I have a user on a Windows 7 32bit machine. When this user logs in, they get the following error message:

"There was a problem starting C:\Users\xxxx\AppData\Local\eleluqizevaxikuf.dll - The specified module could not be found."

How can I determine what process or program is looking for this DLL? A Google search doesn't turn up any results for the specified DLL name.

  • Have you tried searching the registry for said DLL's filename? – oKtosiTe Jul 18 '12 at 7:39

Use Autoruns to find out which applications are starting during Windows start up. You can probably run each of these to find the offending program.


With a dll name like that it's time to run a full virus scan.

  • I think the fact that "There was a problem starting" it means the file is already gone. The problem here is that something still references it. A full virus scan couldn't hurt though. – oKtosiTe Dec 2 '10 at 18:00
  • Yes, a full scan found nothing – Brenton Taylor Dec 14 '10 at 19:34
