After the computer completes start-up, I get the following error message:

"RUNDLL: (Error loading C:\windows\system 32\bridge.dll. The specified module could not be found.)"

I'm not sure, but I believe the problem may have started after installing and running the latest versions of "Ad-aware 6.0" and few similar like that then deleting the problem items that were found.

Any help removing this problem from my computer would be greatly appreciated.

I thank you in advance...

Hi drajpatel, welcome to DaniWeb :)

I believe the problem may have started after installing and running the latest versions of "Ad-aware 6.0" and few similar like that then deleting the problem items that were found.

Good call- that's exactly right. "bridge.dll" is a spyware component, and while AdAware, etc. have removed the actual bridge.dll file, there is still a reference to the file in your Windows Registry.
You may also have other "loose ends" remaining on your system; please do the following so that we determine if that's true or not:

Download the free HijackThis utility:

Once downloaded, follow these instructions to install and run the program:

Create a folder for HJT outside of any Temp/Temporary folders and move HijackThis.exe to that folder now. A folder such such as C:\HijackThis or C:\Spyware Tools\HijackThis will do.

Run HijackThis, but do not have HJT fix anything yet; only have it scan your system! Once the scan is complete, the "Scan" button will turn into an option to "Save log...".
Save the log in the folder you created for HijackThis; the saved file will be named "hijackthis.log". Open the log file with Windows Notepad, and cut-n-paste the entire contents of the Notepad file here.

The log contents will tell us a lot about what "nasties" have crept into your system, and once we analyse the log we can tell you what to do from there. We can also tell you how to use HijackThis to fix the "bridge.dll" error.

Hi nooklogan,

First of all- welcome to TechTalk :)

We ask that members not tag their questions on to a thread previously started by another member (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Please start your own thread and post your HijackThis log in that thread. Once you start the new thread, we will assist you there.

For a full description of our posting guidelines and general rules of conduct, please see this page:

Hi Bonoreborn.

First of all- welcome to Daniweb :).

We ask that members not piggy-back questions on to a thread previously started by another member here in the Viruses, Spyware & other Nasties forum, (regardless of how similar your problem might seem). Not only does it divert the focus of the thread away from the original poster's problem, but it also makes it less likely that you yourself will get the individual attention that you need.

Please start your own thread and post your question there. When you do, please try to give us as much specific info as possible regarding the problem (exact error messages, system specs, etc.).
