Have you searched for the file to see if it exists in your system?

You may need to enable the viewing of Hidden files and Folders :

1.Close all programs so that you are at your Desktop.
2.Double-click on the My Computer icon.
3.Select the Tools menu and click Folder Options.
4.Select the View tab.
5.Place a checkmark next to: Display the contents of system folders.
6.Under the Hidden files and folders check: Show hidden files and folders.
7.Remove the checkmark from: Hide file extensions for known file types.
8.Remove the checkmark from: Hide protected operating system files.
9.Press the Apply button and then the OK button

Now, search for the file (c:\windows\kbdoxse.dll) , and post back on the results.

Also, has your computer been infected recently?

My laptop continues to look for that file when I log on,but clearly it no longer exists. It must have been inserted by Thinkpoint malware and removed by and antivirus program.

Open an elevated command prompt | type cd \ and hit enter, this will return you to the root of your systemdrive | type attrib kbdoxse.dll /s and hit enter | If the file exists, it'll be returned here.

As per my post to you in your dupe of this topic, parse the registry for that filename and, if you're happy to, delete the entries.
