I had to clean my HD and do a clean install of Vista Ultimate 32. Now, when I boot up the computer I get the following message: "could not load file of assembly MOM.implementation or one of it's descrepancies. The system cannot find the file specification"  I click on the OK button and the message does go away. I booted from the OS disk, and did a boot repair sequence, but the message still appears. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on? Thanks for your help. David

Usually happens after installing dot net framework 2.0, have you installed that after clean format?

If you have a ATI graphics card try upgrading the graphics drivers otherwise try reinstalling the .NET Framework.

If you are using a ATI catalyst driver.
Try using a previous driver or a newer one if you use a old one.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

I downloaded the latest framework net 2.0 from the Microsoft web site. No luck. It downloaded but when installed, I got a message that this was already on the system.  Now, where do you suggest I go.Thanks, David

Since you dont have the ATI driver it does points to the framework.

Try this procedure from MS to be sure the framework is installed correctly:

Sorry, that did not work. I uninstalled Net 3.5 and re-installed from the microsoft support site. The computer does the same thing.  I looked, and I do have the ATI driver installed. Should I uninstall and try downloading it again from the MB driver set? Thanks, David

I uninstalled the ATI Video Driver and reinstalled them. I also let the computer search for a more current driver update, and it came back that my driver was up to date. Any other suggestions? Thanks, David

The problem is the Catalyst Control Center.
Uninstall then when you reinstall dont install the Catalyst Control Center only the drivers.
Vista can handle those settings so you dont need it anyway.
