I have a Win 7 machine I have recovered from the FBI Moneypack. I don't know if my problem is related to the cure or whether the problem pre-existed.

I am getting the message upon startup:

"There was a problem starting
C:\Users\xxx\AppData\Local\Programs\CrashDumps\aqehkw.dll
The specified module could not be found."

Once you press "ok" it's fine, but it comes up each time I start the computer. MWBytes, Roguekiller, and ESET online scanner were all run.

I've tried a system restore, no luck. Help?

Delete this program from starting up (msconfig, CCleaner, or the dreaded registry).  If it's not there then see if you recognize all the programs that start up; disable the ones you don't recognize.  Also delete any installed programs that you don't recognize (don't worry, as, in case of error, all you have to do is to reinstall a program or two).

The program sounds like it would be "CrashDump" in that case...but that sounds more like a cache of information. I'll try what you say.

Update, whaddya know: there was a "CrashDumps" in the msconfig startup. I have disabled it and am now awaiting a restart. Thanks!
