hello everybody,
i have recently joined this site and found it very useful with lots of members.the problem i have is that after about one minute of starting windows i end up having to click ok to 4 dialog boxes, one after the other.there must be a reason for this.

each dialog box contains the heading rtwlan

!open settings.rtf file failed ! i click ok on this pop up box

!open networks.rtf file failed ! i click ok on this pop up box

!open statistics.rtf file failed! i click ok on this pop up box

!open about.rtf file failed! i click ok on this pop up box

can anyone explain why these boxes appear and what is rtwlan???:)
thank you

Did you get a solution to this? I've got exactly the same problem. Occured after playing around with Netgear.

Thanks

I gave you a link and you replied "thanks." It is easy to assume that you must have solved your problem based on information in that link. You need to be explicit that it did not help, did not apply, etc.

What's this "have net gear and got it from doing something with net gear"? A Netgear adapter? What's the something that you did with whatever it is?

I solved my problem. I uninstalled the last driver of Netgear's adapter, taking it back to an earlier one, installing again fresh. But then I just used Windows (Control Panel) to set up & manage the connection rather than the Netgear software and it seems to have solved all my issues. Hope that helps.
