    So I got this problem and its more of a piss off than anything. Everytime I open up "my Documents" in windows explorer, I get an error and the program has to close, yadda yadda yadda.......

    I tracked the root of the problem to a file in the "temp" folder in local settings.

    Seen here:

    Every time I delete it, it comes back, I'm not used to the whole virus thing because I never get them. How the fuck do I get it to stop these error reports?

    And every time I delete it, the name is changed when it comes back. I'm gonna lose it. :x

    hey try deleteing the files in safe mode (to get there press f8 while the system is booting, and choose safe mode w/ networking) once you are in safe mode also go to http://housecall.antivirus.com and scan your PC.
    it wont hurt to get ad-aware from www.lavasoft.de and run that as well as CWSshredder from www.spywareinfo.org or merjin.org (i think those are the URLs, if not google;))

    hope that helps

    I'd re-boot to a command prompt, then delete the file from there. Chances are the file will not delete with Windows running because the file is in use.

    If none of the above works try a program called "hijack this" on the inet. Good for getting rid of crap that hijacks you Os and browser. That or CWshredder

    OK. Ran AdAware 6.0, CWS Shredder and a few other things. That revealed a few Browser hijacker spyware shit.

    I still get errors when I open my documents, and venture into my local settings. There is still WERxx.tmp.dir00 files and folders showing up on my temp folder under local settings seen here:

    I turned off System Restore and ran AdAware, the reason I didn't run my Symantec anti-virus client is because I can't. I tried, but I keep getting a fucking error message there too. I did an online update for Symantec and it still comes up seen here:

    This is pissing me off, This POS is FUBARED, and it is probably just a that fucking folder in the temp files that I can't get rid of! :x

    Any more ideas? :happysad:

    heres the results of the Hijack This scan:

    I have no idea which processes to delete, I'm assuming the ones from the Google Toolbar are harmless, but I don't know about the rest.

    run msconfig and check what runs on start up, looks like there is a program trying to install each time you boot but is missing the install files causing these troubles.

    Not 100% sure but it's worth a shot.
