Registry Error Popup Window...

By rhaney ·
Greetings. Every now & then we receive this popup error message from Registry Editor: "Cannot import C:\Windows\kak.reg:Error opening file. There may be a disk or file system error." This is a Win98se PC with plenty of disk space and ram present. Any thoughts? Thanks!

Start/Run/regedit and enter key.
Click on EDIT/FIND.
And in the find what box, fill in: C:\WINDOWS\KAK.REG and click on FIND NEXT.
Once it finds it delete that key or line.
Good luck.

I've since found the real solution- it's a well documented (kakworm) virus

It definitely looks like your file or files may have been infected by the KAK worm virus and possibly wrote themselves to the registry try using Either Mcafee virus scan or Norton Anti-virus with the latest updates to clean it and also try going through the registry and delete all references to the KAK worm virus.
