    help!!! after virus problem

    The module C:\Users\jsofe_000\AppData\Local\A\dasdfg21.dll failed to load.
    Make sure the binary is stored at the specified path or dependent.DLL files.

    After a virus attack, when you start the computer, I get this message and do not know what to do and what the consequences should be expected.Thanks in advance for any help.

    Open Task Manager, look at Startup tab. Check for any items that don't look normal and tell us the names so that we can look more into them.
    1. You can reinstall windows this will be the best option as you can eliminate the possibility of virus, some hide and resurface again later.
    2. SFC /SCANNOW Command - Run in Windows 8 Do a system file checker and hope for the best. You can start with option 3 to get an overview and analyzes, will let you know if it will be able to do anything about it. Option 1 will go straight into the job and search, find, and repair if possible.
    3. Wait for more advice from other users.

    dasdfg21 does not seem like a familiar part of windows, very likely it was leftovers from the infection and your software failed to do a CLEAN removal of it. Which happens a lot, Do you know what virus had infected you? A name could give us better information on what it does and where it keeps all of it's parts.

    Hi Jossof,

    You need to check the following areas:

    1. Press WINDOWS + R on your keyboard.
    2. Type "msconfig" then press ENTER.
    3. Go to the Startup tab and untick any entry that matches that file. Match the file in error message and the command line column on the Startup tab.

    Check the Task Scheduler for related entry as well.

    Scan your computer using a security software such as Trend Micro Internet Security or Malwarebytes Anti-Malware.

    I like to use Avast Anti-Virus...It gives you the option to do a boot time scan, and I have been able to get rid of a few viruses on others computers that other Virus Scanners have left behind...might be worth a try
