When I boot up XP I get a missing file message regarding MSVCR80.dll and it has something to do with StiD1690.exe whatever that is.  I have run the Nortons removal tool and none of the Reg Edit type programs make any difference. I just want to get rid of the error message!

Check in msconfig Startup for any entry pointing to it and uncheck it.

click on the StartUp tab, and uncheck the relevant entry.

When I went into startup I was able to work out that it had something do do with a camera driver.
Once I uninstalled the camera the problem went away.  Thanks.
