Hello. I'm deba. I'm having a problem in my PC - a diaglog box appears at startup showing a message : "cannot find winmtipg.exe...." what is the cause for this? Is it due to any virus? Please help.

You sure that message is correctly spelled? I find nothing, using Google.

Hi deba, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Is this winmpg.exe that you are seeing?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I'm having a problem in my PC

is this the only problem you are having ?
we know you are on XP but what protection do you have on there and when did you last fully update it all and run scans with it?

The message you're inquiring about yielded 0 results at Google, Microsoft, Linux Ubuntu and Open Source
It is not a known windows executable program.
You might want to post your problem in the HJT Forum as it might be malware.

with respect, there are many tools that can be run outside the HJT forum that can identify and remove malaware
if you look at the HJT section on here you may see it is a wee bit 'busy'?

if possible it is preferred for HJT logs to be run only as a last resort after many scans have been run that will identify and remove nasties;HJT logs may be requested only if malware is NOT removable with the tools available on THIS 'side' OF the HJT section

I for one think we need far more info ON the computer and the problem that we already have including what if any protection programs have already been run ON it and what they flagged up

I've defragmented my hard disk and the message "Cannot find winmtipg.exe..." was gone at the next startup.
