Dear all,

right after I uninstall an application on my Windows 8.1 PC and restart, I got this error:

Application error
it seems other application depends on this still running and looking for this removed application.

what is the way to find out what application is running is looking for this ?

then I can consider to:
1) uninstall that application too OR
2) reinstall this application back.

of course 1) is better.

I believe this is related to Malware.  See below for instructions on how to fix it that are taken from this link: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/protect/forum/protect_scanner-protect_scanning/run-dll-error-messagebackground-containerdll/49612202-667e-4a71-8e9a-d02161d8bc19

To resolve this, download AutoRuns and save it to your Desktop.
Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there.
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run As Administrator.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When finished scanning, it will say Ready at the at the bottom and list all entries under the Everything tab.
In the top menu, click File > Find... and type the file name (backgroundcontainer.dll) related to the error message, then click Find Next.
Alternatively, you can scroll through the list and look for any entry related to backgroundcontainer.dll and conduit.
If found, right-click on the entry and choose delete.
Exit Autoruns and reboot your computer when done.

Also check in Task Scheduler to make sure there aren't any related tasks trying to run this file:
1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools.
2. Open Task Scheduler and click on Task Scheduler Library.
3. Look through the list for an entry related to BackgroundContainer.
4. If found, right-click on it and select Delete.
5. Exit all programs and reboot the computer when done.

Once you have completed the above I highly recommend running a tool such as MalwareBytes to make sure all remnants are removed.

If MalwareBytes doesn't find anything and you no longer get the error then you should be good. As a good practice I would make it a habit to run malwareBytes at least once a month if not more to ensure your system stays malware free.
