DELDIRO.EXE

by jerrywh1 / October 29, 2004 5:29 AM PDT

In spite of the fact that I'm unable to locate this file, useing the "search" function, it keeps showing up as an orphan file when I try to run the utiliy file "Startman". When I choose to or not to remove it from the start up list, the computer locks up. I have to use "ctrl+alt+del" and quit "Startman" to regain control of the machine.
Thanks in advance
Jerry

I would suggest you download and run SpyBot and/or Adaware. Might be some of this spyware stuff. Couldn't hurt to check.

Try using Google. I found a missing file that way. People are not aware how helpful Google is finding PC fixes of whatever nature they may be. I run SpyBot and AdAware and they're great.

This is located in your Registry editor under the settings for your local machine. You can also check in the settings for the current user. Look for the folder "software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run" or also look in "software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\runonce". While you are there, check for other viruses. If you find deldiro.exe, highlight it and hit delete, being very careful that it is the only folder highlighted. You don't want to screw up your registry. It is always a good idea to backup your computer before you try to fix problems in the registry.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
