    Glad all is well.
    While you were fixing you problem via Bill's suggestion I was investigating your problem.

    It seems this problem dates back to Windows 3.1 and is related to Novell protocol. Somehow the line items appear in the Autoexec.bat file on peoples system. Nearest I can tell by what I have read this is possibly due to installation of a network adapter. Anyway removing the line items referring to LSL.com and ODIhelp.exe from the autoexec.bat seems to fix the problem or renaming the autoexec.bat to autoexec.bak which is rather extreme if removing lines work. For anyone interested here are several more recent articles that refer to the problem and an old MSKB article also for reference.
