    Each time that I sign on to my computer I get a box that says "Web Publishing Wizard" at the top. Then "The parameter is incorrect." Then under that it says "start" then under that. A little box that says "ok". What does this mean and how can I get rid of it. It seemed to start after installing Microsoft Greetings 2001 yet when I uninstalled it. I still get this error message box.
    I'm using windows 98 and a Pentium II 400mhz.

    Do this so we can take a look at your startup programs.

    Click on Start>Run, key in msinfo32 and press enter.

    In the Left pane, double left click on "Software Enviroment" then do the same on "Startup Programs". Now you should see your startup programs in the left pane.

    Click on Edit>SelectAll and then click on Edit>Copy. Now come here and click on "PostReply". Right click in the reply window and select Paste.

    Please tell me how to "Click on Start>Run, key in msinfo32 and press enter." What/where is msinfo32?

    Start>Run, key in Msconfig and press enter.

    Click on the "Startup" tab.

    Now scroll and locate the entry for "Internet Answering Machine". Now click on the checkmark next to it to Remove it. Then click on Apply, OK and follow the prompts to restart.

    Do you still get that error at startup?

    BTW, this is unrelated to your error at startup but are the words ExtraNet or DeltaNet familiar to you? I'm wondering what that one startup item is.

    Bryan,
    Are you a genius or what?
    I did what you said, and now that pesky error message is gone.
    Thank you so much.

    And yes, Extranet and Deltanet are both familiar to me. They are job related. They get me into the system at work.
