How to fix Can not find Script file C:\Windows\run.vbs in Windows 10

Today,i faced with a issue While i login, an error box popped out with Message stating can 

not find Script file "C:\Windows\run.vbs" surrounded by a blank black screen.After 

Sometime i finally Solved the problem  by doing a registry edit.

And here is the solution that might help you when your PC displays Such an error.

Why this error happens ???

This error is usually caused by some virus that exists on our System.the .vbs files are 

stored in System32 folder,this virus deletes/moves the files,making our system to produce 

such an error.

Just follow the steps below...

in your System becoming unstable,i'm not responsible,if you typed it wrongly or others 

that May cause your system to fail.

Try at your Own risk...

Step 1 : Login to Your Windows 10 PC.

Step 2 : Press Windows + R Keys.

Step 3 : Type regedit

Step 4 : Hit Enter.

Windows is installed on different drive (say f) then type the drive letter F instead of C on the 

next step.
