I had someone tell me they kept getting the message:

Cannot find 'http://žxi Ǽ...' make sure the path or internet address is correct

Every time they'd start Internet Explorer 7.

I scanned with Malware bytes, but it didn't fix the problem. I then ran Autoruns. The user told me that this started happening yesterday some time. I went to the internet explorer section of Autoruns, and found that an add-in
googletoolbar.dll had a modified date of yesterday afternoon. It also oddly didn't have the Google, Inc. tag under the software vendor column. So I un-installed the Google Toolbar, and deleted the Program Files directory, and the error message stopped coming up.

I don't know if it was Malware trying to replace the google toolbar, or if the google toolbar itself was broken, but anyway that's what fixed my issue. I know Christo82 posted about this problem below, but I could not reply.

Posting a fix not a problem
