First of all thank you to anyone taking the time to help me out.

As soon as I see my desktop, 3 windows pop up.
RUNDLL - could not run system32 gumunijo, tojedella, and kijokeso

I tried to run pro tools but i hit play and get the message-
DAE could not run audio drive fast enough... or something along those lines.
I'm diein here without pro tools. The faster someone could get back to me the better.

I don't think the exact message is "RUNDLL - could not run system32 gumunijo", but the meaning is clear.

Gumunijo is associate with malware (a trojan). The other 2 are unknown, but I assume they are associated. Apparently you did a succesful removal (congrats!), but left this. That's easy to remedy. In the start>run box (assuming you've got XP) type msconfig (+ OK), then go the startup tab and uncheck the 3 lines that give rise to these three messages. It are the commands to run these programs at boot. Since you removed them they don't exist any longer.

After that, I'd do a reinstall of the pro tools and see if it works now. If not, it could well be that the malware did more damage to your system. But please try, and post the full details of the error message (if it comes up).
Do other audio tools like Windows media player still work?

The message I get from Pro Tools is...
DAE can't get audio from the drive(s) fast enough. Your drive may be too slow or fragmented, or a firewire drive could be having trouble due to the extra firewire bandwidth or CPU load (-9073)

I defragged and used registry cleaner software. I reinstalled my audio card and as you said reinstalled pro tools after taking those files out of startup. No Luck Sad

I appreciate the help. Get back to me.

Pro Tools error

If you're using PT 7.4, here's a solution for you. Obviously ignore the last couple of settings as they apply to Macintosh, only. But follow the settings before them. The error has to do with the new "Elastic" feature of Pro Tools.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
