    My problem is that when I log off my computer and log back on my desktop icon will not work at all. Even when I go to the start menu and try to run a program, they will not work either. But I have found a way around this; I go to start run and type in C:\command.PIF it will somehow unlock the programs. Any help would be very much appreciated

    For those that may be reviewing this problem there is History to it listed in this thread.

    I will assume that the removal of the startup items suggested in the prior thread fixed the problem and now the problem has reoccured after you did a minor fix to unlock you home page.
    I still believe there is a startup problem going on here and am wondering if that delay program you unchecked may have a hand in it. Please go to http://home.earthlink.net/~rmbox/Reticulated/Toys.html and download the startup log. If you require an unzipped version look at bottom of page for same.
    Once downloaded doubleclick program exe and it will produce a log within a text file that lists all programs starting from many areas. Copy and paste the results back here so they can be reviewed.

    REM Notes:
    REM DOSSTART.BAT is run whenenver you choose "Restart the computer
    REM in MS-DOS mode" from the Shutdown menu in Windows. It allows
    REM you to load programs that you might not want loaded in Windows,
    REM (because they have functional equivalents) but that you do
    REM want loaded under MS-DOS. The two primary candidates for
    REM this are MSCDEX and a real mode driver for the mouse you ship
    REM with your system. Commands that you want present in both Windows
    REM and MS-DOS should be placed in the Autoexec.bat in the
    REM \Image directory of your reference server. Please note that for
    REM MSCDEX you will need to load the corresponding real-mode CD
    REM driver in Config.sys. This driver won't be used by Windows 98
    REM but will be available prior to and after Windows 98 exits.
    REM
    REM This file is also helpful if you want to F8 boot into MS-DOS 7.0
    REM before Windows loads and access the CD-ROM. All you have to do
    REM is press F8 and then run DOSSTART to load MSCDEX and your real
    REM mode mouse driver (no need to remember the command line parameters
    REM for these two files.
    REM
    REM - You MUST explicitly specify the CD ROM Drive Letter for MSCDEX.
    REM - The string following the /D: statement must explicitly match
    REM the string in CONFIG.SYS following your CD-ROM device driver.

    REM MSCDEX.EXE /D:OEMCD001 /l:d
    REM MOUSE.EXE

    mscdex.exe /d:IDECD000 /L:M

    I see a items that were not in the original Msconfig listing and are there now.

    Here is what I want you to remove and want you to recheck since you are running WinME.

    Uncheck these
    Detect"="C:\\Program Files\\iNTERNET Turbo 2001\\idetect.exe /auto
    RealJukeboxSystray"="C:\\PROGRAM FILES\\REAL\\REALJUKEBOX\\TSYSTRAY.EXE
    "RealTray"="C:\\Program Files\\Real\\RealPlayer\\realplay.exe

    Recheck these
    Also your second loadpowerprofiles should be checked and also *statemgr
    which is your system restore manager.
    Click apply, click ok and restart.

    Now go to your startup folder and remove this startup icon.
    These are shortcuts located in your c:\Windows\StartUp folder
    C:\WINDOWS\Start Menu\Programs\StartUp\RealDownload.lnk

    After all is done does message still appear?

    Please do. Take note of your startup group as is now (run startup again) so you can save to the text file. If occurance happens again rerun the startup program and compare to see what may of changed. Limit any further new downloads or add ins until we get this system stabilized. this will give you time to start creating some valid restore points also. I am also curious about the command.pif which I will ask someone about.
