  1. I'm getting this error message from time to time. Not only do I not know what it means, I don't know what it's in reference to.

    It means that 1 or more file is missing.
    The 2 main culprits for that are hdd errors and malware.

    I just did a scan and nothing came up. I also keep getting this message:

    Pie Auto Updater

    Error while updating Guarding.p2p file. Please make sure that an internet connection is available and the file is not marked read-only.

    File not found


    I sent Guarding.p2p to the Recycle Bin and when I try to delete Pie Auto Updater from the program files I get this message:

    Error Deleting File or Folder

    Cannot delete PieAutoUpdater: Access is denied.

    Make sure the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not currently in use.

    I've already removed PieAutoUpdater from the Add/Remove programs panel.

    Its spyware then, you need to read the sticky threads in the Security and the Web forum then make a post there.
