Hi,

A pop up message "can not find script file "E:\Windows\UjBright_Antivirus.vbs"" is displayed as and when I start /restart my computer.

I have Win XP Professional installed in E: drive (in fact my PC has mulit OS, the other is Win2k3 installed in C: drive). Also my system has CA Anti Virus, Anti Spyware and firewall installed while in XP.
Scanned the entire system with the above software for Virus and spyware and based on the results removed the 1 spyware found.

Please let me know what this pop up means and what am I supposed to do to remove it.

Thanks & Regards
Sridhar

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.
