When I turn on my computer i get box saying "Windows cannot find “C:\WINDOWS\sembako-dezjlmh.exe” Make sure you typed the
name correctly, and try again. To search for a file, click the Start button,
and then click Search. "

How can I get rid of this application or dialog box?

Thank you

Norton antivirus but no anti spyware besides the one included with norton. The CPU usage suddenly spikes and slows down the computer, I checked the processes but there is nothing that could slow down the computer so much... I'm gonna try turning it on in safe mode see if I can't find anything.
Thanks by the way

Did you use the option in MSCongfig to force a safe mode boot?

If so, be aware that using MSConfig to access (force) safe mode can be problematic when there is malware on your system and can make your computer unusable. Some types of malware can delete or alter the safeboot key in the registry resulting in the inability to reboot into safe mode or back to normal mode. If you use the /Safeboot option on the Boot.ini Tab to force safe mode when the F8 key does not work, it could have disastrous results. The Safeboot option modifies the Boot.ini file and you may be locked in a continuous reboot loop afterwards where you cannot get back to MSConfig and undo your selection.

Can you boot normally? If so, try using System Restore to return to a previous state before the problem began.
