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 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.
Also, once you’re clean you should create a new Restore Point
to prevent possible re-infection from an old one.
> System Tools
and click System Restore
. Choose the radio button marked Create a Restore Point
on the first screen then click Next
. Give the Restore Point a name and then click Create
. Then use Disk Cleanup
to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point. Go Start
and type: "Cleanmgr" (without the quotes). Click Ok
> More Options
tab > Clean Up
in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
