Reinstall the program that needs this file from the original setup. That should do the trick. It's not a Windows file.

Thanks Kees, checking and found an article stating that it is an OS problem. Thank you for your input.

I don't believe it's an OS problem, I don't believe it's an "OS critical error" as some link you found states and I don't believe in any socalled fix except simply reinstalling it.

"rtl70.bpl is a VCL70
belonging to Borland Package Library
from Borland Software Corporation.

Non-system processes like rtl70.bpl originate from software you installed on your system."

That sentence, by the way, is the only useful information in that link. Forget all the crap about registry scanners and speed-up-my-computer programs. They only serve the makers to make money. They're useless for you.

Take a look for fixes online, I am pretty sure there are workarounds. As Kees stated it is not a Windows file, it is registry related and could have been created by a virus, a bit of research might be required. Good luck!

Re: disabling system restore
by Kees_B Forum moderator / December 26, 2011 10:58 PM PST

We don't advice to disable system restore. Quite often it's the easies solution to a problem.

Not advised by most moderators.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / December 27, 2011 12:41 AM PST

It closes the door to easy fixes and often you find it forces folk to reinstall the OS instead.

Bad advice in my opinion.
