    Can you browse to that file, remove the DLL, and re-install Lexmark drivers?

    And if that doesn't work, let the tech take control of your computer for another 2 hours while you watch a movie. They're the ones getting paid ;)

    You most likely have a virus! Here are some steps: -Download CCleaner (its free) -Run CCleaner -Download A proficient Anti-Virus -Download a virus scanner (I don't know of any right now) -MAke sure NO ONE is tampering with your System 32 files! -If it is that bad (well vista is horrible) then run system restore and take it from there. If the problem persists then you must contact WINDOWS technichal support through fun. If you're computer is in warranty they may fix this at no additional charge (just be patient with them there accents are very hard to understand!)

    The problem is that the install from the Lexmark did not install the needed files or it missed them.

    What i would do to clear this issue is to clean the windows registry then uninstall the Lexmark Printer Software. (Then reinstall it back)

    The problem is with this software's behavior at START UP.

    Try reinstall your Lexmark Printer Software.

    If not disable it from start-up so it will go away.

    (Click Start > Run > type "msconfig" press enter > click the startup tab )

    This error popup is known to be caused by Lexmark printers. There is a solution to this error but you will have to start the printer manually:

    1.-Go to Start>>Run... (In windows XP)

    -Go to "Start" and type in the search field Run and click on the first program(Run) (In windows Vista) .

    2. In the Run... window type: "msconfig" (without quotes)

    3. Press Ok (In windows vista you will have to press Continue after OK)

    4. Click on the startup tab.

    5.Uncheck the LXCFCATS item.

    6. Restart your computer.

    7. This solution should get rid of the error pop-up.

    N.B.: After restarting your computer you will get a message, just check the bottom where it says not to display the message again.

    As I said in the beginning you will have to turn on the printer manually .

    Do a system restore to where the computer was working fine. If you the problem started with your printer uninstall the printer and reload the latest software and drivers

    I'd start by downloading ccleaner (free) and doing a registry scan to fix registry errors.
