himal, if your quotes are correct, I smell a rat. "can't found windows" is incorrect English. M$ has been accused of lots of things, but incorrect English isn't one I've ever heard of.
If you are indeed seeing that, I suspect a nasty (worm/trojan, virus). Be aware that a virus and a Trojan are similar, but not the same. Many times, an AV detects one it can't clean, other times, it gets missed entirely.
If you need to clean one, Superantispyware (info only. I’m not paid for recommendation) can do the job and you can get it free @:
among other places. They have a Vista compatible version if needed. Dunno about Windows 7 or later.
If it turns out that you need to use it, be sure to update Superantispyware prior to running and disable 'restore' (restart after cleaning) so the nasty doesn't get put back. They just released a new update recently and it changes all the time. Things are in a constant state of flux.
The restore thing is critical. May not be your deal at all, but won't hurt anything to try.

And/Or Run Malwarebytes. I have had good success using it when something gets past your AV program.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
If all else fails, read instructions.
