I think I just did something really stupid. Our Director was having problems with viruses on her computer and every time upon reboot, they would get the pop up message:
Cannot find C:\Windows\system32\proper.exe
I would close out this popup and everything started to run fine. I looked up this application and it described it as something that will show fake security alerts:http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/startups/p....exe-20479.html
I ran adware and spybot clean and sweeps, but the pop up would still upon reboot or logins. So I did a search in the registry and found it at:
For "Shell" the Value DAta was:
so, I deleted this value!!!!
Now, only a blank screen comes up with no icons. It is just the Windows Desktop background.
Can anyone show me how to unf*$! myself?
