Hello,

I have upgraded to Windows 8.1. Recently I installed Webroot (from Best Buy). After that whenever I turned on my Lenovo laptop, I get the error message on a "Windows Script Host" icon - "Can not find script file "C:\ProgramData\Lenovo-21480.vbx". Please help! Thanks!

Webroot probably deleted the file thinking it was a virus. Leaving the start command still pointing to it. This web page gives instructions for finding and deleting the start instruction in the registry. As always backup the registry before deleting anything.

Thank you so much for your prompt response and the links. I ran "Autoruns" and unchecked the .vbs file and it worked! I appreciate your help!!!
I also noticed there are several files indicate "not found" in the "everything" tab on Autoruns. Should I uncheck those as well?

I'm not that familiar with Autoruns so I cant' give you an opinion.
