Strange Box on Startup to click OK to disappear it

  Happy1 13:19 08 Jan 2005

Hi All,

A rellie of mine has had a problem for about a month.

When booted up. In the centre of Desktop is a Grey Box with a Blue Top. Inside it says MSCcriptControl:: Unknown error It has an OK button which when he clicks on the boc disappears and then all seems ok.

Is this anything to worry about or is it to do with his computer please? He is Running Windows 98 with AVG AV.

Many thanks,

A quick Google suggests that MSScriptControl errors can be associated with spyware.

Try running Ad-aware click here

Tell him to download and update spybot click here and adaware click here and run them both, it sounds like it could be spyware.
