Looks like this has gotten me as well. I tried the hijackthis, which the log is below. I read the thread where they gave a link for the Reg Organizer and the search couldn't even find it, but I am getting the error when I log on. I tried scanning with AdAware and AVG and nothing was found.
This is a new problem as of today which is odd because I scanned my computer last night with both Adaware and AVG, and I cleaned out my cookies and temp files.
Any help with this I would appreciate. FYI... I have the google toolbar to stop popups so that appears in the log, and I also have weatherbug (if downloading that is the problem, then please let me know), and the Zone Alarm firewall if that makes a difference. Also, I have style XP which is supposed to be on my computer as well as a game/glorified chat room called There which I noticed showed up on the log. The bridge.dll problem is a new one and didn't come with either one of those programs which have been on my computer for a year.

Thank You again for the help in fixing this stupid problem. :)

The bridge.dll problem is a new one and didn't come with either one of those programs which have been on my computer for a year.

Your log looks pretty clean, overall. You have the bridge.dll entry, but no associated BHO (browser helper object) entry. This is good!

You do have GMT, which is Gator/Claria adware and should be removed--see if it's listed in the Add/Remove Programs menu first. The utility for that purpose that I keep coming back to is Atomic Clock Sync.

Weatherbug is adware, but I tolerate it because it's useful. You be the judge.

Here's what to remove:

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunDLL] rundll32.exe "C:\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files\bridge.dll",Load

O4 - Global Startup: GStartup.lnk = C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT\GMT.exe

Then reboot, follow the paths, and remove:

C:\WINNT\Downloaded Program Files\bridge.dll (file only, but probably missing)

C:\Program Files\Common Files\GMT (whole directory)
