An odd Windows occurence.

  diogenes 20:32 25 May 2004

I am running Windows ME. A rather strange problem has appeared today. After start up an error message has appeared:

"Explorer has caused an error in 8272807082.TMP".

Clicking the close button closes Windows. Ignore it and everything seems to carry on as usual except that you have to move the error window to somewhere it cannot be seen. I have done a virus scan which has revealed nothing.

Any ideas as to what is going on? How can it be fixed?

Thanks everyone.

Check for spyware ad-aware click here and Spybot click here

Update them before scanning.

Acting on your advice I ran Adaware. It found 31 items, including threee that were described as
Malware the balance were Dataminers. I have deleted them all and the problem appears to have gone. Thank You.
