Error Message?

By Walilaw ·
Every time l logon (WNT4 workstation), I get the following error message:

Cannot find the file ?C:\Program? (or one of its components). Make sure the path and the filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

I don?t havea file or folder called Program in C drive. I search the registry there is no entry for C:\Program and there is nothing in the PATH as well.

Please HELP.

Check all your startup folders for programs.
The "all users" and "adminstrator" have their own startup folders.

There is nothing in any of the startup folders, I have cleared them all.

Log on as the local admin and see if you recieve the same error. Check ADD\Remove programs to see if there is an application listed that is no longer on your machine or working properly (possibly the program was deleted, but not uninstalled via add\remove utility)

There is a section of the registry that also launches(tries to launch) programs at start-up. Check these registry locations for broken points to non-existant apps.

H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Also \RunOnce.
