Solving \\nengine.dll module cannot be found

I am getting random ads on my computer lately so I run a scan on my computer. Superantispyware found several adware and was deleted immediately. However, there is one entry that it didn’t take any action and it is pointing to folder ‘C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\\nengine.dll’.

After restarting my computer, I immediately received error messages saying:
“There was a problem starting C:\User\user\AppData\Roaming\\nengine.dll. The specified module could not be found. ) .”

I suspect that deleted files have something to do with this error. My laptop is fairly new and I still have not made any restore point or backup so there is no way to use that feature.
I just hope that there is no system or critical files deleted while solving this problem. If ever I have deleted system files or something like that, is there any way to restore them aside from system restore? Also, how can I get rid of this pop-up problem completely if I cannot remove the problematic folder?

Please help me as soon as you can, I will be using the laptop for Travel so I need to clean it right away.

Many Thanks,
Bronz Charlie

    NewNext is considered as adware. It only means that adware is present on the computer. The “\\nengine.dll module cannot be found” is also referring to a missing file that may have already removed by your antivirus program. However, the system is calling it during start-up due to the presence of registry entry.

    Try this one:
    1. Go to Start > Run, then type msconfig.
    2. Select Startup tab to show list of items that runs when you boot Windows.
    3. Look for presence of newnext or engine.dll then disable it by removing the ‘check mark’ beside the item.
    4. Click on Apply and then OK. You must restart the computer for changes to take effect.

    Hope this helps.
