invalid boot.ini file

by mayacrunk / January 20, 2006 12:31 AM PST

Hi. I'm a new user here. Please advice me on my problem.

A couple of months ago I installed BootSkin software and used it to change my boot screen. There was no problem back then. But lately, whenever I boot my computer I got this message saying "Invalid boot.ini file from C:/windows" or something like that before the new boot screen appears. Is this a serious problem? Because it seems that everything else on my computer works well (except spyware, of course). It's just that this message annoys me so much. What can I do to remove this message?

Thanx very much!
