error loading lgou.rlo --- RUNDLL

I have a DELL optiplex, fairly new machine.  It is running windows XP pro with service pack 3.  Every morning when I boot it, I get a RUNDLL message saying "error loading lgou.rlo, the specified module could not be found."  I have checked msconfig and have not seen anything similar in the startup list.  Please help.

If there's any doubt about Malware i recommend downloading & updating Malwarebytes anti-Malware, from here:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
When updated, reboot into Safe Mode by depressing F8 and run a scan.

If you cannot run mbam, try downloading a new mbam and rename it *before* saving it to your desktop, then try again.

Have you been connected to the internet, because it resembles an error due to Malware or virus?

Start>run>msconfig

Uncheck it in there, and the error should be no more. Probably an orphaned startup entry from a previous infection, but would be good to do some followup scans......

After scanning, if you still have the error message & assuming you can reach the internet, we could see if HijackThis 2.04 finds anything:

Create a folder where you would like the HijackThis file to reside and run it from there, not from the Desktop or a temporary folder.
Run the scan & save the logfile.  Then click the "Code" box, paste the logfile into the "Code" page and we can analyse it.
