Hello,
I have an Acer Aspire x3200 pc. I have Vista Home Premium Service Pack 2, 64-bit operating system on it. For a long time now when I fire up the pc I get this message--Could not load or run C:\users\admin\appdata\local\temp\dwm.exe' specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry. I just x out of it and go on my merry way. Is the best course of action to remove the file from the registry? Thanks

I just found out what the DWM file was for. Somehow it was deleted. I now know I really wouldn't want what the file could do, so I guess I'll just keep getting rid of the error message when I boot up. Thanks
