    Startup queries ... (Win XP Pro (SP2))

    1) When the boot up process has finished, the following error message appears on my desktop under the title 'Elan.exe Unable to locate component' - This application has failed to start because Multlang.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.'

    When I click on the 'OK' box, I get a repeat message. Ths time though, it's for a file called 'RasXP.exe'. When I click 'OK', that disappears too.

    2) A seperate error message appears also under 'Load dll': 'Hook Load failed'. Again, if I click 'OK', that disappears.

    3) I also get a THIRD error message under 'RUN DLL': 'ERROR LOADING AMECSA.CPL. The specified mdule could not be found'.

    Closing them does not seem to affect performance although some programs seem to be running a touch slower these days. However, it'd be less of an irritation if they weren't there.

    Does anyone know what they are, should I be worried etc., etc.?

    These messages all seem to be associated with an ADSL modem (Amecsa.cpl is an ADSL modem control panel). Have you recently installed another ADSL modem or software for it?

    Re: Startup queries ... (Win XP Pro (SP2))

    Sorry it's taken so long to reply but I've been away.

    The simple answer is yes. I'm a solitary wired desktop user who recently changed from a Zyxel ADSL modem to a D-Link wireless modem. I suspected that it might be something to do with switching ADSL modems because these missing files didn't seem to be causing me any problems.

    The question is - how do I get rid of these error messages? I suppose I'm a bit confused because I don't see why they keep appearing if I've removed the previous hardware/software from my machine.

    Windows probably still tries to start the software for the old modem.
    Check the following folders:

    Cocuments and SettingsAll UsersMenu StartProgramma'sStartup
    Cocuments and Settings<username>Menu StartProgramma'sStartup

    and the following registry keys (click Start | Run..., type RegEdit and press Enter):

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowCurrentVer sionRun
    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowCurrentVer sionRunServices
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowCurrentVe rsionRun
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareMicrosoftWindowCurrentVe rsionRunServices

    Delete items that mention the problem files.
