Strange Boot Message


J

Jim

Just started noticing this message during boot.

Immediately after the Windows splash screen disappears, a light blue window
appears on the screen with this message:

"00DBS program not found skipping autocheck"

The message is there for just an instant (less then a second) and then the
boot process is complete. Everything works just fine and I'm not certain
when this first appeared since I don't normally watch the boot that closely.
Also not certain if "00" in 00DBS are numbers or letters.

Appreciate suggestions as to what could be causing this and how I might
troubleshoot.

Something has tampered with the registry setting where things run when
your system reboots.

Before changing your registry, back it up with this popular free tool:

Using regdit, look here at the BootExecute value:

HKLM\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\CONTROL\Session Manager

The default value is for BootExecute is:

autocheck autochk *

Your system has had this added:

autocheck OODBS

You should remove this entire extra OODBS line (I don't remember how
it gets there) and just leave the value as:

autocheck autochk *

You do not want that extra line with OODBS...

Reboot and see how things look.

Then do this:

Perform some scans for malicious software first, then fix any
remaining issues:

Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware
detection programs:

Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/
SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

They can be uninstalled later if desired.
