Hi, thanks for your reply!

would it be the software as it is a brand new printer? Also i have downloaded service pack 2 would this have caused a message like this or could it be a virus??

thank you for your help

yes, there is a space after expand....
if your cd drive is d, simply copy paste this:
expand d:\i386\autoexec.nt_ c:\windows\system32\autoexec.nt
