If you search for that file in our Startup Programs Database, you will find the following entry.
I recommend you follow the steps below:

1.) Go to start > run and type: cleanmgr and click ok.
Let it scan your system for files to remove.
Make sure Temporary Files, Temporary Internet Files, and Recycle Bin are the only things checked.
Press OK to remove them.

2.) Run a couple of on-line scans.

Trend Micro's online virus scanner
Panda ActiveScan

3.) Please download/install/update/configure and perform a scan with Spybot Search & Destroy and AdAware.

Follow all the instructions in the following tutorials:

Using Ad-aware to remove Spyware, Malware, & Hijackers from Your Computer
Using Spybot - Search & Destroy to remove Spyware , Malware, and Hijackers

You could also run the Ad-aware and Spybot scans within safe mode. Additional instructions on how to do this can be found here: How to start Windows in Safe mode.

If none of the above helped...

You could post a HiJackthis log in our HijackThis Logs and Analysis forum.
Before you do, please read the instructions in the How to submit a Hijackthis Log

Please be patient while a member of the HJT team has a chance to analysis your log.

It may take several attempts until your log is clean.

Good-luck.

:thumbsup:

So you get the "Blue Screen of Death" and cannot get into Windows at all?
Is your only option to reboot your computer? Safe mode and normal mode produce the same symptom and you have to reboot?

If so, you may have to run a Perform a Repair Installation.

However, the error message you are getting indicates that you have Troj/Haxdoor-CN rootkit infection.
This complicates things a little more when attempting the Repair Installation.

Do you have a back-up of your data?

Please answer the questions above. If you can, you may want to wait until we can get some of the others to weigh in with their options.

Take care,
JC

That is correct the only thing I can do is to turn the PC off and back on, "the Blue Screen of Death" is really something. And yes this happens no matter what mode option that I choose on boot up with F8 , I don't have any data that is important, so I don't have a back-up., so I'm open to anything anyone has to say.....

thanx again

Try the Repair Installation that I linked to above. I believe that it is the next logical step.
After it is repaired, you will still have to follow the steps in my first post to check for viruses/spyware.

Let us know how you made out with the Repair Installation

Good-Luck.
JC
