Unable to launch any executable file

Countinously Getting : "This application has failed to start because msnldgpvj.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

 It pops up every time any executable launches.  After the popups are all acknowledged by clicking the "ok" button the application still launches and functions as it normally would.

Re: Unable to launch any executable file

What is your Windows version? What programs you try to run and do you get this error for every program that you use? Does your Norton product work or it is affected too? It is a good idea to run live update and perform a full system scan to check your computer for infected files.

Re: Unable to launch any executable file

I have Windows XP. When the pop-up appears, I click "ok" or "esc" multiple times and the program I wanted opens. The only program that wouldn't open was the Norton security program. I re-installed the software and I can access it but the phishing filter turns off but on the Norton internet toobar indicates that the filter is on.

The problem started when I powered up the PC Wednesday morning.

Did you scan you computer for infected files? If not, it is a good idea to do so, and even run a second scan with a similar program, like Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Also try to reinstall other programs that you use and run them again.

I tried everything, including the scans. I still have this popup.

OK

The random.dll is part of the Conficker / Downadup infection

Try the Removal tool first http://www.symantec.com/security_response/writeup.jsp?docid=2009-011316-0247-99
