I recently had a bout with Aurora Adware-nasty little sucker. It took quite
some time to clean my system from all of the stuff it left behind. My
challenge is that there is an entry that needs to go:
F2 - REG:system.ini: Shell=Explorer.exe C:\WINDOWS\Nail.exe

Any suggestions-I know enough about computers to be dangerous.

Hi

Have you searched the Registry for nail.exe? If not, try that search and if
found delete that entry.
