I just cleaned some nasty viruses off my machine, but every time I boot up I get an error message telling me that it cannot find C:\windows\system32\ddayy.exe, and that I should remove references to it in the registry. I ran the registry search tool looking for ddayy.exe and got the following:

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
"load"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\ddayy.exe"

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1397865392-4000231507-2547351323-1006\Software\Microsoft\Windows\ShellNoRoam\MUICache]
"C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\ddayy.exe"="ddayy"

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-1397865392-4000231507-2547351323-1006\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
"load"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\ddayy.exe"

[HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-18\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows]
"load"="C:\\WINDOWS\\system32\\ddayy.exe"

How do I keep the computer from posting these messages every time I boot up? What is ddayy.exe anyway? Thank you for any help you can offer.

Hi D. Scott and welcome to TSF !

Please follow the "HJT - 5 steps against malware" link in my sig. Read the instructions there carefully and post your final logs in a new thread in the HijackThis section. Our security analysts will review them and tell you what to do to get rid of these messages for good. Be patient as the HijackThis section is very busy and it may take several days before you get an answer.
