    Hi i deleted a malicious VBS file from my system32 folder. But now the Windows Script Host displays a msg that it cannot find that file at startup. How can i stop the msg from displaying.

    I expect that there is a reference to the script in the registry or startup folder of the start menu. I don't know for sure tho'.

    Check your registry:

    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry key  
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run registry key
    and check your startup folder:

    Code:
     C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
