Media Player v9

Can anyone help please!!

Each time my 'puter boots up, the following message appears: c\:windows\system32\services\wmplayer.exe file missing.

I have reinstalled WMP, and WMP works fine, but this message still appears at boot up!! The message suggests to delete the line associated with WMP in the registry, but I dont know how to do this, as I may cause more problems!! I use Windows XP Home Ed.

This is the response to a similar question in another forum:

"The file the error refers to is not the legit Windows Media Player, it's spyware. There is no "services" folder under System32. The spyware removal program correctly removes the spyware, but does not clean up the startup entries for it.

"Go into Misconfig (Start>Run>type misconfig and then OK) and remove any entries for "xpsystem" (there will be at least three - one in Run, one in RunServices, and one in WIN.INI)"
