Cannot Find File; Check to Ensure Path and Filename Are Correct
This message is caused when Windows tries to execute applications listed on the Run= or Load= lines in the WIN.INI file.

The above error can be caused by one of the following situations:


The path to the executable file is invalid (it is misspelled or does not exist).
The file has been deleted.
Either the Load= or Run= line has exceeded the 128-character limit. In Windows 3.1, you can use the StartUp group feature to avoid this limitation.
There is more than one space between the items on the Load= or Run= line. For example, there are two spaces between the applications on the following Load= line: Load=c:\windows\AppOne.exe AppTwo.exe

i found this on a site but it doesnt say how to fix the problem .marilynn

I use W200, not XP, but the architecture will be close.

Go to my computer, left click and then click on whichever drive is your hard drive (mine is "C").

Click on the folder "Documents and Settings". There will probably be two folders there, one for "all users" and one for yourself (more folders if there are more accounts on the machine).

Open each folder, left click the "start menu" and look for the program that you want. Delete it.

Let me know if this works for you!

I'm ready to believe that a repair of XP is in order.

Alrighty then! Take your problem to the site below. There's a lot of folks there who know a lot more than I.

(By the way, they are in the process of switching servers, so that's why the numbers, and not the name).
