Not valid Win32 application

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Dear all, For scanning I am using Spawer Doctor and for removing the program Your Uninstaller.

This time I run first Your Uninstaller and after that Spawer Doctor. When all done, I have restarted the computer. In recycle bin I have found some files that were removed, and I clicked to empty it.

After that when I wanted to click on partition C: I got an error message.

What should I do?

Any help will be appreciated Thank you Key OS: Windows XP is not a valid Win32 application.

Just open a command prompt by clicking on  Start Menu then Run.

Just Type cmd and hit enter.


It appears the command prompt screen.

Type the following commands in it.

attrib -h -r -s C:Autorun.inf

del C:Autorun.inf

attrib -h -r -s D:Autorun.inf

del D:Autorun.inf

Do this for all the partitions of your hard disk drive and do not try to open or explore any drive of your computer while entering commands. If you tried then the commands did not work.

Hi Karyina,

      This is caused by a virus in the computer probably from a free software download. Here is what you can do look for “recycled” system folder or “autorun.inf” file. For you to find the file make sure you check that the hidden system files and folders is disabled. Then go to Internet Explorer properties and then choose “Manage Add ons” and then remove all unwanted add ons. You can also run a complete scan on your computer to remove vulnerabilities.
