every time i start my computer i get the following message. A new auto start up program has been detected by win patrol. There is no disciption and the company name is not included in this program. It is located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\arplexe. should i agree to this, and can anyone tell me what it is?

arpl.exe is a trojan according to this click here and they are usually reliable. You need to run your antivirus program to see if it will get rid of it.
