greetings everyone this is my first post here at geeks to go but I came here because I found answers to questions I had and this was the first site to actually have the answers!!!

anyways when i boot up xp as soon as it changes from login menu to windows i get an error that says

" Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\system32\service.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start Button, and then click Search. "

thats it it just brings up that error every time nothing bad happens but its annoying :tazz:'

any ideas? could it be something i changed in run > msconfig ?

thanks for your help in advanced :)
