FIX: There was a problem starting C:\Windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll

After upgrading my OS to Windows 8.1, the following error occurred at my pc at every Windows startup:

RunDLL: There was a problem starting C:\Windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll
T
he specified module could not be found.

I found out LogiLDA.dll to to be a DLL-file of the Logitech Download Assistant. Well, I can assure you I never installed this software on my pc, but still it somehow managed to get into my Run-section in the registry.

The following options will stop the error message popping up:

1) Open Task Manager, either by

  • pressing CTRL-ALT-DELETE –> Task Manager, or by
  • WIN+R –> type taskmgr and click OK

2) Go to the Tab Startup, right-click LogiLDA and click Disabled

Another option is to delete the registry key. To do so, follow these steps:

1) Open your Registry Editor (regedit.exe)
2) Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
3) Locate the key Logitech Download Assistant , right-click and delete

Logitech gone, problem solved Smile

Thank u so much…for those that are trying to find “logiLDA” I didn’t click on that,,,right clicked on “Logitech Download Assistant” which is under NAME and next to that is PUBLISHER “Logitech, Inc.”

win10, while opening taskmanager at startup shown unnamed disabled “program” with startup impact “not measured”? – but no named specific logiLDA? Other startups were normaly named with respective program names….would try through registry … thanks anyway as seems that the error itself does not cause any damage to computer work or efficiency apart annoying popup notice..

Same thing here, there is no “logiLDA” listed in following any of the directions listed above yet the popup still shows and is driving me nuts. I have had no logitech products ever installed in my computer and yet this started about 4 days ago from the date I left this message. Please follow up with another option to correct this as it keeps popping up and driving me crazy since I can not seem to fix it.
