Terminal Sessions get "could not locate inf file c:\winnt\inf\wmp.inf" at logon

I am running terminal services (application mode) on a Win2K server.  Recently a user tried to install WMP in her terminal sessions. She was unable to, but enough came down that now I am getting the error message       could not locate inf file  c:\winnt\inf\wmp.inf

I can then click on an OK button and all is well, but this is annoying and pops up for any terminal user.

How do I get this to stop?  

Where are the instructions to try and load this located?

I checked the run and runonce, msconfig etc.

thanks.

I deleted the registry keys suggested by Big5250 and it worked great.  I no longer get the error on logon.23
