    bridge.dll - is this malware/virus? (XP Prof/SP 1)

    In booting up this morning one of the computers in my office had this RUNDLL message: "Error loading C:WindowsSystem32bridge.dll The specified module could not be found."
    Is this malware or a virus? I did a manual scan with Lavasoft and nothing came up. I also did a manual scan with TrendMicro. It detected 1 infected file (TROJ_STILEN.A) but could not clean it. I also checked Trend's website and found 2 trojans BRIDGE.A & BRIDGE.B. but did not find any of those files on my system.
    Does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks.

    Sure sounds like spyware...take a look at the Anti Adware, Spyware, Hijack thread in the Spyware/Safe Computing forum.

    Thanks, guys. It took installing and running Spybot along with also running LavaSoft to get rid of the BRIDGE spyware. I also did a scan using PestPatrol and turned up 36 "pests" but I can't get rid of them unless I purchase PestPatrol! Spybot & LavaSoft do not show these files.
