1. And this "32 folder" if that is what it is, has what title in the top colored bar of the window please?

2. Please note that just above the text editor (where you enter a question on the forum) is the following paragraph, and if certain information is not present in your question, our reply may not be of much help:

If this folder is the "System32" folder, then please look in the registry for an entry at the path below. (Before making any changes there, be sure to make a backup of the registry, just in case you make some changes that you don't like.)

HKLM,Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, or

Look for an entry on the right side that has no value, or is indicated as below:


If it's there, delete the entry, save and close the Registry Editory. Restart the machine.

Here's a link describing the problem and the solution that usually works.,4149,1401312,00.asp

If that doesn't take care of the problem, then try this:

Open the MSCONFIG utility (Start/Run type in MSCONFIG click OK) and deselect (uncheck) the /L:ENG entry from
the STARTUP tab, click Apply, click OK and restart your computer.

Hope this helps.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
