You have a virus. If you have antivirus software on your computer, start the computer in Safe mode by tapping the F8 key from a cold boot. Run your antivirus software from there. if you don't have any antivirus install , boot into safe mode with networking and download and install one like Avast Free edition. If you're unable to use the internet, download it from a working computer. Save it to a jump drive or cd, and run it in Safe mode.

Do you have any restore disks for the machine? Probably your best bet is to reinstall the os.

Open it & logon tab then untick lsyss and un-necessary start-up items. what antivirus soft do u have? Avast and Ms security essentials are the best free antivirus apllication.

Nice program Kuwese. I didn't know about that one. It might work if that app shows up.

If you don't have a removeable disk then use a usb stick.
