Good Day again to all you Gurus,
Running XP Home/SP3.

A few weeks ago a virus wiped my hard drive. Had the hard drive reformatted and Windows reinstalled. I reinstalled all my programmes and everything has run fine. A couple of days ago on Start Up I started getting the following message:-
Shfolder Binary Installer.
Command line option syntax error. Type Command/? for Help.

I tried doing a Restore to an earlier date but still get this message.
I ran Malwarebytes and nothing found.

I would appreciate any help that you can give me,
George.

Seems to be an error resulting from various things, I see nothing definitive (that I can interpret).

The application named...is immaterial, IMO.

The basic error message is what I keyed on.

Well...what changed on your system...to precipitate this error message?

Have you checked Event Viewer for possible clues?
