    This message keeps popping up and I'm not sure what to do. Is it a
    virus? ToT
    I do not have any security programs except for windows defender. =[

    I'm not sure where this topic belongs!! Sorry if it doesn't belong
    here! =[

    Looks like it could be some kind of malware because that .dll file looks
    like a random name. Find that file in system32 folder and rename the
    extension to old, thyen reboot the PC, I bet when you reboot it will pop up
    again under a different name. If it does then it is definately malware of
    some kind. Try installing Superantispyware free to remove it. You can also
    try Malwarebites and/or Spybot Search and Destroy. If Defender allowed it
    through then it doesn't say much for Defender.

    Random file names usually mean malware/virus's.
    Since you say you "fly blind" it's London to a brick you are
    infected. Get a decent AV program installed.

    Security Programs for you to install.
    And, how to use them.

    http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-home.html

    Avast Anti-Virus is Vista compatible (32bit and 64bit Versions), FREE,
    auto-updating, and a low resources user of your computer.
    And, only have 1(one) Anti-Virus installed / running on your computer at any
    one time..
    Conflicts may occur if you have more than 1(one).

    http://www.spybot.info/en/index.html

    Spybot Search & Destroy 1.6 is a very good, FREE Anti-Spyware Program.
    Download, install, update, and immunize your System with it.
    Then SCAN with it.
    Update it, and scan your System once a fortnight.

    http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

    SpywareBlaster 4.1 is a non-intrusive, FREE Anti-Spyware Program that runs
    in the background (no scanning by you!).
    SpywareBlaster prevents the installation of many so-called spyware, adware
    and malware programs by disabling the CLSIDs of popular spyware ActiveX
    controls, and also prevents the installation of any of them via a webpage
    Update it once a fortnight, and let it do its work in the background!

    http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php

    Malwarebytes is as the name says, a Malware Remover!
    For the Free version scroll down their page to either download from
    Download.com, or Major Geeks.com

    Download, install, and update.

    Important re: Safe Mode
    If you happen to find a problem that you can’t uninstall / delete, reboot
    the computer, and go into Safe Mode.
    To get into Safe mode, tap F8 right at Power On / Startup, and use UP arrow
    key to get to Safe Mode from list of options, then hit ENTER.
    RESCAN your computer with Avast(or your AV) and Spybot S & D while in Safe
    Mode.
