When I reboot the pc it has many popups that say missing shortcut error.
some of these are:
meroz5.ink
01bunyeu.ink
dnxv34uz.ink

I looked this up, they are some kinda graphics file. I also found them in startup folder. So I deleted them, and when I reboot they are back.

Also when I hit control alt delete....they are in my task manager running?

I have Win ME, plz help if this is familiar problem! :confused:

If you don't have CorelDRAW I am at a loss. That was the only reference I could find to .ink files.

there is a program called MS Picture it 2000, And inside it there is an option to choose pictures and Corel draw is in the list, but not on the pc.
My mother had this pc and I think maybe she deleted Corel Draw, is this possible?

I would think that is possible. It doesn't really explain the fact that you can't delete them though? If the program is gone, what would recreate them?

How are you trying to delete them?

well i cant find them anywhere else but in startup, so i remove them to recycle bin and delete. But they come back. Did I mention they are in task manager as if they were a running application? as well as other things i dont recognize like atiupdate5, winoldap, sysalert, loader, starter and many many of these ink files that are in startup.

I would try doing a search of the C drive for the files, instead of doing it from the start-up folder. That is probably why they are coming back.
