Recently when i turn on my PC ive been getting this strange error message, i normally click 'ok' and just continue but its getting annoying now seeing this error every time i turn on my pc. i Even wiped my PC but the problem still came back.

Does anyone know what causes this error? can you explain to me? :eek:

Hi Method

What does the error message say?

You said you wiped your pc - do you mean that you did a clean install of Windows?

Here's the error message.

The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memeory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occured because the DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\HHCTRL.OCX occupied an address range reserved for Windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.
