I intended to say that I can't recall what the names of these various areas were nor anything about the file names that the scan said it couldn't find. I do, however, remember what day it is and my name. grandpaw
When I boot up, I get a message about vshinit.vxd. I'm posting separately asking for help in dealing with this. But in Googling that file name I came across an item from RescuePC about fixing all vxd errors. So I downloaded it and it ran a scan that said I have many problems. It listed several areas which it scanned and the number of progblems in each. Below that was a window which showed details for each of these areas. In the details, it simply listed upteen files that its said could not be found. The window with the scan results had a minimize button that I clicked, but it disappeared and didn't get minimized. However, I also had clicked the Print button, which, instead of printing, saved info in My Documents. However, the info there is simply a list of some 700+ files. This is the last part of that list:
764->C:\Program Files\Spybot - Search & Destroy\SpybotSD.exe
770->C:\Install AOL Communicator\ac_install.exe
I was afraid to click on the button to solve the problems, but I thought I'd see if anyone has a thought as to whether I should do that or just ignore RescuePC, which is at http://healthycomputerclub.net/Software/PCRescue/aff0214.html .
I have Windows 98SE and use IE6.
