  cfs 19:24 23 Jul 2004

2 problems - help!!!!

XP Home - 512Mb Ram - AMD XP2000+

1. On bootup the window ........."executing...\System32\wlnotify.dll" takes up to 1 minute to clear.

2. Although all sounds work perfectly when setting-up/testing the "system sounds" from the Control Panel, the startup/log on and shutdown/ log-off sounds do not function at all at start-up or shutdown.

Help please - Colin Stevens

The sound files may be damaged, You are better off going to Control Panel\Sounds and remove sounds for start and shut down as they slow the above down
