    You should just re-install Windows to be sure.

    Yup, reinstall windows would be your best bet. Since your computer is so slow, it will allow you to start clean. Just backup your documents or whatever you want to save.

    Back up all important documents and scan them all to ensure none are infected.Best to use a hd diagnostic disc complete a full wipe down of the hard drive this will take several hours but will completly remove everything off your hd then re install windows.

    Sounds like you picked up a trojan. do a web search on win.dll. you may be able to fix your problem without a reinstall of windoze. if that fails then I would suggest as the others have. it all depends on if you want to do a reinstall. good luck
