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

Logilda.dll error message occurs when you start your desktop or laptop. It’s caused by an upgrade from Windows 10, but fortunately, it’s easy to fix. I got this message after upgrading to Windows 10 2004: There was a problem starting C:\Windows\System32\LogiLDA.dll. The specified module could not be found.

It didn’t work for my system: There wasn’t a Logitech file or entry to delete or disable.

Windows 10 Home Premium with; Logitech 2.1 speakers, and MK710 Logitech Wireless; Keyboard and Mouse combination.


Great info…thks


Thanks so much this helped


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.
