    Hi,

    MSSYSMGR is linked with the following software: ( assuming typo )

    Try disableing it in Startup.

    Start > Run ....type in....msconfig ......in the Startup options uncheck any links to mssysmgr. You can always start the programs by clicking on the icons or from the program list. ( in ME it may be msconfig.exe )

    Does this help?

    This seems to work--won't know for sure since it was only a frequent problem.

    Thanks for you help
