    Am using XP Pro SP2
    A few days back had installed Longhorn Transformation Pack.
    After a long hassle have been able to uninstall it. There is no trace of it on my system.
    However everytime i start my computer i get a screen as under :
    __________________________________________________
    C:\Windows\System32\CMD.EXE
    ____________________________________________________
    Lomghorn Transformation Pack - This will rebuild you windows to apply new Longhorn icons.
    Press any key to continue

    Please help me to get rid if this message which originates fro C:\Windows\System32\cmd.exe.

    Can i delete the cmd.exe file in System32 ?
    Regards
    Nariman

    Thanks. msconfig showed "reico". whch i could not recognise.
    Ran search and found two files with name "reico". One was a ms-dos batch file. Deleted the same from C:\docu & settings\all users\start menu\programs\startup.
    Now everything is fine.
    This is for your info.
    Regards
