Windows cannot find... start-up annoyance

Specs: Windows XP, idk and idk
A family member recently caught a fairly minor virus, but it did almost take over the computer. I'm somewhat experienced with computers and was able to remove the virus, with the help of MalwareBytes and Super Anti-Spyware, but now whenever i restart the computer i get two messages:

1. "Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\msauemvb.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start button and then click Search." with an OK button.

And after I click OK...

2."Could not load or run 'C:\WINDOWS\system32\msauemvb.exe' specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry." With another OK button.

After I hit the second OK button, it disappears, yet the computer still seems to runs as good as ever, any ideas?

i don't need no stinking 8 key
