Vista Load Error

Good day all,

On my wife's laptop, this error dialogue has begun appearing when Vista is first starting up. I can't find and reference to it online and am quite confused. If it is at all relevant, this began to appear about the same time as we installed Itunes on the system...

A picture of the error is below, but the main points are: RunDLL "Error loading winrrt32.rom"


Thanks for your help,

-Greg

Hell
vista is trying to load a rom file that isn't there. why it would even want to load a rom(read only memory binary file used to flash bios and firmware) file is beyond me. Check in your startup folder and delete any references to it. run regedit and search for winrrt32.rom and delete those keys.

Edit. my opinion is that this is either viral activity or a failed hardware install.

We have. There were not hits from a deep scan with an updated version of AVG free. I have not yet tried any other anti-virus program.
