Error on starup couldn't find damlg.dll

Hi there,

Forgive me if i have posted in the wrong section.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with SP1 running on my pc. I have the full retail version.

I keep getting this error on startup:

There was a problem starting C:\Users\<Username>AppData\Roaming\damlg.dll
The specifed module could not be found

This only came up after i had removed a virus from my pc. I ran CC Cleaner and on startup tab i found the following entry:

Yes | HKCU:Run | damlg | Microsoft Corporation | "C:\Windows\System32\rundll32.exe" "C:\Users\<Username>\AppData\Roaming\damlg.dll",filter_heuristics

As you can see it seems like it belongs to Microsoft but i did a quick google for damlg.dll and i couldn't find anything? I did a search on my pc and i couldnt find the damlg.dll.

Could someone advise what i can do next?

Thanks in advance,

  1. Open command prompt as admin and run sfc /scannow

    Will scan for missing or damged WIndows system file sincluding DLL's

    If nothing, use CCLeaner to remove the startup entry for damlg.dll as it could be a left over from the virus.
  2. I ran the sfc /scannow command and i got the following :) :

    Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.

    I then used CCCleaner to remove the startup entry for damlg.dll.

    Thanks again.
