splemst.dll RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently cleaned up my computer form a malware virus and after the clean up everything work as it's suppose to but when I boot up I get a "Error loading C:\Windows\splemst.dll The specified module could not be found". I have tried to Google this .dll and I get no results. Can someone explain what this is for and how to resolve it from returning.

  • Try to use the System Restore. That file seems to be not a part of Microsoft Windows and therefore, the error seems to be caused by any other 3rd party apps.

  • This is common.  There's an autostart entry left over from the malware.  You can rum MSCONFIG, look in the STARTUP tab and see if you can delete or disable the entry from there.  Barring that, download and run AUTORUNS from http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx and find the entry with that and delete it.
