    Every time I sutdown the computer I get a error message:

    Regenv32 has caused an error in <unknown>.
    Regenv will now close.

    Also, I tried to run msconfig and got the same message followed by:

    SYSTEM CONFIGURATION UTILITY

    Unable to syncronize the enviroment variables in the Windows Registry with the enviroment variables in the legacy file Autoexec.bat and/or config.sys

    I haven't noticed any problems with the computer other than these messages. Any ideas?

    Oh yeah, Hp 5350 Laptop 850PIII 384Mb Ram 20 GB 8Mb GForce Video WinME......

    check this article but it's a long shot http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;Q261575

    Also you may want to post the contents of your autoexec.bat file and config.sys as they are involved in the error.

    go to start/run/type sysedit, you should be able to copy and paste the files back here.

    At least I think sysedit works in me.
