Windows cannot find error message

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello Guys.

I am using avast anti virus for my computer security, and my avast detected this virus and path of the virus, so I tried to searched it to my computer.

But after the search, this message pops up and telling me that windows cannot find the file.

How can I find the file and how can I delete that virus?

Because when trying to delete using avast it told the password protected so avast cant delete it.

Please help me for this one.


Windows cannot find ‘’. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, and then click search.

Firstly you disabled your antivirus.

Then you upgrade your windows XP.

By this way if the problem is not solution you reinstall your windows XP by formatting Drive C: means where the Windows was setup.

In this way your problem will be solved.

If you have the name of file that is causing the problem then you can find that specific file and then you can end that process. To end that process or file you need to press ALT + CTRL + DEL and then you need to go to process tab here you will see the files under the process if you have the file name just end it prom the process and virus will be gone. After this you need to find that specific file and then you will be able to remove that file.

The second method is to run your window in safe mode and repeat the same steps if it is not working in normal window mode. After you have the  file then you will be able to delete it and to end that virus. This is the easy solution of your problem in other way you need to install a new copy of your window.
