Exclamation Windows 7 start up problem


Hello,
When I start up my laptop which has Windows 7, a box appears the same as the one shown in the picture, does anyone have an idea what this means or how I can possibley fix it?
(Note: I am a huge fan of retro game emulators for PC/Laptops, ever since I have started playing them on my laptop this problem has appeared, ROMs are basically a file that you must open in the emulator to run the game).

Try reinstalling your emulator if it is a Windows program, and do a search for that file in the error dialog.

I have un-installed the program, and deleted it. This problem is still appearing.
And I have no idea where to find the error dialog..

Look in event viewer.
Start - Control Panel-System and Maintenance-Administrative tools - Event viewer.

There is no 'System and Maintenence' option, however there is 'System and Security', but within this, there isn't administrative tools, or event viewer.

Aha, I have found the event viewer (thanks for the help), now where can I find the error dialog ?

Okay; I've run continous virus scan's, there have been no infections found.
I've also searched the view logger for 15 whole minutes for 'Winidg32.rom', and nothing happens. It just says searching and brings up no results.
I'll just have to put up with it appearing on start up.

Winidg32.rom is a Trojan horse what virus scanner are you using?

AVG Anti-virus version 9.

Even if it is a Trojan Virus, it says the specified module could not be found..
Hmm.. confusing.

Very! I can't think of what could be wrong.
Have you got your recover disk or a windows 7 setup disk?

Will it remove all my programs and files if I have to setup Windows 7 again ?

And no, we don't have a setup, or backup disk.

No, you can do a fix boot and it looks at the boot sector and sees if there is anything wrong with it.

I see the problem Mate download this:
http://www.dll-files.com/dllindex/dl...s.shtml?wing32
Restart and see if it works
