If this has only been going on for a short time try doing a System Restore.

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.

The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

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

It sounds like you have had malware that was recently removed.
Windows is trying to load this win.exe at startup but it cannot find the file.

There are multiple ways to do this.

You can use a free tool such as MSCONFIG (type msconfig in a run box) or winpatrol (http://www.winpatrol.com/download.html )

However the best method is to remove the entry direct from the registry:

"Changes made to the Windows registry happen immediately, and no backup is automatically made. Do not edit the Windows registry unless you are confident about doing so."
