Some of my users are getting hung at boot up with mrpexe not responding error.  I have tried the following:deleting user profile and pwl file,uninstalling Outlook, Virus check. I understand it has to do with a corrupt password file but only a few users are getting this error.  Even after it seems the error is gone and the user is signed on the network, the error comes back a few logon later. WHY?? Is there anything I can do to permamently get rid of this error.

snowolfe, yes it is always the same machines that seem to plaqued with the mrpexe problem, all my machines have the same setup.  NOTE:  I was told that outlook express could be the problem, so I de-installed it on all my machines, no good, I also was told that running Nortons at boot up could be problem so I took it out of start up worked for a bit, error came back.

if you have a couple of spare simms around - change the memory (or swap memory with a working machine) i had the same problem with a couple of systems here that plagued me for a couple of months and the memory did the trick - i would be willing to bet that a swap would cause the working machine to have problems and fix the problematic one

What type of Networking are you using? Another reason that you get Mprexe errors is that you need a Bios update. How old are you computers so that can be ruled out?

MPR is the multi protocol router, part of the networking subsystem. Generally this problem is from a bad networking component, try removing then readding TCP/IP (or whatever protocol you use), if this does not fix the problem remove, reboot and readd the networking components.
