PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version:XP HOME
Problem Application Name & Version:WORM_KWBOT.C
Problem Hardware Make & Model:Sony Vaio GR370
Error Messages:C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd32.exe



In an attempt to clear my desktop of the constant reminder that I had taken on a virus through Kazaa.....my search led me here.  The info is great.  Everything I read here, I attempted....and all seemed to go as suggested it would.  I performed a regedit and cleared cmd32.  I even found the file WORM_KWBOT.C and sent it packing.  I deleted everything having to do with Kazaa.  I ran PC-Cillin through my system until it cleared all of the infected files (200+) of them.  I deleted them all.  Yet still, when I log on I get the same  message that Windows cannot find 'C:\WINDOWS\System32\cmd32.exe'.  No trace of cmd32.exe in regedit and no trace of a virus with PC-Cillin.  Help?

Hi,

Run MSCONFIG and check the Startup tab to see if an item is trying to load CMD32.exe at startup.

Thank you for responding.  This site is, by far, the most helpful I have had the privelege of coming across!  I suppose I missed it initially in the replies to Stuart101's file but after a thorough re-read I saw a response to "Keisha":

To fix second key:
1. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon in the left pane.
2. In the right pane, double click "Shell"
3. The entry should be "Explorer.exe"

I did this and "POOF"....my heartache was gone.  Thanks again!
