Do you have a scanner?

Go to Start > Run > Copy and paste:

MSCONFIG

Click "ok"...

Then go to "Startup" and revove the tick from "pmxdetect.exe" or "pmxdetect" Click "ok"

Restart...

Messge gone (hopefully)

Yes, I have a scanner. I found the file.. will unticking this box alter its use? Or make it so I just start my scanner from Programs?

  powerless 22:55 26 Mar 03

It will not alter its use you can still use the scanner.

You should still be able start the sanner from programs.


Although in saying that - if you have any futher problems, like you cannot use your scanner pop the tick back in.
