I'm getting a startup error saying "There was a problem starting msiyfu32.dll. The specified module could not be found." 

I'm running Win7 x64. Nothing in any web searches related to this file.

Could someone please look at their system and find it, and maybe email it to me telling me whereabouts to put it. Just pm me if you can do that and I'll let you know my address.

Thanks.

Does not exist on my system, have you looked at the event viewer to see if you can get more information about it?

Sounds like malware.
Download MBAM (Malware Bytes Anti Malware) and do a full scan.

It looks like a piece of malware that your virus scanner probably got rid of, but there will still be a call to run it when you boot up. If Windows is giving the error that it cannot find it, it means it isn't running. MBAM should find the thing that is trying to run it and remove it for you. 

Will not stab you

Does not exist on my Win7/64bit install.

Sounds like malware to me.

Just did full scan with mbam - no results. Full scan with msse - no result.

I've been installing software flatout as it's a new system, restarted several times last night okay, just today started this, have to see what the last few things I installed were. But I suppose they could have dome something to the software I installed earlier.

Event viewer - despite my title on this forum of master geek, I'm not. Seems asking lots of dumb questions can get you that! So I've never looked at that before - it's quite confusing.

Looking at system restore there was a windows update this afternoon, heaps in fact, it's still catching up with all the updates from the fresh install. May have to start uninstalling until it goes away!

Yeah looks like some security thingy removed it. I'll remove the startup entry and keep trucking until I go to use some programme and it won't go! Thanks.
