Default Confusing Trojan Virus

Hello,
I've recently found out that I have a Trojan Virus called 'Winidg32.rom'
I have run several virus scans (Using AVG Anti-Virus 9), and they haven't found any viruses, or infections.

I had a Trojan Virus a couple of weeks ago, and removed it with no trouble.

However, when I start up my laptop a warning appears as follows:


(Note: I've had this appear for a few weeks, but I had no idea it was a Trojan)
Thanks in advance.

Same as the other post, I put it in the wrong forum section last time, because I had no idea it was a virus.

it looks like a fragment of a program that keeps crashing. search it and see if it is part of a certain program

Essentially what that message is saying is "I was told to load up this dll when you start up your computer, but I can't find it anywhere so I'm afraid I haven't been able to load it."

If you've removed the virus completely it's probably harmless - just damn annoying.

You could always try unregistering it (though if it doesn't exist I'm not sure it'll work.)

Start => Run:
Code:
regsvr32 /u C:\windows\system32\winidg32.rom
