    Post Weird error message - when I boot up Windows 7 Ultimate, I get the following error message:

    CCxFile::Seek: Not create file!

    I can't out anything about. It does not do this in safe mode. Any ideas?

    Do you have or have had any Corel programs installed and that they are in your Startup items in msconfig ?

    Go Start - type msconfig - press enter and look at the programs under Startup.

    If none are in there then under the Services tab check the box to Hide Microsoft services and look for any in there - unchecking any in either section should stop that message.

    No Corel items in MSAConfig, and no Corel services (at least identified as such) in Services. I don't believe I ever had any Corel software installed on this laptop.

    Google definitely IDs it as a Corel association.

    As it doesn't pop up in Safe Mode but at each boot and there's no obvious reference to it in msconfig, then you will need to perform a clean boot to ID which it is in the start up menu that is the cause.

    Before you disable all non MS services, make a note of those that are showing as Stopped or unchecked and the same for those under the Startup tab.

    I think it may be an "asus netswitch software" issue: CCxfile:seek:not create file

    ... or an "Asus Security Protection Manager" issue: CCxfile::Seek:Not create file!

    Perhaps I would have had a better result had I put the full error message into Google

    How to fix (like I did):
    Use your Driver CD - find folder "ASPM" then run as Administrator this file; "SILENTINS.BAT";
    Restart;
    ... and - that's it - SPM working again

    Best regards,
