Windows 7 Professional... Removed several virus and apn reboot got a .dll error..

"There was a problem starting C:\Users\***\AppData\Local\asazonah.dll" The specified module cannot be found

Repair the old way like XP with disk doesn't seem to be the same.. Is there a way I can prevent this from popping on boot up? Or repair?

That file doesn't look familiar.  I will look it up.  But in the mean time, if everything else is working okay, you can just disable it from running on startup by using autoruns ( http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902 ).  This will work with windows XP and Higher (according to the link).  I have used it on Windows 7 without problems (ultimate edition).  Find the entry in the autoruns dialog and disable it.

If you use MSConfig 1) it doesn't always list everything 2) you will need to tell it not to continually popup every time you reboot on your next reboot.  Autoruns (follow the link) is a program, originally from sysinternals and now microsoft, that will delineate all you startup prcoesses (everything set to run on startup).

Great looking program.. the error states the .dll is missing.. I don' think the .dll would show up.. Any ideas?

delete the entry and it won't try to find the dll again.  BTW, I looked for references to that DLL with only 1 result - an Italian book referenced the name without the ".dll".

hmm.. I couldn't find an entry with that .dll.. What I meant was the inital error message (from windows) stated it was missing.. How do I determine which program is trying to open it?

There is most likely a registry key with that entry.  It should show up in autoruns with a file not found error.  If you click on that row and either click the red X or right click and choose delete.  Here is an example from autoruns of a File not found error in my startup (I uninstalled Symantec and replaced it with ESET, but Symantec puts junk everywhere):

EraserUtilDrvI9                  File not found: C:\Program Files\Common Files\Symantec Shared\EENGINE\EraserUtilDrvI9.sys

I forgot to say if you can't delete it just uncheck the box on the left to prevent it from running on startup.

Anytime.  (do the scan with Malwarebytes antimalware MBAM anyway to make sure you got rid of everything - which it sounds like you have)
