I run antivirus everyday - I was told I had to go to the microsoft web
site to fix a few problems I did that now I get this error everytime I
turn on my computer.


That .dll belongs to the My Web Search toolbar, which is malware. Apparently
your security program removed it but left the reference in Startup. Run
through some scanning for malware - antivirus programs are not the tools
for this - and then after you know the machine is really clean, manage your
Startup.

Start Orb>Start Search box>msconfig [enter]

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation,
type the password, or click Continue. Then see what is on the Startup tab.
You don't need to restart immediately, but the next time you do you'll get
a dialog saying you've used the Utility. Usually in Vista this will be
blocked by Windows Defender and you'll need to allow it so you can then
tick the box that says in effect, "don't bother me about this again".

Important - Do not use the System Configuration Utility to stop processes.
Instead, use Start>Run>services.msc [enter] and do not stop any services
unless you really, really know what you're doing.

The free Autoruns program is very useful for managing your Startup -
