That error is quite correct. Windows 7 is NOT 16bit anyway.
I believe that 32bit Windows 7 will allow you to run 16 bit applications, but 64bit Windows will not.

Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Bleeping Computer" button to download and save AdwCleaner.exe to your desktop.

Close all open windows first, then double-click AdwCleaner.exe to load its main window.

Click the "Scan" button, then allow the scanning process to finish.

Click the "Logfile" button.

When the log appears, save it.

Return here to your thread, then copy-and-paste the ENTIRE log here.

I Doubt whether that will help Frank, but we will see. I suspect it is too old for cleaners to know about.

It's worth a try.

That's a suspicious-looking file path.

Thanks alot for the replies.....

I tried AdwCleaner.exe it removed lots of folders from my laptop. But message I am still getting.
"There is 16 bit application which is not supported".
I don't know where it sits in registry or some where else to remove it.

Well it has told you where the executable is!
You will need to do a search of the registry for (I would suggest) "ismail" and browse around there for the entry.
I would also look for other occurrences of it on your disk.

If m.ismail is your user name on the computer head to C:\users\m.ismail
and open the contents.
In the right pane if you have any files that are not folders, they do not belong there.

Go here, then click the large blue "Download Now @ Author's Site" button to download and save TFC.exe (Temp File Cleaner by OldTimer) to your desktop.

After it's downloaded and saved, close all open windows.

Double-click it to load its main window.

Click the "Start" button.

If there are a large number of temp files or if there are multiple user accounts, the temp file deletion process may appear to freeze and may take a few minutes, so don't interfere with or abort it.

After it's finished, restart the computer.
