Attachment has screenshots of the error messages. Would really appreciate any help to get rid of these...

EDIT: you can't send attachments so I'll just write it out.

Cannot find the file 'grviewex.exe' (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

Could not load or run 'grviewex.exe' specified in the WIN.INI file. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the WIN.INI file.

Cheers :thumbsup:

This is what I found.

Win32.Gema.F is a trojan that downloads and executes arbitrary files. It has been distributed as a 14,336-byte, PECompact compressed, Win32 executable.
Each time Gema.F is executed, it changes its filename and associated registry entries.

It copies itself to the %System% directory using several names: grviewex.exe Being one of them.

Complete info here.


What security programs (if any) do you have installed?

After you have your screenshot you need to "host" the picture somewhere. I use and recommend Photo Bucket Free and easy to use.
Sign up, log-in, click on the "browse" button.
Find your screenshot and then click "submit".
Your picture will upload and you will see it right there.
There will be 3 links under your picture.
Use "URL" to post a link to the picture.
use "IMG" to have it show in post. Which is fine if it is not a large image.
Then copy and paste the link to your post.

~If you ever delete the image from your photo hosting site. It will no longer show in your post.

Make sure your anti-virus definitions are current, then boot into Safe Mode (tap f8 repeated whilst booting), temporarily disable system restore if you have it turned on (you will loose all restore points). Run a full scan; your antivirus should find this and remove it.
If not, please reply.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
