Uh-oh!  This may indicate a viral infection of type 'EXE'.  If you go into
Windows Explorer, you can rename the 'WINDOWS' directory to
'WINDOWS-INFECTED' to warn the system to check the programs in there for
viruses before each one is loaded.  If the system won't let you rename the
directory, then you may also have the 'DLL' virus (use the 'Find' program to
look for files with 'dll' in the name - if you have some, then you're
infected!).  A re-install may be necessary.
