    Since making some software changes, I am now getting a pop-up error message 'FindFirst Notification Cannot find the specified path' at boot up. I could not do a system restore as WinXP was fully reinstalled recently and the system refused.

    How do I get rid of this? I do not have a Windows disk, and do not want to reformat.

    Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to TSG....

    Some system specs would be great and include the make and model number of the computer.

    Also you will eventually need the recovery software for the computer I would suggest that you contact the computer manufacturer for the proper disks for your computer.

    Any error messages also would be great - 'FindFirst Notification Cannot find the specified path' at boot up makes me wonder if you have Microsoft Visual Basic installed on the computer?

    Hi. It's a Toshiba Tecra A2 PTA20A-02R002. I have Win XP SP2 on it.

    Unfortunately, my recobery disk only allows for a a complete reformat.

    ..that enabled me to figure out what this is. It is from a partially-installed incompletely-uninstalled .Net.
