Scipt Host Error [Solved]

Ask a question Lexie - Last answered on Feb 12, 2016 05:17PM
Hello,

I recently upgraded to Windows 10 from a Windows 8 machine and am now experiencing a script host error that pops up every 20-30 min. roughly:

C:\ProgramData\AC5F449C-FCDD-951A-4D5B-E5989DD93616}\2.0.1.9\fota.txt

This appeared after I ran a disk clean-up, think it might have removed something it shouldn't have.

In the least techy way, please tell me how to fix. I'm not an idiot but my tech skills w/ computers is limited.

Thank you!!

That was the first thing I did, took forever and thought I was clear until bam, the stupid error popped up again. I can try running cc cleaner again but as of now, no luck.

You probably need to Malwarebytes to clean the source

I just ran CC cleaner again including the registry and sure enough the script error popped up after about 20 min., same error. Is Malwarebytes a program?

or Malwarebytes antimalware:

I ran Malwarebytes and I think it helped! Had the laptop on for about an hour now w/ no pop-up, thank you very much! :)

I suggest you download the free version of CCleaner and run a Registry clean. That should solve your problem.

Good Luck
