Go to run and type "sfc". You'll need your Windows disc. It'll scan for missing, changed or damaged files and replace them with the ones from the Windows CD.

Scan all files on your computer for viruses.

If it doesn't show anything, click here for this thread.

Make a copy of your msconfig.exe file, rename the copy to msconfig.com, double click the new file, and look under Startup to see if there's a reference to wincfg.scr (but it may be a different virus, if there's one).

If it's the same, follow the suggestions in that thread. Otherwise, post back.
