When my computer starts up, two seperate windows appear and say the following:

1. Cannot find C:\WINDOWS\system32\1.tmp

2. Something about reinstalling "ipwins.dll"

Anything would be helpful. Have tried a number of progarms, currently have zonealarm installed.

1.TMP could literally be anything as there's thousands of files using this filename.

IPWINS.DLL however is definitely a nasty:

Give a scan and see if it removes the problem.

Since AVG will not catch all I also suggest :

2nd step
Install Super Antispyware. Run it in safe mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

Run the online scan for Bit Defender in normal mode. Allow it to quarantine whatever it finds.

If the 1.tmp file is not detected and/or deleted by either SuperAntiSpyware and/or Bitdefender, please do the following :

Please upload the file at Jotti or Virustotal and post back the result
