Hi zulu7

There is no record of this file in our databases, or through a google search. Do you know what program this file is associated with? If it is an unknown, I would suspect a malware issue.

I suggest you upload the file to Jotti's Malware Scan and see what it tells you. Post the results here and we can go from there.

Hope this helps,
rigel

That is not a valid Win98 file.
Looks like a virus or malware of some sort to me!
Have you scanned for viruses yet?
In the beginning there was the command line.

Sorry...I posted this in the wrong topic. I'm running Windows XP Home edition. I've tried RegCure, and it didn't help.

I'm running Windows XP Home. I've tried RegCure, and the recovery CD, and still nothing.

Most likely this is an error message that pops up when you first start your computer. If this is the case, then it's likely that this is a remnant of an infection that you've removed from the system.

FWIW - a google for the file shows no results other than this thread. That's a warning sign for malware infections.

To remove the error message, use this free program: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspx
Scroll down the Image Path column until you find the path that you stated above, then remove the checkmark from the box on the left end of that line. That'll stop the error message.

If you think that you may still be infected, I'd suggest posting over in the "Am I Infected" forum: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/f/103/am-i-infected-what-do-i-do/
