there is nothing there except Windows 7 (c:\windows) : Current OS; Default OS

    Any idea of what I can do?  Thank you in advance.

  • First, thank you for the provided assistance.  I have the same problem and followed your advise, but did not find any reference to SysMemu.dll under Boot Tab or under the HKEY areas using Config Editor.  I also looked in the C:\Windows\Tasks folder as someone suggested, but did not see any reference there, either.  Where else should I look?
