To resolve TBVerifier.dll issue, you can use Autoruns for Windows or open up Windows registry editor, search for TBVerifier.dll and delete all entries you find. You can also remove this error message by removing the start-up entry in the Windows Task Scheduler. I recommend using Autoruns. Once the problem is fixed, scan your computer with anti-malware software. Stay safe folks!
