    Hi All, I have Win98 and I currently have 2 error messages when I get to my desktop:

    "Registry Reminder.exe

    1. Cannot find file "Registry Reminder.exe (or one of its components). Make sure path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

    2. "Desktop"

    Could not load or run registry reminder.exe specified in the WIN.INI file. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the WIN.INI file.

    When these pop up it allows me to hit ok and continue booting.

    I started receiving these after I got rid of a bunch of files that got zapped by a virus; I probably deleted some files that I shouldn't have and this is the result. However, these messages haven't really affected the performance of my computer, they are just annoying as heck and I would prefer to have a clean startup, ya know what I mean? Thanks for any advice.

    If no joy, please do this:

    Go to http://www.spywareinfo.com/downloads.php#startup , and download 'Startuplist'.

    Unzip, doubleclick it, and it will generate a text file that will list all running processes, all applications that are loaded automatically when you start Windows, and more.

    Go to Edit > select all, copy it and post the contents here.
