    Command Prompt Message on Startup (Windows 8 64-bit)


    I accidentally installed an adware called Rocket tab however I uninstalled it but after restarting my computer, I am prompted with the following error message. Now, every time I start up my computer this message pops up and its very annoying. Can anyone please tell me how I can fix this error??
    Thank you

    Hello abz, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Check in your startup locations in the tutorial below to see if you have that file listed. If you do, then you could either disable or remove it to stop it from running at startup.

    Hope this helps,

    You can also run https://www.malwarebytes.org/mwb-download/ and see if that would get rid of it completely.

    Hey Shawn,
    Thank you for replying. Actually, the file was not listed in startup locations. Instead. I just refreshed the pc, I know a lot of programs have been uninstalled but the pc feels fresh
