    hii I did that but I still get the message. Should I change General settings in msconfig. For my system it showed Selective Startup, so I changed it to Normal Startup and restarted my system and yet it didn't solve my problem, I still get that message after logging in.

My program file regsvr.exe delete.How restore this


Dear Amartya,

Here is a solution for your problem.




What the regsvr.exe virus does?
• This worm creates folders and a registry entry to enable its automatic execution at every system startup.
• This worm also creates a scheduled task to enable its automatic execution at a specified date and/or time.
• It also creates Autorun.inf file for its auto execution.
Solution to fix the problem:
1. If the task manager and registry editor is disabled then we need to enable them first. Read this post.
2. Delete the Autorun.inf file created by the virus. Read this post to know how to do that.
3. Now type msconfig in the Run dialog and click on startup tab.
4. Look for regsvr and uncheck any options, click OK.
5. Now traverse to control panel -> scheduled tasks, and delete the At1 task that might be listed there.
6. Type regedit in the Run dialog to open the registry editor.
7. Click on Edit -> Find and search for regsvr.exe
8. Just delete all the occurrences of regsvr.exe virus (do not confuse it with regsvr32.exe which is not a virus).
9. Navigate to entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and modify the entry Shell = "Explorer.exe regsvr.exe" to delete the regsvr.exe from it.


I think it helps.Let me know

Cannot find gphone.exe


gphone.exe is a virus that affect google talk or yahoo messenger, to remove it you can download a copy of Eset antivirus.

You could have the same error after the antivirus removal but now the system is clear and you have to delete gphone.exe from your startup files list: start -> run -> msconfig -> go to startup and uncheck gphone. This should help you.

Regsvr.exe not found please help me


This is your problem i think: Windows cannot find 'regsvr.exe'.Make sure you typed the name correctly,and then try again.To search for file,click the start button,and then click search.
Most likely you had a virus that installed a Regsvr.exe reference into your Windows registry. If it shows as "missing" at start-up it's because your anti-virus software removed the program but not the reference. You need a registry cleaner tool like CCleaner. It's a free tool that can be used to clean both your registry and delete junk files from your hard drive.

I found a few things you can do: 1. http://tandt-u.blogspot.com/2008/11/remove-regsvrexe-virus.html
2. Just Google CCleaner - download and run it.

3. I found a site. just follow thes steps: http://amiworks.co.in/talk/how-to-remove-new-folderexe-or-regsvrexr-or-autoruninf-virus/
4. I found (maybe) the soultion.you got the error at startup say that regsvr.exe not found.
Plz find the process how to remove this error
Goto-> RUN-> Regedit->HKEY_LOCAL_MEACHINE->SOFTWARE->MICROSOFT->WINDOWS NT->CURRENT VERSION->WINLOGON->in the reght side panel u can see the key SHELL -> in that key u if u see the two names (Explorer.EXE Regsver.exe) plz delete only the regsver.exe(plz do not remove the explorer.exe) Just Press OK

PLZ BE CARE FUL WHEN UR DOING THIS UR PLAYING WITH SYSTEM FILES PLZ DO NOT REMOVE ANY OTHER KEYS
IF ANY SYSTEM CRASHES I AM NOT RESPOSIBLE
PLZ CREATE A SYSTEM RESTORE POINT BEFORE DOING THIS
if you find it difficult, i found a site with the same steps but with screenshots: I found the soultion for the same. http://techrena.blogspot.com/2009/03/remove-windows-cannot-find-regsvrexe.html
I hope it works for you. And please rate

When I open computer a message displayed cannot find regsvr.exe


Hi there.
You have a virus on the PC!!

What the regsvr.exe virus does?
• This worm creates folders and a registry entry to enable its automatic execution at every system startup.
• This worm also creates a scheduled task to enable its automatic execution at a specified date and/or time.
• It also creates Autorun.inf file for its auto execution.
Solution to fix the problem:
1. If the task manager and registry editor is disabled then we need to enable them first. Read this post.
2. Delete the Autorun.inf file created by the virus. First go to cmd (start menu, run or search, type “attrib X:Autorun.inf –s –r –h” without quotes where X is your drive name which is having the problem. Now the file is visible and ready to delete. After deleting the file, close the explorer and open it again
3. Now type msconfig in the Run dialog and click on startup tab.
4. Look for regsvr and uncheck any options, click OK.
5. Now traverse to control panel -> scheduled tasks, and delete the At1 task that might be listed there.
6. Type regedit in the Run dialog to open the registry editor.
7. Click on Edit -> Find and search for regsvr.exe
8. Just delete all the occurrences of regsvr.exe virus (do not confuse it with regsvr32.exe which is not a virus).
9. Navigate to entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindows NTCurrentVersionWinlogon and modify the entry Shell = “Explorer.exe regsvr.exe” to delete the regsvr.exe from it.
shell_regsvr.jpg10. Now to actually delete the virus from the system go to system32 folder and delete the regsvr.exe virus file from there (you will need to uncheck the option of “Hide Protected System Files and Folders” in Folder Options to view the virus file).
Reboot the system for changes to take place.
If this is too much for you to understand please post back for an alternative.

Good luck

Windows cannot find 'gphone.exe'


Gphone.exe is worm which spreads via instant messengers. It usually affects Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk applications. Gphone.exe send a message and invites victims to visit a website. If clicked upon, the link actually delivers a copy of Gphone.exe infection.

Most likely you have a security program that detected and removed the threat but windows is still trying to load the file on startup, thankfully it isnt able to because the threat is gone so windows is displaying that error message to let you know it was not able to load the file.

Go to Start > Run> type "msconfig" and press enter. click the startup tab and uncheck the box that says "gphone.exe". (it may have a long file or folder path in front like c:windowssystem32).

Go to this website if you need further removal instructions:

Common Language Runtime and Windows cannot find 'regsvr.exe'


This is malware! Never click on an executable file that you do not know as you activate a worm or virus by doing so. A quick google search of the file name is prudent if you do not know what that file is. Now you should download the Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool from Microsoft here: http://www.microsoft.com/security/malwareremove/default.mspx Let me know if you need further help. Steve

Whenever I start my system I first get an alert before login of profile as "crmgoldbpe.exe - Common Language Runtime Debugging Services Application has generated an exception that could not be handled....


click start -> run. Type msconfig hit enter. Goto the startup tab and look for anything containing crmgoldbpe.exe and uncheck the box next to it. Restart your computer. The error should be gone. This is part of a spyware program so you should also run an anti-spyware program such as spybot search and destroy from www.safer-networking.org.
