This is tied into the repair job that was done to correct a non functioning Internet Explorer. Computerwiz12890 was walking me through it...we repaired WindowsXP...now when I went to open a program this message came up..."Snap-in Creation Failed"...the Snap-in is not created...it may not be installed properly. NAME :Disk Defragmenter... CLSID: {43668E21...}

Does anybody know what this means??? How do I correct this???

Hello Keith, well the OS is XP pro. After computerwiz12890 and I reinstalled the OS yesterday, because IE was not functioning, the system seemed to be working fine.That was right up to the point where I tried to bring up another program. What did come up was that warning message..."Snap-in..." I've never seen that one before.Microsoft suggested that I add..."%SystemRoot%System32..."into the path under the Path Environment Variable. Frustrated after it didn't seem to work, I just went and uninstalled and then reinstalled my disk defragmenter. The warning sign has disappeared and the program works ,so case solved, I hope?? I haven't got any other "fallout" as yet. I appreciate your attention on the matter, Thanks

Thank You for letting me know

Hope it goes well
