You can Delete all the Prefetch entries from the Prefetch folder and let Windows start over again.

Just re-opened thread because I have the following error message popping up on booting.

CSgpdCtrl:shwserv.exe: Application Error.
==============================================
The instruction at "0x1004e319" referenced memory at "0x08c48420".
The memory could not be read.
Click OK to terminate program or Click Cancel to debug
==============================================

Note the top line. This shows up in the prefetch directory.
Would I be right in thinking that if I deleted this one line, it would not be any advantage, because it would re-appear next time I booted?
Is it just a RECORD of an error or is it an actual error causing my Giga Pocket 5 software not to work?
Thanks again for your help.

Try Reinstalling the software or, alternatively, doing a System Restore.

I delete Prefetch entries about once a month - the process merely starts over again from scratch.

You don't, however, delete the layout.ini file; I should have made this clear when I said you can Delete all the Prefetch (.pf) files in the folder.
