    thats what comes up on my computer upon start up. it opens in notepad. Is this because I installed a rip of carnival cruise tycoon yesterday? Is it bad? a virus? i'd like to know and how can i get rid of it?

    well to find out if it is a virus, run anti-virus software.
    Also use spyware detecting software to see if it maybe spymare.
    The former i mentioned would be wise to now.

    It's not a virus, it's a desktop.ini file. To find it, open windows explorer > tools > folder options > view
    at hidden files and folders, choose "show hidden files and folders"
    uncheck " hide extensions for known file types"
    uncheck " hide protected operating system files"

    Look for the desktop.ini file in one or more of these locations:
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs
    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu

    Open the file and see if it contains these lines

    If it does, delete it.
