Login problem on Windows xp due to mscd.exe


Recently we received a mail from one of our readers having some login issues with windows xp due to a file named mscd.exe ,so when ever he tries to login an error message pops up saying “error loading mscd.exe”

So what is mscd.exe ?
mscd.exe is basically a spyware or adware which infects your system in the following fashion:

  • Installs programs.
  • Deletes programs.
  • Registers Browser Help Objects.
  • Creates Run Once Keys.
  • Runs other programs.
  • Creates known malware.
  • Creates copies of itself.

If you are able to login into your PC, update your anti-virus definitions and then run a full virus scan on your PC. This may help fix the problem. But if this does not help, then back up all your important data on some DVD or any other external device. Format your system completely and re-install Windows on your machine.
Tip: To avoid so much inconvenience make sure you install proper anti-virus software and keep it updated regularly.
