Does anybody know how to remove or prevent a windows message box like 'Windows couldn't find the file "C:\windows\kasengjangansocial.exe" blah..blah blah..., during start-up.
Thanks

Try using AutoRuns.

This utility, which has the most comprehensive knowledge of auto-starting locations of any startup monitor, shows you what programs are configured to run during system bootup or login, and shows you the entries in the order Windows processes them. These programs include ones in your startup folder, Run, RunOnce, and other Registry keys. You can configure Autoruns to show other locations, including Explorer shell extensions, toolbars, browser helper objects, Winlogon notifications, auto-start services, and much more. Autoruns goes way beyond the MSConfig utility bundled with Windows Me and XP.


The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

Normally this kind of irritating pop-up is because a virus removal was incomplete. So, the first step is to conduct several different scans to ensure the virus(s) are really gone.

Here's a couple of free, online scans:

Let us know the results and we can move on from there.

1 trojan horse virus, 7 infected http cookies and 2 vulnerablilities detected.However, I could not apply the appropriate action to these 2 vulnerabilities as there were no options to choose from other than the links to its informations.
I closed the IE and restarted the pc but no difference made.This irritating pop up still appears during start up.
and when I rght click on the task bar , task manager is disabled and there is no way to access it anymore when I need it.

As I stated earlier, the popup is likely the result of an incomplete virus removal. I'll tell you how to fix the popup - but it may not work if the system isn't clean.

Also, in general the vulnerabilities refer to Windows Updates (or other vulnerable programs) - I'd suggest a visit to the Windows Update site and get the updates there to fix the vulnerabilities.

To stop the popup, use this free program ( http://www.microsoft.com/technet/sysintern...s/Autoruns.mspx ) to locate the entry(ies) with the kasengjangansocial.exe in it. Then disable it and the popup should stop (but may restart if the system isn't clean).

A couple of tips for healthier surfing:
A) If it pops up and you don't want it - close your browser by pressing Alt + F4 (or by right clicking on it in the task bar and selecting "Close")
1) Don't ever click on anything that you didn't ask for - and then be durned sure what you're asking for.
2) Don't ever open an email without scanning it first - I don't care if it's from the Pope, scan it first!
3) If something wants to be installed on your system - tell it no. Only install stuff that you've downloaded and scanned.
4) If you're downloading something, scan it before you open it - ALWAYS!!!
5) Have good a good antivirus (only 1), antispyware, and a firewall (only 1) running at all times.

It seems that you get infected very quickly, so I'd wonder what's causing this. It may be to your benefit to format your hard drive and start over with a fresh installation of Windows.

Otherwise, just keep running multiple anti-virus scans until the problem behavior disappears.
