After switching my computer on a "Systems 32" window appears on my desk top. How can I stop this happening? I am using windows XP.

This can happen when there is a bad entry is in one or more of the Registry's startup locations. Please download this from Kelly's Korner XP. If your anti-malware program asks you if you want to run it, allow it to run, because it is safe.

Hi rogersm...

Before running any scripts on the machine, let's check a couple registry settings.

Click Start, then Run, type regedit, and click "Ok".

In Registry Editor, expand (click +) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and click on Run.

List everything displayed in the right pane for me.

Then expand (click +) HKEY_CURRENT_USER, then SOFTWARE, then Microsoft, then Windows, then CurrentVersion, and click on Run.

List everything displayed in the right pane for me.

It appears to me that the problem is malware related.

Please go to the Malware Forum and follow the instructions found there.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself...then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. DO NOT REPLY TO OR BUMP YOUR OWN LOG. If it shows a reply it may be overlooked as one that is being worked on.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
