ckb, here are the entries in the registry where you described:
In that error 53 message I get on start up, it says "die" in the title bar of the pop up.
Could it be the entry referring to die.exe that is causing that? The thing is I have to be absolutely certain that anything I delete will not harm the laptop because if I fuck it up words cannot even begin to describe the amount of shit I am in.
thanks for your help
Canadian *surprised*, i always had yuo figured for an East Coast Tard, dunno why i had that impression
anyways, if yuo are terrified to just delete the damn thing, we can do it the pussy way
to be honest i recken yuo can dump most of yuor hive and yuor IBM will thank yuo for it, way too much shit starting up in the background
click Start, choose Search, then Files and Folders.
search for die.exe on yuor C drive.
when yuo find it, right click on it and choose Properties.
if it's less than 1.44 MB, cut and paste it to a floppy.
then, remove that reference to the file in the registry.
if all goes well, there you go.
if not, boot into safe mode, re-enter the registry entry for die.exe and copy the file from the floppy back to it's original location.
if the file is too big for a floppy, try renaming it and/or moving it to a different location.
that way, the registry entry will not be able to find it.
if all goes well (yuo will still get an error concerning die.exe, but it will now be because the program cannot be found) yuo will know that the die.exe program is useless to yuo
that is all
