Error Message on boot-up

  Satchell 15:01 23 Jan 2004

After deleting many 'useless' files the other day, although I am still able to carry on, I get the following error Message Box each time I start my PC (with Windows ME):

WJView Error
ERROR: Could not execute Main: The system cannot find the file specified

I think I must have ditched something by mistake.
Can anyone explain?

Thanks for the quick reply, Aubey, I'm off to give it a try now. I'm sure I will be able to tick the resolved box when I get back.

Aubrey, if you are still there?
Couldn't try solution 1)"c:\windows\system32 you can delete wvjiew.exe and not get the error again." as there was nothing there except 'drivers' folder
I dont understand solution 2) "the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" (remove wvjiew.exe)?
How do I get to the 'registery'?

Start, run, type in


and click OK.

Before you do anything else, File/Export and save a copy to the desktop. You can double click this to restore the registry if things go wrong.

Then open up the tree in the left hand pane until you get to wvjiew.exe , highlight it and press Delete. X to exit the registry editor.

Hi Satchell.

I only found that site by a search in Google. I'm far from being expert. You get into the registry by going to Start > Run then type regedit But tread VERY carefully. Do a backup and try to get more expert help.

Hi VoG.

I'm glad you came on. You can give Satchell some of your expert help.

Thanks again you guys.
I'm off again to take the test.
Back shortly

2) "the registry at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" (remove wvjiew.exe)

I followed the above path (and a few others!)but have still failed to locate wvjiew.exe file?
I think this is going to be a long job?
Am I right in thinking that once located all I have to do is delete it?
As for solution 3)It seems I have to become a subscriber to read the solutions there?

OK, try a different tack.

Start, Run, type in


and click OK.

Look for WJView on the Startup tab and untick it of it is there. Then click OK to exit.

It is only the Me solutions that require subscription, so there are plenty more solutions to try out.
Good this init, quite educational.
Back soon.
