    How do I fix this ? atiadlxy.dll is not compatible says win repair. I did a scan w/ccleaner. No help there.

    explorer will not start right until it scans and then everything seams OK.

    acer LT with win 7

    I think this is one of those unsigned things AMD uses, can you delete it and try an update?

    This is one of those hidden registry files.
    Follow these instructions to show hidden files : Trick to Enable Show Hidden Files and Folders in Windows « My Digital Life

    Once you can see what you're looking for it can be repaired or removed.
    Read through this for a general overview : atiadlxx.dll - What is atiadlxx.dll?

    If you still want to intervene then backup the registry first : Back up the registry
    If things go sideways this will get you out of it.

    Now your first attempt should be to repair.
