    When ever my computer starts up I am constantly greeted by a Error box that states that the system is unable to locate the FAXTALKM.EXE file. This was a program that we had and deleted previously. It was attached to our auto.exe file and it was suppose to be initiated when ever the computer was started. In the absence of DOSSHELL how do I go about cleaning up my boot-up program and delete this path from my initialization string???? When already used the CONTROL PANEL function and deleted the files and components. The problem lies in removing this command.

    Thank You.

    If you're running Win98 or ME, go to Start/run, type Msconfig, and remove the check mark for this file/program at the 'Startup' tab.

    Click OK, close Msconfig, and reboot.

    Good luck,
