I am getting the following error message:


Run DLL error message/background container.dll


There was a problem starting

c:\users\ed\appData\local\conduit\backgroundco container\background container.dll

Fix 1:

  • Here we have the fix, RunDLL is a legitimate Windows file that executes/loads .dll (Dynamic Link Library) modules which too will be legitimate ( genuine /authenticated ) or at other cases sometimes malware related. 
  • A RunDLL "Error loading... message usually occurs when the .dll file (Dynamic link library file) that was set to run at the startup in the registry or as a scheduled task has been deleted. 
  • Obviously Windows is trying to load this file / file(s) but cannot able to locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan.
  • However, in general an associated orphaned registry entry still remains and is telling to Windows to load the file when it was booting up
  • Since the file no longer exists over there, so the Windows will display an error message. 
  • You need to remove this registry entry so that “Windows stops searching for the file when it loads”. 

In order to resolve this issue, we need to download AutoRuns and save it to our Desktop.

  • After that, create a new folder on the hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there in that path.
  • Proceeding further, we need to Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it in order to use.
  • Vista/Windows 7/8 users right-click and select Run as Administrator while performing this operation.
  • We need to be patient as it scans through and populates the entries.
  • When the scanning was completed, it will say Ready at the at the bottom and list all of the entries under the Everything tab.
  • In the top menu, we need to click File > Find... and type the file name (backgroundcontainer.dll) related to the error message, then we need to click Find Next.
  • Alternatively, at other cases we can scroll through the list and look for any entry related to backgroundcontainer.dll and conduit.
  • If found, right-click on the entry and choose delete.
  • Exit Autoruns and reboot the computer when it was done.

Fix 2:

We have an another fix for this issue,

1. Go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools.

2. Open Task Scheduler and click on the Task Scheduler Library.

3. Look through the list for an entry related to BackgroundContainer.

4. If found, then we need to right-click on it and select the option Delete.

5. Exit all the programs and reboot the computer when it was completely done.
