PTV-DNA has been corrupted?

  jamtarts 18:04 19 Sep 07

When Windows loads in after start-up this comes up and i have absolutely no idea what it is..."PTV-DNA has been corrupted,please re-install the software",i don't think i've got software for this,i don't even know what it is!

According to here click here it's World Rally Championship site.

I guess you better redownload and install whatever you got from there.

I've never downloaded anything from there though!

Someone else has perhaps?

The link says that C:\Program Files\WRC - DNA\launch.exe is set to run every time the system starts, with this software.

Can you see if you have that file, and is it set to run at start-up?

I don't have that file!

I'm sorry but I could find no other references to this file on the web.

Could someone else have downloaded this - then uninstalled it, all without you knowing? (and inadvertently left behind some traces).

When did it start - what did you do, or load just before it started?

Have a look at just what is set to run when windows starts, and block out anything that looks anything like WRC or PTV-DNA.

Do a full AV check with a good AV program, clean out teporary files, check for spyware (ie all the standard clean-up things).

Perhaps you could try a system restore to before it started?

If you don't know how to do any of the above, please just ask again.
