    Hi guys.

    This evening I went onto my Windows Vista laptop just to browse the internet when I noticed this message pop up straight after I had booted up:

    [​IMG]


    I saw that it had been deleted and I have no idea why. Now, I'm not an expert at computers but I knew this wasn't good, so I clicked 'restore' and I never saw it again. However I restarted and noticed it again, but I didn't click 'restore' this time, and as I went to download a file it wouldn't download (something along the lines of: .exe couldn't be downloaded... please contact administrator)

    I don't think it can be serious because as soon as I 'restore' it everything's back to normal, but it is really annoying that after every statup this pops up. Please can you help me rectify this and allow me to have a stressless time whilst browing on my laptop.

    Thanks in advance.

    Windows32 might be malware related. You might want to post your thread in the Malware Removal section.
