Download the official MS Technet AutoRuns: http://download.sysinternals.com/files/Autoruns.zip
Unzip. then start the program.
You will see some yellow lines, on those lines, watch out for sysmenu.dll. If you finally found it, right mouse click, delete.
Reboot. That's all.
Also, this was probably part of some unecessary toolbar/search bar. Please don't install those.

Hi Italiabella,

It would be helpful if you embed screenshots directly in your post rather than uploading a Word file. That way, members can see it straightaway in your post, and clicking on it will bring up an even larger image in a new tab. As a Word file, folks have to download it and open it (and, of course, need to have software that will handle a DOCX file). As a JPG or PNG file, it will be handled directly in the browser. Here's a quick-read article, How to Embed Screenshots in Posts, that explains the embedding technique. I have taken the liberty of embedding your image below:

RunDLL missing
Now, to your question. This is one of those errors that can occur for numerous reasons. A popular one these days is updating to W8.1:

You'll see suggestions in that thread worth trying — Autoruns and the command <sfc /scannow>, which must be run in an elevated command prompt (right-click and "Run as administrator").

But the problem also occurs in W7:

A Google search for "sysmenu.dll" will give you lots to study. Regards, Joe
