I recently had the good luck to have gotten this piece of junk into my system. AdAware did a very good job of eliminating most of it. But there was still a startup for it with a peculier name I can't remember (something like "loaddll.exe"). After AdAware had completed, I was still able to find bridge.dll in a search, but it was invisible in Downloaded Program Files. Its size was not even reflected in the total folder size.
The only way I found to delete it was to enter the Recovery Console and delete it from there.
The obvious had eluded me. From the title of your error box, I rmember now that the startup for that bridge.dll malware was rundll.exe. Use Startup Control Panel to delete the startup and then try to delete bridge.dll. The dll didn't cause any problems after the startup was disabled, but it bothered me that it was there.
I was getting a error message when I would boot up. It said:
Error loading C/windows/downloaded program file/bridge.dll
also got this message:
The specified module could not be found. could not find the main class progam
arm will exit.
I had run Norton, AdAware, and Spybot. Just kept getting it.
I did a restore, now I get this:
Could not find the main class
could not find th main class, program will exit.
I have no idea what could be going on....
I run spybot, but have no idea what the hijack this is....
thanks for any help.
