For some reason a warning comes up when I start my computer now "Cannot find:///c:/windows/dlm.html: make sure pather or internet address is correct". After this apprears then internet windows keep opening up on my computer, up to as much as 12 windows are open at once and the same warning keeps poping up also. I've run Norton Anti Virus professional and the program did not find any viruses. Not sure what else to do. Please Help.

THIS IS MY LOG

This is my new log after I have Run "Norton Anti-Virus Pro","Spybot","Ad-ware", and "CWShredder". I still get an error message poping up that says "cannot find:///c:/windows/dlm.html: make sure path or internet address is correct".

Does this error suggest a virus or is it possible that I deleted something from my own files, truth is that I'm pretty sure I didn't delete anything important when this error message started poping up. I'm still getting internet browsers poping up contantly with the error message.
