I have a friend who is having a problem when he logs in. Everytime he trys to log in he gets a message that says "Windows could not find 'copy'" and the message will not go away. In order for him to get the message off the screen he has to end the task. We have tried removie things from his startup and that does not seam to be working.

Now I am asking for help with this problem.

Thank in advance for your help.

Windows cannot find 'copy'. Make sure that you typed the file name
correctly. If you are unsure click the Start tab and the click search.

This is the exact message

That message means you're infected with Adware.Winshow.

Update your virus program and do a full virus scan.

To delete entries that were placed in the registry:

Open Regedit and do a find for "winshow" and delete all keys found. (Press F3 - Find Next).

Then do the same for "winlink".

Close Regedit.

Now do a search for files on C: for "winshow" and "winlink", and delete any found.

Reboot.

After thought:

Not too sure, but because it's a spyware, Spybot should get rid of it.
