    Somehow the Desktop Windows Manager is no longer on my computer. I don't really want it. The problem is every time I boot up the pc I get this message---Could not load or run C:\users\admin\appdata\local\temp\dwm.exe' specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry.----I just get rid of the box and go on my merry way. I don't want to have to do this every time I boot up. The dwm.exe file does not exist on my computer. How do I remove the "reference" to it? Thanks
