Error messages in application log of event viewer

  Rhuddlan 09:05 02 Jun 2003

Since updating my graphics card drivers, which were not digitally signed by microsoft, I have had errors in the application log in the event viewer, one after another, and when I look at the time of these errors occuring, they seem to have a 5 second gap in between them saying the following:

Catalog Database (704) Database recovery failed with error -1216 because it encountered references to a database, 'C:\WINDOWS\System32\CatRoot2\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}\catdb', which is no longer present. The database was not brought to a consistent state before it was removed (or possibly moved or renamed). The database engine will not permit recovery to complete for this instance until the missing database is re-instated. If the database is truly no longer available and no longer required, please contact PSS for further instructions regarding the steps required in order to allow recovery to proceed without this database.

And when I click on the help and supportlink for info on this error, it keeps saying that this error cannot be found. Is this something to worry about, I only reinstalled windows xp home two weeks ago, regards, Rhuddlan.
