I have not followed Keith's latest instructions yet, because another problem has cropped up which might be related.

When I try to open MS Paint I get a Net Meeting Info Box: The properties of MS Paint reads as follows:

C:\Program Files\Net Meeting\CONFIG.EXE
When I try to open Imaging I get the following properties:

C\WINDOWS\EXPLORER.EXE

Allkinds of things happening this morning.

Please advise

PS I amnot sure if this should be under a separate posting.

Just followed Keith's instructions as follows:

Start-Settings-Control Panel-Add/Remove, Add/Remove Windows components.

Cannot execute Add/Remove Windows Components, nothing about messaging.

Is this under Windows Setup tab?

If so, no luck as indicated above.

Still can't find it:

Here's what I have under Windows Setup:

Accesibility
Accesories
Address Book
Communications
Desktop Themes
Internet Tools
Multilanguage Tools
Multimedia
Online Services
System Tools
Web TV for Windows


Do I need to have my installation disk in drive?

You won't need the CD

If you click accessories then details, it will show what they are

It could be anywhere on any of the tabs, sorry but I haven't got an instant messenger on any PC

So what do I do about this "Microsoft Critical Update Notification" box that keeps popping up on my screen or have we run out of options?

Thanks

You must have installed that as an optional from Windows Update, look for it in add remove, or click start, programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools to use the update wizard uninstall

Please clarify what you mean by msc. However I tried the following anyway:

START>RUN>MMC
START>SERVICES.MSC
START.MESSAGE.MSC

They all give me dialogue box indicating: "Cannot find file "xxx"(or one of its components) Please ensure that path is correct,etc....

Correction on my last message should read as follows:

I ran the following:

START>RUN>MMC
START>RUN>MESSENGER.MSC
START>RUN>SERVICES.MSC
