    I finally discovered that something in my Startup was causing the error. So I disabled the regular starup and did a selective startup. Eventually through trial and error I should be able to determine what item is causing the problem. But for now, I just dont let the startup run. (in Win98 its done through Start, Run, msconifg) Not sure how its turned off/on with XP. I assume this all started with a virus.. Jim

    I found out tha all this is because of addware and spy ware that got onto the PC. Tried cleaning the Registry, tried running Adaware (UPDATED), also tried whole punch of spy ware, adware removers including Mircorsoft's SPAM remover or something. Now this is PC is a little better and that message is gone.

    It looks like, one of the adware got loaded with a Trojan that brought up that message.
