When I boot my laptop I get the error message: the ordinal 10 could not be located in the dynamic link raur1.dll (dll name may not be right, couldn't read my note). The computer seems to be operating fine, but something must not be right. How do I fix? Is it serious?

It would help if you knew the exact name of the DLL. i searched and dont see any DLL with that name.

anyways it is just a bootup program that is not working, probably not even part of windows. as long as all your devices and everything work then you should be fine.

if you want to get rid of it, maybe you can write the name down in a format you can read, and then search your drive for that DLL. you can possibly look at the location it is found in which might be the program its associated with. otherwise right click on it and select properties, see if the company name is included in "version" on the properties tab.

if that helps you know what program it belongs to maybe you can just uninstall/reinstall it

The problem is a ODBC DLL out of date.  The problem should be fixable using the MDAC or one of the MDAC tools.  Some combination of uninstalling, or *gasp* deleting the old DLLs.

Try using that MDAC component checker tool to uninstall as much as you can, and then reinstall v2.8:

I restarted my computer this morning and carefully checked the message the unlocated dll is: raurl.dll

Does this impact either of the answers above?

How does something lke this happen? Could it be from a program like system mechanic?

This was not the solution. This is a problem that was fixed by unistalling and reinstalling webex.
