When I start my pc a warning appears:
Aduplicate name exists on the network!
I don't understand this at all.
Could anyone help me understand if i have a problem or not? From Scriabin.

If you are on a network then it means just what it says. Each PC on a network must have a unique name to identify it to other PCs on the system. If you are running XP then right-click My Computer and choose Properties. Click the Computer Name tab then the Change button and type in a different name. You will then need to restart the PC.
