A resource dll file is one that a program relies on to run. Apparently
something is trying to run and either cannot locate its required library
file, or the file is located but is corrupt. As it is trying to load with IE
as well as other applications, at a guess I'd say it is likely to be a
plug-in. Close IE and any other running applications. Go to Internet Options
in the Control Panel and click on the Programs tab. Click on "manage
addons", then start disabling those that load with IE. Restart IE inbetween
to see if the message dissappears.
