    Upgraded to 8.1 got this message upon log in

    I keep getting this annoying message after logging in under 8.1. I never got that before:


    The Specified module could not be found.

    It was in a window with the title RunDLL

    Please help me. It doesn't prevent me from using the computer and I think it is a spyware residual (Conduit) which
    I had removed via Spyhunter....

    Thank you for any help you might be able to give me.

    Conduit in itself is a toolbar package that is mostly harmless, but it depends on who made it. I use it for my Band:

    Its the only toolbar I ever use, but Malwarebytes still detects it as Malware. I only use it for personal use, and I block features that are potentially malicious.

    If you are having trouble removing it, Conduit Themselves show you how to get rid of it, and I trust their method.

    It looks like an error message which should NOT be there. How do you get rid of it?

Question for those who have upgraded to 8.1
I have a ton of apps installed atm (cs5 suite, visual studio 2010, steam with 100+ games, skype, etc). Will the upgrade damage any of these installations? Any advice from anyone who's gone about it, how damaging is it? Thanks !

Why I upgraded
My reason is very simple. Windows 7 Home Premium does not support more than 16 GB of RAM. My new rig has 32 GB of RAM I could have gone to Windows 7 Pro - but that actually cost more than upgrading to Windows 8 Pro, and 8 Pro was readily available at our local Staples store. That is it in...
