Start-up error messages problem: 7 January 2005 15:15 (New to this - Is this the best place to post this question ?) Hi, After a search for temporary files, (i.e. *.tmp), followed by their removal,(recommended by Kodak for a clean installation of digital camera software),I repeatedly receive two error messages when I start the computer. With the understanding that you should be reading 6 little squares inside the single quote marks, their wordings are:- 1) Windows cannot find ' '. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. 2) Could not load or run ' ' specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry. From Ted Ziegler's reply: It sounds like some program wants to start with Windows, but the registry entry needed to do this has been corrupted.Don't touch the registry unless and until you know what you're doing. I cannot search for the reference ' ' as I cannot make the 6 little squares appear in the entry line of Search. Also, have no experience with the registry, so I will not attempt to edit it by hand. However, can someone advise whether they think a downloaded registry cleaner, (or some other use of specialised knowledge), would be likely to be successful in removing the reference ' ', or blocking these error messages, as I am reluctant to call in an expert just for this, when everything else seems to be OK.
