Every time I start my Asus laptop ~ 3 months old I get the above msg.

I have no problem with any of my programs. Look forward to your assistance.

Before or after after logon? Does is display more information, for example which file file it cannot find?

I followed the directions above doing aup clean startup and didn't get my error msg. I noticed in start up two programs that probably were a possible problem. One was connected to Sweet Packs toolbar. I unchecked and when I started normally no message. Thank you for the assistance. rosemere
