I get a different (and slightly more understandable) error
(not sure how this will translate to my email client from vnc):

c:\tmp> ls a*
ls: cannot access anvA¤ndare: No such file or directory
autoruns.chm  autoruns.exe  autorunsc.exe

I'm not really familiar with all of the changes that Corinna made
for this but I'll take a look to see if this is easy to fix.
