Hi everyone. When I start my computer up I get three windows with identical error messages. The wimdow also sometimes appears in the middle of running a program. This is the error message:

Error loading C:\PROGRA~1\COMMON~1\System\SysMenu.dll
The specified module could not be found.

I am running Windows XP 32 bit.

This is the advice I have followed so far:1st: Download Auto Runs.

Click Here:
http://download.sysinternals.com/files/Autoruns.zip

Link basis: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx

2nd: Find the yellow highlighted Image Paths that ends with sysmenu.dll. Usually you can locate those image paths from Scheduled Task.

3rd: Right click then delete.

4th: Try to find all yellow highlighted Image Paths that ends with sysmenu.dll from "Everything tabs, delete them.
NOTE: Carefully choose image paths that ends sysmenu.dll only, if you deleted paths that are not high lightened then it might cause some trouble booting your PC.

5th: Reboot Computer

6th: Wait at least 5 minutes to confirm that the issue has been resolved. (sysmenu.dll usually appears within a minute from rebooting the computer. )

Unfortunately this has not worked.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you've followed those instructions you should have successfully deleted the corrupt file that was causing the problem. So now lets try to replace it with a valid one:

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories.
Right-click on 'Command prompt'
Choose 'Run as administrator'
Type 'sfc /scannow' and press Enter.

Thank you both for your replies to my post. Sorry I didn't get back sooner. I repeated what I did before and found that I had missed two files called SMupdate. I have deleted those now and so far the error message is not showing up any more. Thanks so much for your help. It is always good to know there is someone on answerbank who can help. Hugs to you both! xxx
