We have just bought a new PC - Pentium III 550Mhz with Win NT 4 WS SP4 pre-installed, i have installed the network components on the pc, and connected to the network ok.
however on boot-up, I am getting the error message :-
Event ID 7026
The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
UdfReadr.
question is, how do i stop this message from appearing, i am assuming it was used as part of the unattended installation carried out at the manufacturers, and is no longer needed?
your early responses would be appreciated.

Just for interest, what company did you buy your PC?

Try checking services in control panel and also startup places (ie. registry and startup folders in start menu).

Does it do it on every user, or just one of them?

Thanks, looked in Services, nothing there, looked in the startup folders and nothing there either, so looked through the registry, and found a few entries, so took a backup of the registry in case of a balls up, and then deleted the last of the keys, and it worked a treat!
