Insufficient privilege message when going into Windows

Getting the message "Windows could not upgrade the file NUL from c:\temp\glb1a2b.exe. Insufficient privilege:NUL. Windows could not upgrade one or more system files before starting" when booting into Windows. Press a button then Windows runs OK. However, the file mentioned above does not even exist and I would like to get rid of the message. I have been told by the user of the PC that no software has been installed recently.

Check your win.ini and system.ini to see if any mentioning of the file.

In the program manager, click on file, click on run, type "SYSEDIT", click okay, that should bring up about five files, autoexec.bat, config.sys, system.ini, ect..
look, or click search and find and find "glb1a2b.exe" IN EACH ONE OF THOSE FILES.. When you find the line that has that, you can probably remove it.. it has to be in one of those files.. probably in the autoexec.bat if it is pointing to NUL..

It turned out Windows had created a file called wininit.ini that contained this reference.
