Hello Everyone! I hope all of you guys had a great 2008 so far!!

This is my first time joining and posting, but I was recommended after seeing many good reviews. So I'm excited.

I am starting up my mom's laptop that I haven't added any new applications, installed anything, etc...it was fine. She didn't do anything funky to it either.

However, it took 10 mins to start today ( brand new laptop, never had this problem) and this pop-up showed up 7 times. Clicking OK obviously only temporarily solves the problem.

Windows XP btw


the pop up box says....

bcmwltry.exe-Unable to locate component

this application has failed to start because POWRPROF.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

~~I have no idea what bcmwltry.exe and POWRPROF.dll means, I even googled and wiki-ed it.

Please help somebody! I will be ever in your debt.

thank you and have a great night!

Hello mrs_bruce_wayne...

Have you tried running a system restore...doing that will sometimes solve these issues. The bcmwltry.exe error message is likely being caused by the laptop's wireless network tray icon software not loading...the other is part of Windows power management component.

Click Start, point to "All Programs", then "Accessories", then "System Tools", and select "System Restore". Choose to restore your computer to an earlier date and select a date prior to seeing the problem.

Let us know if the problem persists after doing this.

thank you very much wannabe1 for responding!

yeah, um...i fail to mention the most important thing, ( which is my fault, I'm sorry) is that we/I can't even get into the desktop, or like click on the icons. I can see the wallpaper and the icons, but I can't click anything. ( So it's like frozen or on a lock down, then the computer sounds busy, i can hear it). And then the error message pops up. And then I click OK ( what else can i do...=( ) and then it pops up again faster than i can click other icons.

=(

Ok...let's see if we can make use of the Advanced Startup Options.

Restart the machine and start tapping the F8 key. You should get an Advanced Startup Options screen. On this screen, use the arrow keys to select "Last known good configuration" and press "Enter".

If it doesn't start using that option, go to the screen again (restart - tap F8) and select "Safe Mode"...press "Enter". If Windows will start in Safe Mode, run the system restore as outlined earlier.

Let us know how you do with this.
