When I turn on my computer a box comes up and say's "Cannot import C:/WINDOWS/sp.dll:Error accessing the registry". What does that mean and how do I get rid of it?

If you read <a href=http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=57588&highlight=sp.dll>this</a> thread and jump down to the post by HKEd you find your answer.

Basically do this,

Start>Run, key in msconfig and press enter. Click on the Startup tab. Locate the entry that reads "sp" and remove the checkmark next to it. Click on Apply and follow the prompts to restart. Once Windows has restarted do this,

Start>Find>Files, key in sp.dll and press enter. When it's found, right click on it and select Delete. Leave it in the RecycleBin for a few days.

Restart Windows and you should be fine.

Let us know what happens.

I agree with Bryan. This file is not necessary to run Windows. My system doesn't have it and runs fine.

:cool:
