From what little you told us about your problem and Judging from the fact that its in C:\doc~ Im guessing its the old OS protection worm(spain 07). Try http://www.malwarebytes.org/ if that does not get it we can go from there. This infection goes deep if I'm correct. If malwawrebytes does not take care of it manual removal is an option but not always an easy one depending on the users skill level. I cant be sure using only the information you gave us. Does your PC have any other symptoms like new desktop icons, a new toolbar on your internet browser, or strange browser activity (pop ups or redirects to OS protects site)?y2rescue109 wrote:i get this message when i start up my computer = error loading C:\docume~1\user\protect.dll anyway to fix or get rid of this error
Other system32 options use .dll's a lot like this, "protect.dll" is also associated with the Windows user password protect files but it should be in C:\Windows\System32 by default.
Get Malwarebytes first and Be sure to back up your system before you start trying to remove this in case you run into problems.

If it were me, I would run all anti spyware/malware programs in safe mode with networking, but everyone does the game differently.
