    "C:\ProgramData\ljleKtopg.dat" Failed to load

    Hello people. I have joined this site hoping to get to help with the issues I have after updating from windows 8 to 8.1. I have been pulling my hair out because after loading this update it has screwed up my laptop.

    Firstly after my laptop eventually starts I get the following error message

    The module "C:\ProgramData\ljleKtopg.dat" Faile to load
    Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path, or debug it to check for problems with the binary oe dependent .DLL files.

    The specified module could not be found

    The other main problem is

    Sometimes when surfing the screen will freeze and sometimes it will start again after about 10 seconds, or it will just stay frozen and I have to switch the laptop off, and then restart it. When I restart it I get the following message on the screen, Configuring windows update, 100% complete, do not turn off your computer. This will stay on the screen for an average of 35 minutes before it goes, and my laptop starts. This happens a couple of times a day and it's doing my head in because it was fine before I had to do the 8.1 update.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    As for the dat file; I'll take a wild guess that this might be the residue of a malware that Windows Defender or your virus program cleared up.
    The name of the file seems random generated (typical of malware) and the fact that it's in Program Data also smells a bit fishy.
    Doesn't seem like a legit name of a file. Perhaps your upgrade cleared out whatever it was.
    Check your startup items in the Registry and in Task Manager to see if there is something Windows is trying to start that doesn't seem legit. I am not one to shout "virus" or be dramatic about that, but you might just want to do a scan of your windows directory, Program Files folders and your Users directory.

    CCCleanear and HiJackThis tells you if something has been messing with your settings - consider running those for this type of problem.

    As for you problems with Windows update - either just hide that update and forget about it, alternatively run sfc /scannow from the command prompt to correct anything funny on your setup that might prvent the update from goingin.

    Since these are quite different issues they probably belong in different threads, particularly if it ends up taking a while to get to the bottom of it.

    This was the short response - if you are unsure how to do any of what I suggested, please google it, and if it's still not clear, then post back here.
