    its part of a spy softwear program and not needed as adawear has got rid of the actual program, do a search for the offending item " bridge.dll " and delete it, all it does is create a bridge for the spy softwear to link all your files where you have been on the net to send them info

    the library file is missing hence the error message.

    Some program or a line in one of ur system .INI files is calling for that library which has been deleted.

    Found nothing under the search. Guess thats why the error popped up, cos i deleted it and it could not find it. Now, the problem is, how to get rid of this message :?:

    click on start menu and run
    type sysedit and then remove any line that looks to bridge.dll
    also do the same but type regedit and then search for bridge.dll and remove entries
    that will get it as i had the same thing

    oh yeah, under sysedit there will be 4 windows

    system.ini
    win.ini
    config.sys
    and autoexec.sys

    the last 2 i mentioned wont contain the problem as they are an old dos requirement that has now been superseeded - could be in either of the others but expecting win.ini as system.ini is usaully run before getting to desktop and then win.ini is run after explorer has booted.

    Hope that makes sense - but it could also be in the reg so regedit will pick that up - just click edit, find and type bridge.dll - delete entry if it finds 1 and then find next to see if it can find another. - repeat till clean
