Click Start->Run and type ConfigSys. Go to the autoexec.bat window and find the offending line. If you don't want it there, delete it. If it starts with "rem" then it has been commented out and is not running anything anyway (you can leave it there if you want). The message you are getting is not really a message, it's just displaying the lines that are in your autoexec.bat file.

Enjoy,

I tried his suggestion since that would be the obvious choice. It does not work and made it worse.

I believe DrBob meant for you to run msconfig, or sysedit

Msconfig provides a better interface for users who are not familier with DOS and windows commands.
Msconfig holds your hand a little, and advises when you have some potential errors.

Sysedit performs a direct edit on the system files

To go along with Dr Bob, if you don't want to see the remarked lines in your autoexec.bat, you can put @echo off as the first line of the autoexec.bat. That will turn off all lines to the screen

This doesn't address the problem of how to remove the line out of my registry and or autoexec.bat. It only covers it up.

TheChas was correct. I meant SysEdit (a brain%&$# I guess). Anyway, if you want to post a comment with a copy of your autoexec.bat file we can figure this out.

Regards.

I concur with DrBob, please post a comment, or e-mail one of use with the text from your autoexec.bat file.

Alternately, I suspect one of 2 things.

1. There is a leftover space or character. Or the last line does not have a return (enter).2. Some line of code requires another statement.
This could be a program that is executed form any other system file.
