On restarting this NT Workstation machine, get a message (apparently from agent32.exe) saying "Execution of the Specified command has failed".  Click OK and the startup proceeds apparently largely normally.

Annoyance though.  Any Ideas

this file might be in the windows registry Run Key

1. start regedit, ie run regedit
2. locate the following key

HKLM\Softwares\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

3. frm the right hand pane see if this file is in the list, "agent.exe", if it is there, then back up that key ie select Run key from the left hand side pane and from the file menubar select export and save it as anything just for backup

4. now delet that value that contains the file agent32.exe  "DELETE THE VALUE FROM THE RIGHT HAND SIDE AND NOT THE KEY RUN FROM THE LEFT HAND SIDE"

5. restart windows, do you still get that message??

cheers

Sorry to take so long to get back

Solved the problem, not via your route.  Found evidence that it was the fax program Relayfax , called their support and they recognized the message provided an updated program
