Hi

I have just removed a couple of trojans and MagistrB from a Win 95 system. At startup it now comes up with an error message that it cannot find AWLFT332.dll and then a message that it cannot complete setup of a program. I presume this is to do with AOL as it says to contact AOL with problems. We do not want AOL anyway.

How can I get rid of these messages. The system starts and runs fine so they are obviously unnecessary extras.

Many thx

Many thanks

I have installed fax onto the machine and it now loads at startup. I still have the message about setup being unable to continue due to error #18. I presume it is an AOL setup file as it says to contact AOL at a 1 - 800 number.

How do I get into what is loading at startup and remove this message and stop the fax loading - the customer never uses it. What I am looking for is something similar to MSCONFIG in 98 - possibly in the registry????

Thx again

You'll find it in one of the following registry keys:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\ RunServices
or
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

Rightclick the file you're looking for in the right pane and choose delete:

Two nice Msconfig replacements for Win 95 or Windows 2000/NT: <A HREF="http://www.mlin.net/StartupCPL.shtml">Startup Control Panel </A> and

Good luck,
