RunDLL error and unable to delete registry keys?
Posted on 2013-12-09
I have a Windows 8 computer that upon bootup for the last 3 weeks or so, right after upgrading to 8.1, I've been getting this error and I've done everything I can to get rid of it and it just keeps popping up when I boot up the computer. Here's what the error says:
"There was a problem starting 'C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\Conduit\BackgroundContainer\BackgroundContainer.dll' The specified module could not be found."
I've gone through the C: drive and cannot find any traces of anything related to "Conduit", "BackgroundContainer" or anything of that nature. I went through the registry and found two "BackgroundContainer" startup keys, but it won't let me delete them. I tried running regedit as admin, I've tried booting into safe mode and running regedit as admin and nothing is working. I just keep getting the error, "Error deleting values: Unable to delete all specific values" when I try to delete the keys. I've tried running malwarebytes full scan as well as CCleaner full scan and neither fixed it. How do I get rid of this annoying and persistant popup error??
