Hi, I guess skidzy is having his din-dins. If you run CCleaner click here this might clear this corrupt file.

Calling upon an individual forum member is much frowned upon. Have you downloaded a copy of the Forum Rules .. available from the main Helproom page. Not scolding you or anything, just for your information.

clear your temp files with
Crap Cleaner click here

click here

lots about this on Google but cannot find a clear fix.

Try running sfc

Start/run and type sfc /scannow (note the space /)

Understanding sfc click here

What program are you opening to receive this error,or do you get this from startup.

You also could try this:

Start /Run and type MSCONFIG and select startup
Untick one at a time and ok and reboot. Leave your AV and Firewall ticked,also leave any realtime antispyware scanner ticked also.

If this error is a startup program,this may help to identify what is causing this.

Snap !!

I think you will find this is a little more than a corrupt temp file guys,well thats according to google.

Some seem to think its a Worm,some think its Malware/spyware,some think its a corrupt program running from startup.
There are a lot of maybe's.

Lets hope Ccleaner can sort this easily.

Hi, friend, I looked at Google too - hence my fingers-crossed attempt to help :-)

I would scan with:

Superantispyware click here

AVG Antispyware click here

A-squared click here
