Alright i'll try and make this as detail as possible.

I am a laptop user and i usually download songs, games and such. A few months ago, after i deleted some stuff of my lap, only at startup, a message would say " Cannot find ( I dont really remember but i remember it was MYWEBSEAR.DLL ). Later i sent it to a shop to be formatted. And i was lucky too since i dont remember the motherboard password and the guys managed to hack through.

Anyway, now i'm using the same lap, downloading music and stuff and after i visited this site and downloaded the Anti-Viruses, Firewalls and Spywares recommended. Safe to say, it pretty much worked. So today, i downloaded a Download Accelarator and when i tried to installed, my NOD antivirus window threat appeared and told me to terminate the Trojan inside the file. And i did.

A few minutes later, i restarted my laptop and at startup, messages like " Could not find C://Documents " and " Could not find Desktop " and " Cannot find " and "
appeared.

I fear the same thing is going to happen i have to format it again. Can anyone help me please? I'll be checking this post for an hour. Thank you.

PLease run this fix by quietman7,using Autoruns.



Its not unusual to receive such an error after using specialized fix tools.

A "Cannot find...", "Could not run...", "Error loading... or "specific module could not be found" message is usually related to malware that was set to run at startup but has been deleted. Windows is trying to load this file but cannot locate it since the file was mostly likely removed during an anti-virus or anti-malware scan. However, an associated orphaned registry entry remains and is telling Windows to load the file when you boot up. Since the file no longer exists, Windows will display an error message. You need to remove this registry entry so Windows stops searching for the file when it loads.

To resolve this, download Autoruns, search for the related entry and then delete it.
Create a new folder on your hard drive called AutoRuns (C:\AutoRuns) and extract (unzip) the file there. (click here if you're not sure how to do this.)
Open the folder and double-click on autoruns.exe to launch it.
Please be patient as it scans and populates the entries.
When done scanning, it will say Ready at the bottom.
Scroll through the list and look for a startup entry related to the file(s) in the error message.
Right-click on the entry and choose delete.
Reboot your computer and see if the startup error returns.

Thanks for the help. The messages are gone now, but now My Computer starts at every startup. But i dont really mind it though. I usually open My Computer anyway to check the memory and scan some files. Thanks for the help, i appreciate it.

My Computer opens at Windows startup

This step involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.
