    I had some virus (90 to be more specific) just from pure laziness. So I got rid of them with Panda's online scanner. Now Im getting a msg on startup saying c:\windows\system32\cmd32.exe is missing, however my system is running fine, which has lead me to believe it was a the main file for the virus which was loaded on startup, and now has been deleted. Does anyone know if there is actually a cmd32.exe file in XP Pro?

    cmd32.exe is not a real system file, it was created by the virus

    read this to learn more and to resolve the problem, it will require some registry editing

    can I assume you are a regular user of kazaa? You've got to be careful when using any p2p software and scan EVERYTHING you download for viruses BEFORE you use it
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
