I get the below message when I start my pc.

Windows can not find "login.exe"

What does this mean?

I also get a "increasing virtual windows" message through out the day.

Thanks in advance!

Login.exe belongs to a lot of programs.. most common, probably Netopia's Timbuktu Pro. Plenty of the time, that file name is used for malware.. If you don't have Timbuktu Pro, and think you may have malware problems:

Please go to the Malware Forum and read the stickies located at the top, especially this one.
The guides will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. Then you can post a OTL log in THAT forum. Be patient, the Malware Forum is a very busy place and a two or three day wait is not unusual. Only after a three day wait may you move to The Waiting Room where you will be on the top of the list to be helped. A three day wait is 72 hours.. Make sure it has been over that amount of time, or your Waiting Room topic will be closed.

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

As for the "increasing virtual windows" message, I assume you mean, "Increasing Virtual Memory".. Go here to learn about this message.

Hope this helps,

-Jason :)
