Recently, every time I restart my computer I have been getting this error message:


This program cannot start because OpenCLD.dll is missing.

This seems to prevent games from running. If I reinstall DirectX and my Graphics card drivers they work again. Does anyone have an idea of what could be causing this problem every time I restart?

I'm running Windows 7 with an AMD Redeon HD 6700 Graphics card.

Have you tried reinstall amd radeon drivers? – week Dec 2 '12 at 19:12
Yep, sorry should have said originally. – Adam Ulivi Dec 4 '12 at 7:43
@AdamUlivi - What version of DirectX are you install exactly? – Ramhound Dec 6 '12 at 12:56

Never found a solution. The problem seemed to get worse and there was a start-up error every time I tried to restart. Tried restore points and turning off updates but nothing worked. In the end I had to format the hard drive and do a fresh install.
