  1. Hi, everytime I load up windows I get the error message that this file c:\WINDOWS\sytem32\sgbrquz\smss.exe is not available at the location. I have read through some of the other threads but have found difficulty in transfering this to my problem.

    Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. x x
