Every time i start windows the following messege shows up:

Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\System32\System32.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search.

It has been happening for a couple of months now. Can anyone please help me?

If you are able to boot into windows, you can run the system file checker, that will check the state of the system files and wil replace if needed

Start -> Run-> type "SFC /SCANNOW" -> ok
