    RunDLL (Not Responding) message box at every startup


    I get this RunDLL (Not Responding) message box every time I restart the computer. The rest of the message says "There was a problem starting C:\Users\SHERRY\AppData\Local\Conduit\BackgroundContainer\Background Container.dll The specified module could not be found." I have included a snip .png of the message box.

    I found a help page searching online, but it was totally useless. I will attach this information as a .pdf file, if interested. The files instructed to be deleted in the 'regedit' would not delete at all. And I still don't know if I was intended to delete the the entire folder with sub-folders, but since they couldn't be deleted it doesn't matter. These folders and the files listed in them did not seem to have anything to do with Conduit Ltd. A couple of these 'Regedit' folders were not even listed.

    I'm still searching online, but this help page seems to be the only one that deals with my specific RunDLL message box at startup. that being the Conduit Ltd.

    It's that Conduit program that is the basis for some toolbars. Conduit is not bad in itself, but it has been used as an exploit to make malware toolbars.

    Just uninstall all conduit programs, most likely yout Antivirus deleted part of it so now you got this.

    If the installer does not work, just look in your Program Files folders and delete any Conduit folders in there as well.

    You might also want to check the Task Scheduler to see if the Backgroundcontainer is trying to run from there. Sometimes even after you uninstall all of the conduit junk it still remains in the Task Scheduler.
