Every time I start my HP vista laptop I get three consecutive Desktop error messages namely:
Desktop
could not load or run 'C:\Users\User\Local specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry.

-could not load...'settings\Application'.....

-could not load...'Data\asdlfj3\Services.exe..
I am tired of hitting OK three times.
I couldn't locate the refernce to it in the registry. I am redirected to this forum form annoyances.org. Anyhelp plsease. 10Q in advance. Abrham

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE.

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post an OTListIt log in THAT forum.

To troubleshoot start-up problems using Windows Vista tools, click "Start," right-click "Computer" and select "Properties." Select the "Windows Experience Index" link. Click "Advanced Tools." Browse the event log and the Reliability and Performance Monitor to see what warnings and errors your computer has experienced recently and to monitor your system resources. You can also use the System Configuration utility to enter Safe mode. Click "Start" and type "msconfig" in the search bar. Click the link that appears under "Programs" in the Start menu. Click the "Boot" tab. Check the box beside "Safe Boot." Select "Minimal" to load only essential drivers and programs at start-up. Select "Alternate Shell" to start Windows Vista with a command prompt window. Select "Active Directory Repair" to start Windows with the Active Directory and critical system services. Select "Network" to start in Safe mode with network support. When Safe mode starts, click "Start," "Help and Support" and then "Troubleshooting Tools."
