I get a pop up when I boot my laptop with XP PRO. I says it can not find C:\windows\system32\bridge.dll.
I also crash to a Blue Screen at random times. Could these be related? How can I fix this?
dll is related to adware of some sort, and crashing certainly could result. Here’s
what I suggest:
this thread out at Castlecops discussing bridge.dll, the adware
that uses it, and some steps to remove it.
spyware scan. (Make sure the program and spyware definitions are up to date.)
virus scan. (Make sure the program and virus definitions are up to date.)
If the crashes persist, run the
System File Checker to
see if your system was damaged.
