.ink shortcut errors

By pam_19464 ·
Have pc with WXP. Upon starting pc, getting tons of errors regarding shortcuts missing. None of the shortcuts are valid. Stating: " is invalid and missing shortcut....."
I have cleaned up the startup folder and the all users startup folder, but these errors keep reappearing and I have to delete them before using the pc.
NAV is current and not detecting any virus. Seems like a virus, worm though.
Nothing in add/remove to cause this. Can't find anything in registry, unless I am not looking in the correct spot.
Any suggestions on how to clean this up?

Firstly, try running Ad-aware from Lavasoft ( to see if it finds anything - if it does, delete them. Restart your PC and see if you still get the messages. If you do, scan your computer using HijackThis ( and post the results here to see what is being started.

Thank you. Ad-Aware worked! No more errors.
