I found this site that discusses a hijacking of a system and how they resolved it. You should also get the program HIJACKTHIS in order to follow the instructions given in the last link.....the first links are where to get the HIJACKTHIS program and other programs to eliminate spyware.

Download, install, update, then run the free spyware removal tools from the links below:


Ad-Aware 6 Spyware Removal Tool

?Spybot Search & Destroy? Spyware Removal Tool

What type of background do you have displayed on the desktop? Have you tried changing it to the default "none" and does the message still occur?

The EXACT error message would sure help...Does that file name happen to be "Msyuv.dll" instead of the slightly different spelling that you gave? If that's the case, try installing the newest DirectX available at Microsoft. It should correct the problem:

DirectX 9.0c End-User Runtime

Hope this helps.
