click here and click on XP_Fix.EXE

or

MS-DOS 16-bit Windows-based program Error message when you install or start Xp,
Do the following. Rename the existing file autoexec.nt to autoexec.old (make sure you have not got your system files hidden). Inside the windows folder there should be one called "repair". Within this folder there should be a copy of autoexec.nt. Make a copy of the file and place in the orignal location

Download Ewido Security Suite click here

* Install ewido security suite

* Launch ewido, there should be an icon on your desktop double-click it.

* The program will now go to the main screen

You will need to update ewido to the latest definition files.


* On the left hand side of the main screen click update

* Then click on Start Update

The update will start and a progress bar will show the updates being installed.

If you are having problems with the updater, you can use this link to manually update Ewido click here

Once the updates are installed do the following:


* Click on scanner

* Click on Complete System Scan and the scan will begin.

* NOTE: During some scans with ewido it is finding cases of false positives.

* You will need to step through the process of cleaning files one-by-one.

* If ewido detects a file you KNOW to be legitimate, select 'none' as the action.

* DO NOT select 'Perform action on all infections'

* If you are unsure of any entry found select 'none' and post the name here (you can save a log at the end of the scan - items not 'fixed' will be at the top of the list).

This will keep you occupied for some time.

Well, you don't have a virus apparently.


However, a search on Google indicates that your error message is linked to malware of some sort. Try running HJT click here and posting a log on this specialised forum click here
