Cannot find 'C:\SETUP95.EXE'

When I log in to Administrator on my NT4.0 server I get a window stating:

Cannot find the file 'C:\SETUP95.EXE' (or one of its components). Make sure the path and filename are correct and that all required libraries are available.

Apart from this annoying message, my computer functions perfectly.  This first occured after I tried installing Windows 95 on the same PC as NT4.0 Server.  There are no files in either Startup directory.

How do I get rid of this message???

Did you have NT4 installed on the machine first? Is the file system FAT or NTFS?
If you run regedit (take care you could screw up the machine totally) and do a find on setup95.exe you will probably find the key which calls this on startup.
Export this key to a text file using the file menu in regedit, then remove the value. Reboot.
