Mine has suddenly started doing this too. A required Microsoft Windows system directory, the Windows System32 directory is often located in either C:\Windows\System32 or C:\Winnt\system32. Often many Microsoft Windows error messages will contain the system32 directory because many of the system files Windows uses to run are stored in this directory. By itself the System32 directory will not cause any errors unless it is missing of course. If you are getting an error with a file in the System32 directory search for that file. No error message, it just pops up and has to be 'closed'

In my case Autoexec.nt was missing from the C:\WINNT\System32 directory. Looking in the C:\WINNT\Repair directory I found that Windows had automatically made a backup copy of Autoexec.nt, so I just copied this into C:\WINNT\System32 and the problem was fixed.

So don't worry if you can't find the file afterwards anymore - HijackThis already deleted it. But it's always a good idea to doublecheck.Please make sure you don't delete "similar looking" files as they may be legitimate.In case when you're in doubt or it didn't solve your problem, please start a NEW thread in the HijackThisforum with your HijackThislog.FYI... Ad-Aware removes this pest as well. So make sure you have the latest updates.
