I just noticed on my desktop some icons that are a puzzle to me. I believe they might have shown up after I got this bootup message:

"One of the files containing the system's registry data had to be recovered by use of a log or alternate copy. The recovery was successful."

First of all, can anyone explain to me (as if I were a child please) what the message basically means, and why these icons are on my desktop if they are in fact related to the message?

The icons are "scrcfg" and "cmdline."

Thanks in advance.

Right click on the icons and go to properties. If they are a shortcut press find target and see where it takes you.

If you don't know where this came from perhaps you should visit the Security Thread and do a hijackthis log for review.

But for sure you are a programmer or wantabe ???

The programs they may have installed on your computer. Directories, files, folders...etc.

I wouldn't understand what I was reading IF I had bothered to take the time. :p I'm definitely not into all that technical stuff. That's why I rely on you guys.

So now...what is this "highjack this" log you're talking about??? I'd be glad to do it if it would help me figure out what these icons are.

No, I wasn't having any problems that I can remember.

I do have a firewall, and it's enabled. When you mentioned it I checked right away in internet connections. And I run AVG and Adaware regularly.

Hey, I found out where those icons came from. I went ahead and deleted them. They came back the minute I loaded my Scrabble game. I got a message that the game had to determine the speed of my computer (or something to that effect), which is the same message I got the very first time I loaded Scrabble. The whole time those icons were on my desktop, I never got the message. So...I guess they're related to the game.

Glad you found your answer! You may want to contact the games creator to see if this is a known problem and if so is there a fix for it.

Will consider this problem resolved.
