Windows 7: Unrecognizable Windows Message

Unrecognizable Windows Message

At least once a week during startup I receive a message from (Windows I assume), with the following information:
The message block header contains the Path "C;\Users\Jerry\AppData\Local\Nsivynv\axupovajzo.ytqyc"

Below that header is the following message:
Windows cannot access the specific device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate
permissions to access the item. (This part of the message is preceded by a white X on a red circle.)

Can anyone tell me what this file is?

I have attached a snipping tool image of the message (I think)

So, did you go to the location the message points to? Is there a file like this?

Because you've said once a week, check Task Scheduler for any task associated with this file.

Jerry,
Your flags say that you're in Florida....but where? You've never finished out your Control Panel info.

If you were close by, I'd be glad to help you with that problem. (no charge) Yes, I'm a Computer Tech.

Something is trying to call that file when you boot up your PC. That should not be all that hard to find.

Cheers Mate!

Shut down and unplug all usb devices. Cell phones, hard drives, hub devices ect.
Keep your monitor, mouse and keyboard plugged in.

Boot your system and see if the problems is still there.

I tried to research Nsivynv\axupovajzo.ytqyc" in various ways. Malwarebytes pops up a warning. So I stopped the research. One search shows some sort of cell phone and another is some kind of sync music site. They all get spanked by Malwarebytes.

MSClin, thanks for your reply. Yes, I did look at the location and the target file is there. I did a search on the internet for that file with no hits. To my limited knowledge it is not part of Windows or MacIOS. I am trying to find out what it is. I run PCMatic for my A/V and my scans return nothing. I have decided to delete the file and continue my research as time permits.

The Windows message does not happen on any schedule, I have had it happen as many as 3 startups in a row.

Layback Bear, You found more information on the file than I did. What search engine did you use?

TechnoMage2016, thanks for the offer. As I said above, I plan to delete the subject file and move on. I did however, update my profile to show I'm located in SW Florida.

Again, thanks to all for responding,
Jerry

Hi Wondermint,

Did some looking too, nothing showed up

One of the better tools to identify suspicious entries is FRST, Farbar.
follow this link download/run/post the >>2<< logs, lets see if anything else pops-up

Torchwood, thanks for the post. For reasons beyond my comprehension, when I clicked on your link my computer went into a restart. I think I'll unload my PCMatic A/V, load Malwarerbits and run a scan to see if I get any hits before I remove the offending file.

Thanks Roy,

I'll look at it from that angle if I don't find anything from Malwarebits.

I tried to delete the Nsivynv folder, but it returns almost immediately, so I have finally thrown in the towel on this problem. I bought a Mac Book Pro rather than continue to fight Windows.......... I will wipe and install Ubuntu on this notebook and use it for a backup.

Thanks to everyone for your input on my problem.
