    Have a Windows XP Home Edition. Whenever I boot, get following: "Icu.exe - Unable to Locate Component...This application has failed to start because WNIAPI.dll was not foumd. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

    Have no idea what the problem is, nor how to resolve it, nor -if insignificant, how to get rid of the message.

    Would dearly appreciate any help and explanations; I'm a true novice.

    I haven't been able to find wniapi.dll on the internet or on my computer.
    I'll give you some thing to do, I can't say if they will help.
    Try Error checking first.

    Microsoft has a tool that will scan your computer
    Try not to loose track of it when you download.

    1. Error Checking- Section 4 and 5 takes the longest.
    Start - my computer - right click local disk (C) - properties - Tools Tab -
    Error checking section - Check now - check mark both boxes - Start -
    This requires a restart to begin.


    2. Start - Run - type - sfc /scannow - OK
    Don't forget the space between c and /
    You may need the Recovery CD if any thing is found wrong.
    Don't insert unless asked for. Takes about 35 minutes.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Tried scans both ways, to no avail. From my research, my problem may have something to do with Java Script, but I've no way of knowing.

    Please click here to download and install the HijackThis installer.

    Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

    The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

    Do not fix anything

    wniapi.dll is a process belonging to the Airgo Networks Win32 API program. That's all I've found. As for ICU.exe, I have no idea what it could be.

    Going through the HJT log, I found the entry that rgsl is talking about:

    04 - Startup: wireless-G Notebook Adapter with SRX utility.lnk = c:\program Files\Linksys\wireless-G Notebook Adapter with SRX utility\lcu.exe

    Are you having any trouble connecting to a wireless network/your home Internet connection?

    Go to http://www.linksysbycisco.com/US/en/support and do a search for the model of your wireless adapter. Download and install the drivers, then restart your computer if necessary.

    Let us know how this goes.

    Thank you; downloading the drivers from Linksys eliminated the Icu.exe error message; can't thank you enough! HOWEVER, I now find that whenI boot up, each time, I lose "Windows configuration of network settings." I have to go back and re-check it each time and then repair the connection (which is tied to the Wireless Adapter).

    As I previously wrote, downloading the the driver for my Linksys WPC54GX (version 2) wireless network adapter card eliminated the Icu.exe error message I was getting when I booted up, for which I am most thankful.

    However, it seems that the adapter card assumes sovereignty and voids selection of "Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings." The selection has to be re-done each time I boot up...if I am to view wireless networks and log on to mine.

    Any way to have my cake and eat it too?
