    RunDLL missing after upgrade to Win 10

    I have upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7, Home edition (this was fully up-to-date and no problems were encountered when using Win 7)

    It went relatively smoothly except I now get the message window: caption: "RunDLL" and body: "There was a problem starting C:\Program" "The specified module could not be found"

    This message box first appeared during the final stages of the installation just after it said it was going to install some more apps (no idea what they were or whether they installed), and now the message appears each time I boot up Windows 10.

    It is early days yet but so far this does not seem to have had any other effect on Windows 10 working normally.

    Does anyone have any ideas why and how to fix this issue?

    The PC is a small Acer laptop Aspire 1810TZ, 3Gb RAM, virus checker is Windows Defender, Windows 7 was pre-checked with Malwarebytes before I started the update.

    Many thanks

    Ian

    Use Autoruns or WhatInStartup to check and manage what it started when you boot. Autoruns produces an enormous amount of information. You should pay attention to the Logon tab.

    In either product look for an invalid path name.

    Joe, that was brilliant advice.

    Autoruns showed the problem to be the Gizmo Drive Delegate that was installed in Win 7 to emulate a DVD drive. Disabled it at startup cured the problem

    Autoruns also showed a few other issues that needed correcting, eg One Drive and Media Player.

    Once again, many thanks for your advice
