I installed service pack 3 today. On reboot, right after the splash screen I had a dialog box that had some junk characters (they looked like unicode for Chinese or Korean characters) pointing to the following: programs\commonfiles\speechengines\microsoft\lexicon\1033\r1033tts.lxa.

I should note:

For a long time I have had a wierd dialog box that appears immediately after the splash screen. This dialog box appeared after a Symantec technician deleted some sutff in my registry because my desktop icon names were not transparent.

My guess is that on start-up Windows is looking for something in the registry but can't find it. The garbage characters appeared before the programs\...\...\ so this suggests to me that there is a corruption before that in the boot sequence.

Any suggestions as to what is causing the problem -- and how to correct it? Thanks.
