It re-creates the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run folder and it looks like HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run-. I just deleted the folder and removed it from msconfig Startup and everything works fine now.

Boot into Safe Mode, open msconfig and delete bridge.dll then open C:\Windows\system32 and delete bridge.dll and bridge.ini then remove Registry keys relating to bridge.dll If you run Win95-98-ME you should also check C:\Windows\system32 and remove any references to bridge.dll from system.ini and win.ini. Then reboot OUT of SAFE MODE.
