    A while back I tried installing an old scanner on my laptop but it didnt work. After uninstalling, everytime I turn on the computer I get the following message:

    'Could not load or run F:/CDSETUP.EXE specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists in on the computer or remove the referenece to it in the registry'

    I have seached for this on my laptop and found nothing. I entered the registry (Regedit) searched for it, found it and deleted it. After doing so, the message still appears. I'm at my wits end! Someone please help!

    Sometimes, there are more than 1 entry for a file in the registry. Go search again.
