When Windows starts up the first thing I see is "Windows cannot fine 'C:\windows\system32\system32.exe' make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again..."

I think it got chewed up by a virus a year or so ago. I'm tired of seeing that message on my parents computer and am petty sure the computer needs that file or something. What can I do?

Hi There :thumbsup:

I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review. I bet you are wondering what HijackThis is. Well it's a program that is simply able to show others what's going on inside your computer, in terms of infection etc..

I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please wait for a few days and one of our experts will get onto fixing your computer for you.

Please be aware that this new year we have been swamped so it may take a week for a reply.

David

ad-aware took care of it somehow...I think. The computer doesn't do it anymore when it starts.
