Windows pop-up warning - Windows XP

  Darbyal 11:09 16 Apr 09

Every time I use the 'RUN' facility I get the Windows pop-up message "Windows cannot find etc" and then proceeds to open the site requested. Is there and easy way to eliminate this Windows pop-up please?

When you say "Every time I use the 'RUN' facility" etc. I don't understand the question, as the 'Run' facility takes you into the 'Registry'?

You can use run to run programs, not just registry

Thank-you for your interest Graph. But I could also run programmes from "Run". I have recently cleaned up my hard disk and de-fragged so that may be the culprit.

In case it doesn't try this, it will re-register all the Direct Link Library (dll) files in the registery
At Run type: regsvr32 /i shell32.dll Press enter
