Thinking that I was doing the "right thing" I downloaded all the essential updates from Microsoft from their Update site for my copies of Windows ME and Office 2000.
Unfortunately, I now get two sequential messages on windows start up:
'The IGFXTRAY.EXE file is linked to missing export HCCUTILS.DLL:IsDisplayValid'
and
'The HKCMD.EXE file is linked to missing export HCCUTILS.DLL:IsDisplayValid'
I have asked Microsoft to explain but twice they have ignored me!
Any ideas out there?

Hi,

"Igfxtray.exe enables quick access to the control panel via a System Tray icon for graphics based upon the Intel chipsests (ie, i810). These chipsets are often included on motherboards."

My first recommendation would be to go to Start/run, type Msconfig, and on the Startup tab uncheck Igfxtray.exe, as it isn't needed at startup.

Click OK, close Msconfig, and reboot.

Good luck,

OK Tony,
That got rid of the IGFXTRAY error message.
The HKCMD error is still there.
I now also get a 'System Configuration Utility' window telling me 'You are using the Selective Startup for troubleshooting your system.'
Is this significant?
John.

The selective startup message is normal, as you edited the startup list. You can just check 'don't show this window again' next time it comes up, and it'll stay away.

As for your other error, I'd entirely forgotten about it.

I'll check it out, and i'll be back! :D

Greetz,

I've found that one in connection with Intel chip sets also, in a little Google search.

Same advice: Take a look in your msconfig/startup, and see whether HKCMD.EXE can be unchecked.

Good luck,
