When booting up, an error message pops up everytime and I don't know what it
is, why, or if it is dangerous to infect my computer and lastly, what should
I do?
The message is:
Error Loading
P2Socks_1043DLL

A Google search for "P2Socks_1043DLL" and for "P2Socks_1043.DLL" brings
up nothing. Do the normal malware scanning, using updated tools and
doing all scans in Safe Mode:

After you know your computer is 100% virus and malware-free, if the
problem still occurs do some clean-boot troubleshooting:

How's your high school French?
'WIN32:p 2E-6 : virus trojan'
(http://www.sur-la-toile.com/viewTopic_4667_5_cheval-de-...)
Seems like P2Socks and it's varients are Virus/Spyware related.
Suggests you go to Trend Micro 'Housecall'
(http://housecall.trendmicro.com/) and try an online scan.
If this cannot be cleaned using conventional means, you may have to
download a file called HiJack This; 'Merijn' (http://www.merijn.org/)
and post your results to the forums listed at his site for help.
Best,
