    Hi Donna,I found this,see if it helps.


    Apparently this is related to AOL Instant Messenger, not Spinner. Anyway, try this:


    All you have to do to make the error go away is click on (start) then (run) then type (msconfig) then (ok). This will pop the msconfig menu screen. Select the (startup) tab and take the check mark out of the AIM name location. Click on (apply) and (ok). This will want you to restart your computer. When it restarts you will get a box that asks you about changes made in the start files. Select the option not to show the next time you reboot. This should work and fix the problem for windows 98 and windows ME users.

    Hi Donna,

    From what I hear, it might be related to AOL Instant Messenger.
    Maybe you just uninstalled the program?

    Go to Start/run, and type Msconfig.

    On the startup tab, uncheck everything related to AIM and AOL, click OK, and reboot.

    If no joy, it was part of some other program you uninstalled, but which was removed incompletely.

    Take another look in Msconfig/Startup, and see whether anything else is there that shouldn't be.

    If in doubt, please post your startups:

    Go to Start/run, and type Msinfo32, followed by OK.
    Go to Software Environment/Startup Programs.
    Now click Edit/'Select all', and then 'copy'
    Paste the contents in your post.

    Good luck,

    It's definitely AIM
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    "AIM"="C:\\PROGRAM FILES\\AIM95\\aim.exe -cnetwait.odl"

    cnetwait.odl calls on aim.ocm advert.ocm or other .ocm
    which calls on the XMLPARSE.DLL
