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.
