It must be in AUTOEXEC.BAT, WIN.INI or CONFIG.SYS

Examine each file and see if this RAD80ccb file is in there. If so, then remove it.
You can run MSCONFIG to see the contents of these files, and disable items from there.

hope this helps

Hi

Have you tried to boot Windows in Safe Mode? Do you still get the error message? When you searched for the file, was explorer set to show all files (including hidden files)?? If hidden files are not visible then they won't show up in your search results. However, the message you recieve indicates that the file exists, because the error states "error opening the file". It may be that the file is stored within a bad cluster.

To sort this run scandisk in Safe Mode or from a DOS Prompt, or use a disk utility program such as Norton Disk Doctor to check the drive for errors. When you run these programs make sure that the program will perform a "Thorough" check of the drive - meaning that it will physically test the surface of the platters to check for damage. If you have a bad sector (a small damaged area of your drive), the file will not be able to be accessed. Running one of these programs should identify such an error and attempt to move the data stored in that cluster into a new healthy cluster.

Good luck

Run Sysedit and look for entries in the run or load lines of win.ini. Also check your startup folder for any shortcuts that ref this file. You can also run the System startup config util from the System Information Utility under accessories / system tools and check what is being started look for ref to the file and uncheck the option to run that ref. If there it is probably in the registry. HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Currentversion\Run or Run services\or Run once. Could also be under same key in current user.
