This is a virus. If it doesn't find it then it's a good thing.

Try browsing to "C:\Users\Home\AppData\Local" and delete the "Temp" directory to make sure it's all gone.

To fix the error message at startup:

  1. Start menu
  2. Click "Run" or type directly in the search box (Windows Vista/7)
  3. "msconfig"
  4. Go to the "Startup" tab
  5. Find the entry matching the file and uncheck it

Finally, run Malware Bytes to clean up whatever may be left of the virus.

  • The file is already gone so deleting the Temp directory will just delete the Temp directory. Running MalwareBytes is pretty much the only solution here unless they want to located the infected registry key by hand. – Ramhound Nov 22 '12 at 23:48

Download AutoRuns ("Run as Administrator"). This applications will list everything that basically starts when your computer boots. Search for that file with that path and delete it with AutoRuns. Be careful with it. If you still have problems with it, download a LinuxLiveCD and boot into linux and mount the hdd. You can delete the file from there sense no windows based application with run from linux on that hdd. Permissions will not be a problem either.
