  1. I installed two fans and a chipset cooler on my mobo. i had to pull the mobo out, but it rebooted quick w/out problems, but now i get an error on bootup saying:
    Windows cannot find the file C:\something\ibm0001.exe
    i have no clue what this is or where it came from, can anybody help?

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    ibm0001.exe is part of the spysherriff malware.

    Go HERE and follow the instructions.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    Do a Google search for ibm0001.exe. You might also want to check your system for the winstall.exe file, as it also seems to be related to the above.

    It does seem to be related to a malware infection.

    Regards Howard :)
