Hey guys,

This is my first post and although I can find my way around my computer I'm not all that great with computer lingo so please, if you can help me, please use real easy step by step instructions. Thanks.

Right, I had a virus have got rid of it and now when windows first logs into my account I get a warning saying.. Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\qrmoqyf\lsass.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again.

I press okay and then then warning changes to.. Could not load or run'C:\WINDOWS\system32\qrmoqyf\lsass.exe' specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry

I click okay and it dissapears to appear next time i log in.

Is this something to worry about and if so how do I go about fixing it?

Please help me someone.... please???

We now need to make certain that this issue is not malware because if we troubleshoot otherwize we may be wasting our time.

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
