Hey, I keep recieving this startup error everytime I log into windows... I am wondering how to get rid of it...

SYSDOC32.EXE - Unable To Locate Component

This application failed to start because S3STAT.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem

Any help would be great, thanks...

(ps, this is on my wnidows xp computer)

Hi iLLogiC...

SYSDOC32.EXE is a part of Norton Systemworks. Do you have that installed on the machine?

If you have the disk for it, uninstall and reinstall it.

If you don't have the disk to reinstall, we'll stop it from starting with Windows and see if that stops the error.

Click Start, then Run, type msconfig and click "Ok". Click on the "Startup" tab. Look in the list of startup applications for any entries involving System Works or that have the name of the file (SYSDOC32.EXE) in them. Remove the tick from the box next to each entry you find...apply the changes and reboot.

When Windows starts, you will receive a Selective Startup dialog window...this is normal. Tick the box to not show it again and click "Ok".

Does this eliminate the error?
