Windows 7: P17 RunE.dll error

23 Oct 2009   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit
P17 RunE.dll error

Hey everyone,

I've got a bit of a problem and I'd appreciate any help y'all can give. I upgraded to 7 last night and now on booting up I get the following error:

There was a problem starting P17RunE.dll. The specific module could not be found.

I know that this is from a Creative driver. I was having problems a few weeks ago with my Soundlbaster Audigy, so I pulled it out and swapped to the onboard sound. Apparently I hadn't removed all the drivers. I have done so now. I uninstalled all of the drivers through Creative and then installed guru3d driver sweeper to remove the rest. There is currently nothing left on my computer from Creative yet I still get this error on bootup. I even uninstalled the Realtek drivers for the onboard sound to make sure that there was nothing interfering and am running with the generic windows 7 drivers right now.

So, if anyone has any tips on how to remove this it would be greatly appreciated. Right now this is really slowing down my computer on bootup. Thanks for your time.
