    Each time I boot my computer I get the following: "IMGWALK.DLL with the option to choose a program with which to run this file. I always click "cancel" (since I don't know what else to do) and it continues to boot to the windows desktop. I can then continue with no problems. But I find this annoying.
    I have a program "IMAGE TRANSFER" and find the subject file in C:\PROGRAM FILES\COMMON FILES\MICROSOFT SHARED\MSINFO".
    Any help?
    Thanks

    No. It's been some time back, but I don't recall how long ago.

    Its a shared DLL that was not erased when the program was uninstalled, probably because it was still in use when u did the uninstallation. To remove such dead DLLs, u can try using jv16 PowerTools. It is a pack of system cleanup tools like registry cleanup, DLL cleanup, file cleaner.... Download it from here: http://www.macecraft.com/downloads/jv16pt_setup.exe
