Hi everyone,

When I start my PC, which is running XP, I have This window pops up:

ERROR: Could not locate INF file 'C:\WINDOWS\inf\GETPLUSoPlus.inf ...

I click OK and then my desktop will show up and everything seems to be fine. But it's very annoying and I'm concerned it could be some type of virus that wasn't blocked. I could not seem to find much when I Googled this.

Any one can help me with it? :thumbsup:

I shouldn't worry about it too much, I can't find anything about this on the net.

Do you have an anti-virus or any security software installed?

Let me know,

Yes, I use McAfee. I also use SpyBot and AdAware spyware removal tools.

The only thing I found was a thread from a viprasys.com site but couldn't see all the info as I'm not a member there. This tech was able to get rid of it apparently. See if it makes any sense to you. Here's the link:

Have you scanned your system recently?

If so what were the results?

The thread in the link refers to using ComboFix.

However this should NOT be used unless instructed to by someone qualified.

I'll have a look around for you and will post back if i find anything.

Thanks. Last few times I've scanned with Adaware and Spybot were negative. On bleeping computer I have used Hijack this and Smitfraud fix under the direction of somebody in that forum. Both are still on my desktop. Should I repost this there with a copy of my HJT log?

Also sometimes at Startup Spybot detects this same infoplus thing trying to do a registry change which I have been denying so far. Is this a legitimate MicroSoft file? Should I allow the change or delete the key?

Quietman?

Da Chew?

Anybody? :thumbsup:

I would remove it, watch out for teatimer, it's a powerful tool, I quit loading it on compters, it messed them up worse than malware

Is that what it is? I recently got some kind of error that metioned teatimer too. I will get rid of that registry then and see if it takes care of the situation. Thanks Chewy! :thumbsup:

It worked!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

:thumbsup: CHEWY

I love this bleeping site. You guys rock! Thank you so much.

BTW, a few seconds after startup my screen goes black for like 2 seconds and then comes back on. I always feel like this is some kind of spyware that's taking a kind of "snapshot" of my computer. Am I being paranoid? :flowers:

Mine does the same thing, I think it's the final video driver loading, after 2 1/2 years it seems to take a little longer, probably some other files also

Probably my bloated registry

If it ain't broke I ain't fixing it
