Have you installed anything recently...hardware or software?

Also, can you use your computer after the error message?

hi there, yes i have spybot actually
thanks

i can still use it yes, just have to click ok and its fine, just everytime i start up

Did the error message only occur after you had installed spybot? If it is, then it is probable that it is something to do with that. If it isn't then we'll have to wait for a more advanced user to try to help.

Sorry!

cheers

It might have something to do with your spybot...i can't remember the exact name...'definitions' for the program. If you can find an update button on the program and update these definitions, then restart.

It may not be to do with the definition things, but thats my guess. No harm can come of it...unless anyone else has a better idea...which they most likely will

go to start>run type sfc /scannow (note the space between sfc and /)

Have you XP disc to hand

If the above does not work

go to start>all programmes>accessories>system tools>system restore

Now click on the "radio button" that says "restore my computer to an earlier time", click on next and then restore it to before spybot was installed

You might want to have a look at the 'Spybot S&D' website.
