    I'm running Win98SE. During start-up I get the message that the file UVITQXE.EXE cannot be found. I hit OK and the machine boots up and as far as I can tell everything works fine. What does this file do? Do I need it? If so, where do I get it?

    I have some faint recollection that this file may have come up in a virus scan, but I don't know for sure.

    Thanks for your help!

    It might be a good idea to have your computer scanned on line at <A HREF="http://housecall.antivirus.com/pc_housecall/">Trend Micro HouseCall </A>

    If you come out clean, please show us your startups.
    We may well be able to identify the culprit that way:

    Go to Start/run, and type Msinfo32, followed by OK.
    Go to Software Environment/Startup Programs.
    Now click Edit/'Select all', and then 'copy'
    Paste the contents in your post.

    GGod luck,

    Hi,

    Anything with a *.hta extension in startup is highly suspect and up to no good!.

    Go to Start/run, type Msconfig, and uncheck cAg0u Registry (Machine Run) C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\8AA546A0.hta on the Startup tab.

    Reboot.

    Now go to C:\Windows\System, find the file, and delete it.

    Good luck,

    And there's your UVITQXE.EXE as well, in your Win.ini.

    Go to Start/run, type Win.ini.

    You'll see a line run=UVITQXE.EXE

    delete everything after the' =', so that the line reads run= only.

    And uncheck that one in Msconfig/startup as well.

    You'll need to reboot again.

    Sorry about not mentioning everything in my first post.

    Good luck,
