I am new to this place and just noticed this message. For the past few days, I am having this same problem. I am using WinME and this message pops even while booting pc. After reading the messages here, I have come to the conclusion it is a Trojan virus. So, can someone suggest me how do I get rid of it. I have came across terms such as HijackThis and Killbox. I am a bit reluctant to download those since I have no info about it. Can someone give me some detail on those. Can I just delete that file (atiupdpl.exe) without having to scan it ? Thanks.

Welcome to CTH Seablues. I have split your topic out of cinnamongirl's thread. Hijack This is a diagnostic utility used by experts to find problems on a PC. Killbox is a utility that will delete hard to remove files or files that windows cannot see. A search of this site and/or a search of the Internet using Google will give you any additional information that you need.

Can I just delete that file (atiupdpl.exe) without having to scan it ?
Sure but it will probably come back. You will also have to remove the associated registry entries first. If you decide to post a log, just click on post reply in this thread. I am afraid I do not have the time or the inclination to walk you through a registry edit etc.
