Please post the full error message

including the error number.

This could be caused by a lot of things, but generally, something is broken in your user account. The shortcuts are pointing to a path that is not available.

Check your Environment Variables: My Computer, Properties, Advanced

that happens a lot here, so we don't get to know if we have been helpful, and it doesn't help anyone else.

Did you try the suggestion?

Your suggestion

Hi - thanks for your reply.
Yes I tried to, but when I click on "advanced properties" I get the same " the system could not find the environment option that..."
Can I try to change those properties in a file somewhere?
Sorry I am so unhelpful - this one has me stumped and other than reinstalling XPP (which I might do anyway) I can't find a solution.

You could

by Jacky Howe In reply to Your suggestion

try and run sfc /scannow and if that doesn't work try a Repair/Insallation and the try sfc /scannow again.

You could run the sfc /scannow command to have XP's or Vista's System File Checker look at all the important system files and make sure they are not corrupted.

Click Start, Run and type sfc /scannow and press Enter. Have your Operating System CD/DVD handy as you may need it.
