Hello, can anyone help? I keep getting the message:
C:\system32\bridge.dll module cannot be located on start up of windows XP.
I've run Ad-aware 6 and Hijackthis and this is my log:

I've run Ad-ware 6 and this start up error is the only recurring message. If someone could advise me on what to do to fix this problem, I would be very grateful. Thank you.

Hi & welcome to the forums. Lets see if we can sort it for you.
Unzip HJT into it's own permanent folder before doing anything in order for it to create backups. (Not a temporary folder or directly on the desktop & not directly on your hard drive). Close all (browser) windows & rescan with hijackthis. When the scan is finished place a check in the box to the left of the following entries & click 'fix checked' :

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [RunDLL] rundll32.exe "C:\WINDOWS\System32\bridge.dll",Load

And thats all folks :)
