Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

When one of our users logs onto a Windows Server 2008 R2 server with RDC, she receives the following 3 popups:

enter image description here

I can't find any mention of meray.dll, brape.dll or bryntb.dll on the web.

If I load msconfig on her RDC session, I can't see any mention of these in the Startup tab. Would some items be hidden? I loaded msconfig using my admin credentials.

How do we prevent these errors from opening on login?

It looks like your server (or the user, rather) is compromised. Random .dll names are characteristic of malware trying to execute on your machine. –  Nathan C Jan 23 '14 at 16:29
@NathanC: What should I do? Recreate the user account? –  Steve Jan 24 '14 at 0:49
Start with that and see where that leads. –  Nathan C Jan 24 '14 at 15:07
