My son's laptop has started displaying a popup dialog box when he starts the system up. the error message is below
"windows cannot find loader.exe make sure you typed the name correctly then try again to search for a file click the start button and then click search"
This dialog box obviously has an OK button and normal window close,zoom,minimize etc. This normally happens just prior to live messenger (i think that's the version he's running) starts.
I've run as-aware 2007 against the system and installed AVG and ZoneAlarm. I've checked various sites which seem to think this could be a malware problem? Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
Additionally I was wondering whether this could adversely effect wireless connectivity or could I be barking up the wrong tree and looking at a separate issue?
Thanks in advance and apologies if I'm wasting your time, but I'm at a loss as to what it may be.
