Hi :thumbsup:.

http://forums.cnet.com/5208-6122_102-0.htm...ssageID=3105412

Is the above also your post? If so, did you try reinstalling then uninstalling Spyware Terminator?

<<C:\WINDOWS\INSTAL~1\{4A65D~1\_A685C~1.EXE>>

Based on what you have submitted and a review of my own Windows folder...what appears to be scrawl may relate to a folder that was/is in the Windows Installer folder of your system.

The error may be occurring because there's a pointer to startup an item which no longer exists. If so, this pointer can be removed by using a program like AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx . In using Autoruns, look only at items appearing on the Logon tab of Autoruns.
