Hi All,

I'm not sure if this is the right forum to be posting this topic in or not, so if it isn't I would appreciate it if one of you Moderator types would move it to the right forum.

For the past several weeks I have been getting a notice that Windows can't open this program because it needs to know which program created it, for three different programs, that I can only guess are supposed to start every time that my machine boots up.

I'm not sure if they are Malware related or are because I fiddled with something that I wasn't supposed to be messing around with.

I'll only list one as all three of the messages are the same, just for different things.

One is for: Windows Desktop Search.lnk.disabled . I have followed both of the links provided in the error message to see if I could find our what was causing the problem, but haven't been able to find any information because the ".disabled" thing isn't a valid file extension.

I currently have a topic, posted in the Malware forum, on another matter, and won't be making any changes to my system unless this problem is simply due to me ticking a wrong box somewhere.

But I have no idea as to where to look to see if it was me that messed up one of my settings, or if it is due to, or connected to, the Malware problems that I am currently having.

Any information will be appreciated.

What until you have worked out your malware issue first before pursuing other issues on your computer.

Hi cryptodan, Thanks for your reply.

I was just wanting to take the opportunity to do some reading on things that I want to catch up on, but wasn't going to make any changes until I got a repky to my Malware topic.

Thanks again.
