"Can't import file" message at startup

  Pootle Flump 21:09 12 May 2003

on startup the computer displays the message:
cannot import file: c:/windows/system32/rad83158.tmp

Does anyone understand what this means,
What effect will this have on the computer
and how could I fix this?

Kindest Regards,
Pootle Flump

As it is a temp file I would first rename it leave it for a week and if nothing happens to cause any problems. Delete it.

Oh dear! When I put '83158.tmp' into google the page is full of 'Kazaa'. Ring any bells, o pootly one?

Dont use Kazza! It caused me lots of problems, and also a virus is swarming on there called Frizzer among others.

I hate it.

Any resolve on this?

However I did bring some files across to it to install an HP6122 inkjet which has been giving me grief,on a cdrw. Could something have crept in along with it because if it has it can't be good can it?

Is there an update for norton that deals with this fizzer virus, because nothing has turned up on the scan i've run? and im up to date according to the website.

I have notice that after closing Kazaa that it still continues to use up to 60% of the proccessor and you have to end the proccess through task manager.

Thanks for all your help by the way,

if kazaa is still using procesor after shutdown it means it is functioning as a super node and using your pc resources for whatever purposes, it is part of a product called brightling or similar you are better off with kazaa lite and a download of ad aware from cnet.com
