Error message on windows 2000

  I had a window pop up on my windows 2000 that
said

 'Couldn't find c:\windows\system\djrunn2.exe - check
spelling and path'


     What does this mean?

Hmm I cant find anything on this.....

You could remove it from the registry.

Its probably under
HKLM/Software/Microsoft/Windows/Run

   Hmm, the interesting part is that there is
a djrunner.exe in c:\windows\system\bin.

    I think what might be happening is that a program is running that expects the second version, but not the first.   So far it has not impacted the performance of my machine.

    And how would I remove something from the registry that isn't there in the first place?

The path listed is probably referenced in one of two common start up locations for Windows 2000:
1) In the Registry at HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run                  
2) In Programs | Startup

The executable might belong to a program recently uninstalled.

Download Autoruns v4.03 http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/utilities.shtml

When you run it, it shows all places in the registry that list programs to run at boot.

   Great answers,  I've increased the points and plan to
split it between all of you.   Does the split point page allow you
to click accept on more than one person?
