Hi Experts,

This is a Windows 7 computer, when I restart a pop up box appears saying:
RunDLL
C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Local|Conduit|BackgroundContainer|BackgroundContainer.dll

The specified module could not be found.

Please advise how to stop the pop up.

You removed a piece of junkware from Conduit, and this is a left over.  Go to Bleepingcomputer.com and download ADWcleaner or Junkware removal tool.

I think you probably already deleted everything concerning this Conduit adware, so this is just one last piece you need to remove. Use Autoruns from MS Technet: technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx
Run the file, and you will probably see some entries in yellow or red (and also see it's about Conduit or Backgroundcontainer.dll). Just remove this entry and restart your computer.

Thanks Alexios, I follow your advise and I love the fact that you show me several programs that can help to clean. Honestly I install Malwarebytes but didn't detect this junkware.
