after removing malware RUNDLL error

After removing the insidious "The FBI has your computer locked ....to unlock your computer pay $300 via GreenPak" all is working well except on startup I am getting an error message
"RUNDLL
Error loading C:\DOCUME~1\ALLUSE~1\APPLIC~1\boo2.dat
The specified module could not be found."

That is probably because the malware cannot load anymore as it was removed.

Have a look with msconfig, TAB 'Startup' and look for an entry that has rundll and that ...boo2.dat in the command, then disable that startup entry.
