Hello,

I'd like to ask you about an error in my Toshiba laptop. It appears that Windows, after booting, shows a panel Line 0 (File"C:\Google\googleupdate.a3x") error. How can I solve this?

Thanks!
System Configuration: Windows 8 / Chrome 38.0.2125.111

Greetings!

Your machine is infected by a worm called #Verecno. Follow below steps to get rid of this error:
  • Press Win+r, type regedit and Enter.
  • Now press ctrl+f, type googleupdate.lnk and hit find.
  • Windows registry search and show detect entries under


HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
path. Just delete it and hit find to find next.

Similarly search for autoit3.exe, windowsupdate.lnk, googleupdate.a3x and delete it.

Good luck!
