The error occurs because the virus has gone but Windows is still trying to start it.

Start Meu, Run..., type

MSCONFIG and hit enter

Startup tab, scroll down until you find the NAIL entry, untick it, click OK and reboot.

Also running the two files in the ZIP file given in the link SANTOS7 shoudl also help clean things up.

There is something in there that is throwing up the error. Only way to find it is remove a tick at a time, if it does not stop it retick the down to next item. When you find it make a Exact note of the text etc
