Hi rookie-1,

Is this reall all you're getting? " Servers ( illegal operation )"?

This doesn't sound like any Windows error I've seen before.

Have you got the complete text of this error for us, please?

Greetz,

Not really, no.
It isn't clear what application's causing this error.

Could you please post your startups?

Go to Start/run, and type Msinfo32, followed by OK.
Go to Software Environment/Startup Programs.
Now click Edit/'Select all', and then 'copy'
Paste the contents in your post.

Although your startup list might stand a little trimming, it appears the posted problem is coming from this entry:

Servers Registry (Machine Run) C:\WINDOWS\OPTIONS\CABS\OLS\AOL\servers.exe

Did you have a bout with the magistr worm prior to this? It likes to place such stuff in the startup list which really do not belong, but scan clean because they are otherwise "legitimate" windows files.

Go to start and run msconfig. Click on the "startup" tab and remove the check for that item. On restarting you should no longer get the error. To permanently remove it from msconfig after testing, run regedit

Navigate to:

HKEY_Local_Machine
Software
Microsoft
Windows
CurrentVersion

RUN- (this is where it will be after unchecking it)

Win Run- highlighted, right click on and delete the entry in the right hand pane.

It would also be a good measure for you to go to this site and review other startup items, such as oemreset, wkdetect, loadqm, etc, and see if you want to keep them in startup.
