Annoying error message during startup

Beginning last week I get a message "Cannot find file in C\Program\...."
during the boot just after the Welcome splash screen. I can click OK, then
everything seems to work OK. Because there is no folder "C:\Program\", I
suspect a virus or some outside cause.

Has anyone heard of this as something that could be dealt with?

Thanks

Try C:\Program Files

You have something that wants to start at boot that has been removed or is
screwed up.

Hi Ramesh,

Did the tsunamis cause you any problems?

I hope not.

I wondered about you when I first heard the news.

Hi Wes,

Thanks! I'm fine here as I live in sub-urb Chennai, 15-20 Kms (road-route) away from the Tsunami hit Marina Beach.
