Every time I turn my computer on, I get this message "Can not find script file "C:\WINDOWS\boot.ini"

I only started getting it a few days ago, after I removed ms32dll.dll.vbs trojan from my computer.

What should I do about this?

Other than that, computer is running fine.

Howdy and welcome to GTG:

The thread you were sent to gives you the possible fixes to try. Did you?

There is no need to post in that thread, just follow the fixes given.

Ok, so I tried both the solutions, and it still comes up when I boot my computer.
Any other ideas would be appreciated.
Cheers guys

Okay.. first of all, make and model of your computer. Second, is your XP cd a full install cd or a Recovery/|Restore cd from Acer, HP, Compaq, etc?

Boot using the cd. Go to the Recovery Console. Once there, type in chkdsk /f and press "enter".

Let it run. When it is finished, go out of the Recovery Console, remove the cd and reboot.
