    Is your Antivirus generating this message, or something else ?
    If not the AV, have you done a scan ?

    Since it points to a exe in the TEMP folder, you might
    1 - Create a Restore Point.
    2 - Delete the .exe file, or the TEMP folder (Disk Cleanup)
  2. This tends to come up when anti-virus software removes a virus file but not the part that used to start it.

    Check in Start > Programs > Startup see if anything in there calls that file.

    Also run regedit, and you can do a search there for that string, and delete the reference. Just make sure you only delete the entry for that exact path.

    Just another "hit n run" , I assume !
