Question about Computers & Internet
Every time when we restart or booting my pc a window is open after login showing a message
"windows cannot find 'gphone.exe' . make sure you typed the name correctly, and try again.to search for a file,click the start button and then click search. ".
after closing this window whole the window is close for some time.
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:

Tips for a great answer:
Boot off the Windows disk and select the "Repair your computer" option from the lower left-hand corner.
Follow through until you get to the option to open the Command Prompt, which you'll want to select.
First you'll want to type in the following command to backup the original sticky keys file:
copy c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe c:\
Then you'll copy the command prompt executable (cmd.exe) over top of the sticky keys executable:
copy c:\windows\system32\cmd.exe c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe
Resetting the Password
Once you get to the login screen, hit the Shift key 5 times, and you'll see an administrator mode command prompt.
Now to reset the password-just type the following command, replacing the username and password with the combination you want:
net user geek MyNewPassword
That's all there is to it. Now you can login.
Of course, you'll probably want to put the original sethc.exe file back, which you can do by rebooting into the installation CD, opening the command prompt, and copying the c:\sethc.exe file back to c:\windows\system32\sethc.exe.
