Hey all! This is Crespo here. I'm still on dial-up and while waiting to open my home-page and the dial-up connection "box" to appear this annoying pop-up appears:
Please wait while Windows configures Tray application. then after a minute or so, another dialogue box appears saying The figure you are trying to use is on a cd-rom. Please click here.
What's this all about? I haven't used any cd-rom. The last time i used a dvd was on this month's DVD with PC Advisor mag.
Anyone out there know how to get rid of this? As always, any help will be v. appreciated. Cheers.C.

Try a system file scan, go to Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (Watch the space between sfc and /) hit enter. You will need your XP CD
