Hi techyv people, 

I am sharing here an amazing error message, I experience this while I was using our inventory application, all of a sudden an error message appeared, its message was Windows cannot find the file. Would you like some wine instead?

Windows cannot find the file.

Would you like some wine instead?

I pasted above the screen shot of the error, the error sounds strange, I don't believe it is generated from our inventory application, so tried to scan my computer for some virus that might hijack my computer, but none was found, but I still suspected this is a work of a virus,

Please your experience on this message,

Thanks in advance.

There could be various sources regarding this error message. Please be Guided by the following:

  1. Computer freaks: If you are sure that it suddenly appears on the screen while just using your application without opening a file then is could be some work of someone that is playing with you. (Shall we say one of your officemates that knows how do to this trick).
  2. Malware or Viruses: If it constantly appears upon opening or using the application, then it could be a work of some malicious programs or shall we say that the system has been infected by a virus/malware.

When running antivirus seems to be ineffective in this case, it is better to delete the Systems Volume Information and Recycler folders. Although these folders are inaccessible to Windows file system (NTFS), there are some tools that made this possible to reveal like the Servant Salamander or the Total Commander. In most cases, viruses mostly hid themselves in these areas after a success of its infection of the system in order to back up its own file.

Deleting Systems Volume Information means deleting the systems restore point (System Restore) which could be a very useless process when the system is totally overwhelmed by virus infections. The folder Systems Volume Information and Recycler could be found in the drives partition e.g. C:, D: .
