Weird Startup Message


Recommended Posts

So I get this message every time I boot my computer:

"Windows cannot find 'C:\Program Files(x86)\Search Extensions\Client.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."

Behind this message is always a blank Command Prompt that disappears when I click the OK on the message's box.


I understand that it is a normal error message but I have no idea what it is referring to. Could it be the driver of a virus missing the rest of its files?


Thanks for any help!

As such, you might wish to get some expert help checking the system for malware remnants or damage.

We can't work on malware diagnostics and removal in this sub-section of the forum.

So, for expert assistance, I suggest that you please follow the advice in this pinned topic: Available Assistance For Possibly Infected Computers.
It explains the options for free, expert help >>AND<< the preliminary steps to expedite the process.
