System 32 problem

  bassi 15:34 05 Jul 2006

On startup i get a System 32 screen come up.

I've tried running msconfig and unticking the relevant startup boxes, as suggested in a previous post.

However when i restart the System 32 screen comes up again.

If you go into msconfig again all the boxes are again ticked.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Hi VoG,
Thanks for prompt reply.
I have carefully checked both the Registry keys and they seem OK.
I have followed the how to use msconfig 3 times now and still the system 32 screen comes up when i restart.
Any other advice?
