    When I turn on the computer I get the message (Cannot find file setup exe or one of its components. Make sure path and file name are correct and that all required libraries are available).
    When I cancel this message another message reads (Could load or run setup exe specified in the WIN INI file. Make sure file exists on your computer or remove reference to it in the WIN INI file.)
    When I cancel this message windows then loads up ok.
    Have I got a problem? I am not very computer literate.
    I am running windows 98

    Go to Start>run and type msconfig. Press enter.
    Click on the Win.ini tab Click the + in front of the Windows entry. That will be the first entry.
    Look at load=
    and run=

    Is setup.exe mentioned there? Trying to load at start from that location and therefore causing the error message.
    IF so, click on the edit button at the bottom of the page.
    Remove the reference. Click apply and Ok.Reboot.
