Start Up Error Message RRS feed

  •  

    On start up I get an error message:

     

    RUNDLL

    Error Loading

    C:\Windows\system32\winsys16_061230.dll

    The specified file could not be found.

     

    This message started appearing in the last 2-3 days. At that time there was furious activity on my BSNL's DataOne broadband connection even when my IE was not running. At that time my McAfee Enterprise 8.0.0 with Scan Engine 5200 and DAT version 5152 was repeadedly deleting or cleaning from my systems: svchest.exe (Trojan-Malaware), scrsys 16_061230.scr and winsys 16_061230.scr which McAfee identified as Trojan - Spy Agent.br. At that time I also for once deleted all my cookies and tem files via Internet Options of IE. The furious activity seeme to stop after I got a Windows Live OneCare Full Free Safety Scan at

    http://onecare.live.com/site/en-us/default.htm?s_cid=sah

    and after I set my Popup Blocker on my IE6.0 SP2 at high. But I continue to get the above RUNDLL message even though in no way it stops the normal functioning of my computer. Can somebody please help? Also though my IE is programmed to delete all temp files on closing, it doesnot seem to do as they appear on running disk cleanup. Why so? Or are these Temp files different? How does one remove pernicious cookies that do not get removed on shutting down of the computer?

     

    In brief my PC comprises of the following:

    AMD Athlon 3200+ processor, MSI motherboard, Windows XP-2 with Firewalls preloaded, MS Office XP(2003), IE 6 SP2, McAfeeEnterprise 8.0.0, BSNL's DataOne Broadband.

     

    I use my system primarily for homebased medical trancription work. Never for online games.

    Dear Friend,

     

    1)        You are getting this windows startup error because this file winsys16_061230.dll has been deleted by an 

               antivirus or spyware remover programme.

     

    2)         And this entry is in windows startup programme, as this entry in WINDOWS REGISTRY

     

    3)        Type regedit in windows run prompt and search for  winsys16_061230.dll this entry, you will find

               "C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,rundll32.exe C:\WINDOWS\system32\winsys16_061230.dll start"

               Modify this entry to as below :-
     
              C:\WINDOWS\system32\userinit.exe,rundll32.exe start

    4)        Restart your PC & check the error will not come........

  • I am in awe of your knowledge of correcting the problem!  I too had a Trojan virus deleted by my security software and received this message the next time I booted.  Since something deleted the module from my computer, I'm wondering if the module may be important to the integrity of windows.  Perhaps that is why the virus delted the module?  Is there is a way to get it back without re-installing windows.  I'm afraid that the above solution my be masking a problem.  Am I worrying too much?
