Error Message on Startup

Dear Computer Lady,

I purchased a Dell Windows XP three months ago. At Startup I get System 32 window. What causes this and how to get rid of it at Startup?



Dear Dee,

There are several things that can cause such a problem, I would suggest you use msconfig to turn off items that are starting when windows starts and see if you can find the culprit.

To see all the items that are loading when your computer starts, click on “Start” then “Run” and type MSCONFIG in the Run dialog box. Click the “OK” button, or just hit the enter key to display the “System Configuration Utility” window.

Click on the “Startup” tab, and you will see a long list of items. Every item with a check mark in front of it is running. To stop items from running the next time you start your computer, just remove the check mark and click “OK” when you are done. You will be prompted to restart your computer.

You can turn off any items you wish, but some you will want to keep running, especially, things like your antivirus.

For the rest of the entries, you can try researching them in this huge online database:

It might take a little time, but it will be worth it when you discover exactly which program is causing the error message on your computer.
