    This computer brings up the 'MSVCR.DLL missing' caption after startup. However most things seem to be working normally.

    I have recently installed the latest edition of AVGfree, which I have been using for some time.

    Understood...

    Do you have ZoneAlarm or ZoneAlarm Toolbar installed?

    I have Zonealarm and Spybot, but not the Zonealarm toolbar. Both have been installed for some time without problems.

    Apparently sometimes ZoneAlarm has some problems with AVG.....I would try uninstalling AVG and restarting the PC and reinstalling AVG and see if that fixes it.

    Tried that, but no result. The box still comes up - but not while I am doing anything; a few minutes after starting, while looking at an unrelated web site.
