    Hi,

    on booting my computer everyday I get a message box called,

    Noltray

    runtime error 429

    activeX component can't create object.

    What does this mean? and how do I get rid of it?

    thanks.

    cubbycuddly.

    Are you sure it's not Aoltray instead of Noltray your seeing at startup?

    Do you have AOL as your ISP? Have you ever installed AOL connection software on the PC?

    Are you running W95, W98 or Windows ME?

    Click on Start>Run, key in msconfig and press enter. Now click on the Startup tab. See if you can locate the entry for Noltray. If so, remove the check mark next to it and click on Apply. Following the prompts to restart.

    Let us know what happens.

    If you can't locate Noltray, follow RollingRog's post at the link below to get Startuplog and copy/paste the contents of your startup to a reply here.
