Hi to all,

Sorry for posting here. But I feel it's better since it's like I'm talking to a whole big familly here. xD

I'm getting this error everytime I log in to msn. (I had to use photoshop to create this screenshot. >.<)
Untitled_2.jpg
Should I click 'Yes' or 'No'?

Also, I'm loosing programs lately. I don't see "Paint" in my 'Start' menu, and I don't see "Windows Media Player" in my start menu as well. When I go to where my WMP is installed at, I don't see the execution file.

So my question is, when that msn error comes up. What do I press? And why am I loosing my programs?

Regards,
Jay

perhaps try analyzing your own hjt log to rule out malware?

First I would recommend that you clean out your temp files with ATF cleaner and then run Ewido and/or an online virus scan. After all of this reboot like normal and post a HijackThis here along with the results from the Ewido and/or online virus scan results.

Edit: When I usually get those error messages I just click Yes.

Moving to the OS forum. Geek U is not for your computer problems.

If this turns out to be a malware problem, someone will close this and you can start a thread there. Until then, well go under the assumption that this is not malware related.

start > control panel > internet options > advanced
scroll down and disable script debugging.

That will stop the message

You might also consider downloading the Microsoft scripting engine 5.6

Please amplify on Paint and WMP....do you mean in the parent start menu, as in, when you press START, they are on the left side of the two column start menu?

This is a dynamic menu (bottom at least) and will place shortcuts there by use.

If you want them there permanent, find the file actual start menu link, right cick, and choose PIN TO START MENU

START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESORIES > PAINT
START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER

Well regarding the Windows Media Player problem, here's a screenshot of what I have in my WMP folder in my program files.

ss2.jpg

When I double click on the file named,"wmlaunch", the computer loads for awhile then it stops. Why is this so? The execution file sort of disappear from my quick launch folder. The same goes for the program named "Paint". It was pinned on the start menu, but it was gone when the windows media player went missing.

When I double click on a WMA song type, WMP will come out. So I think that the execution file is still in my computer. But the thing is I can't find the file in the program files itself. This also applies to the "Paint".

Please help.

Regards,
Jay
