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.

Start > Run > type in:

msconfig

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


Or: Use hijackthis to fix the relevant entry to stop the error.
Download Hijackthis:

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.
