    Strange Dll message

    Vista

    Every time I log in I get two annoying screen dll file messages.

    Error loading adesx.dll and Error loading tofof/dll

    I manually delete these messages. Can I prevent them from displaying ??

    First you would need to know what these dlls are for, and what applications or processes they are associated with.
    Try to do a search on your computer for these dlls and look through their root directory locations.
    If you find them, try right clicking and going to their properties, this might reveal more information on them. If not, more may be obtained
    by sending them to notepad to examine them from within notepad's natural hex editor.
    SysInternal's Process explorer may also be of some assistance.

    Try opening MsConfig, Click on the startup tab, and Click on the disable all button. Then reboot and see if you get the error messages. If you don't, use a process of elimination to determine the culprit.

    Happy to hear you solved your problem. i assume you were able to identify the offending app. You should probably uninstall it. If its one you want to keep, I would look for a newer version and/or reinstall it.
