The window E:\WINDOWS\system32\command.com pops up momentary every time I log on particularly after doing a Spybot search.

After doing a search for System 32 the following files come up:

System 32 E:\WINDOWS file folder 16/9/2007
" " Windows file folder 0 KB 28/8/2000
" " appl.zip/wks 2000 file folder 0 KB 22/7/2000

Have XP Windows, Avast antivirus, Spybot search and Destroy & CCleaner.

I used the Norton Remomal Tool to get rid of Norton/Symantec.

Please, how do I rectify the System 32 error? Not sure if this is spyware related.

Advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Welcome to Geeks to Go!

I am not quite sure what your issues are? When you log on an error box pops up? What exactly does the error say?

Hi again.
Sorry, but I don't have a WinXP installation disc.

The error message was similar as you posted. After doing a TrendMicro Housecall 6.5 scan (was advised to do this scan after receiving security threats through EBay). The problem I have, seemed to start directly after doing this scan. The original message read:-

16 bit MS.DOS Subsystem
E:\WINDOWS\system32\command.com
E:\PROGRAM\symantec\S32EVNTI.DLL.
An installable Virtual Device Driver failed DLL initialization. Choose 'close' to terminate the application. Options 'Close' or 'Ignore'.

Currently only getting E:\WINDOWS\system32\command.com.

Can this be rectified without the installation disc & is this problem serious?

Thanks again.

Is the error message the only goofyness? If so, it does not really apply. Refers to 16 bit application DOS command line. Doubt you'll ever use it. Real trouble is that your machine is still hosting the Symantec virus. (Norton is the problem.) Do a thorough search of your system for any remaining references to Norton/Symantec and delete them.
