When windows 98 is loading I get an error message.  Error unable to open file.  When I click OK another box pops up "fnUneostorO open failed" OK and when I click OK another box pops up "fnUneostor2 open failed".  I can close an error message and eventually close the second error message however when my computer starts up again the same errors repeat.  Is there a way that I can permanently remove the unable to open file?  Thank you in advance for your help!

>Error unable to open file
what is the name of the file?
these are usually called from the win.ini or registry
check these keys in the reg


to get to the reg go to start -->run and type regedit
the usual warnings about editing the registry apply

also just to test go to start -->run and type msconfig
go to the startup tab, and uncheck all but systray and explorer (if listed)
reboot and check. if it goes away, go back and recheck one at a time, reboot after each one, until it reappears, then you have it
one other suggestin
get spybot
and check for spyware/malware
spybot is more thorough than ad aware

Thank you so much.  I tried regedit and was not sure what it was supposed to look like.  I then went into msconfig.  I did what you said and found the culprit to be Uidler and it is no longer checked, therefore, no error.

I will install spybot now.  Thanks so much!
