I'm getting the strtdrv.exe error message on startup. Is this a Trojan virus? Can someone tell me the best way to get rid of it.

My other computer has the Toy.exe virus. Any ideas to remove that will be appreciated too. I've used Kaspersky anti-virus and that seems to have removed the obnoxious screen message on startup. Does that mean the virus is fixed? Thanks.

If strtdrv.exe is the typos of startdrv.exe, visit HERE
To remove it, you can try "Housecall Online Scan" after invalidating System Restore.

You may have had a malware infection that was only partially removed.

Typically when you get a virus it makes an entry in your registry instructing your computer to run the virus every time you start. Your antivirus may have found the virus and deleted it, but this entry is still in your registry, which is why you are getting the error message. Using the AutoRuns utility you should be able to locate this entry and delete it.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
