Script engine for VBScript

by Jumping Junior / August 12, 2010 3:41 AM PDT

Hi guys, I have a 1-month old Acer desktop computer running Windows 7 Premium 64-bit system. It works wonderfully well. However, since yesterday whenever I login I get the following message:

Can't find script engine "VBScript"for script "C:\Windows\System32\OEM\_NowIntoDT.vbs".

The message does not seem to affect login or the use of the computer so far. I do not know if there are problems lurking somewhere. I normally click X to close the message or click the OK.

I must add that a day ago I removed McAfee Internet Security 60-day Trial which I did not activate. Instead, I chose Avast Free Antivirus.I have been using Avast since I got the computer.

Can anyone tell me what this message means and how can I fix the problem?

Thanks for your help.

I've just done the same as you and deleted McAfee and now I get a similar message at start up. How did you fix the problem ?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
