Hello everyone! This is my first post. I am very frustrated and hope you can help.
I am running Win 2000 on an older computer. My brother saved my previous hard drive programs to a folder within the new setup. Attempting to use some of those programs may have contributed to the problems. I did a Dr. Watson log which I can post if I need to.
Here are my problems:
A message continues to pop up every few minutes when the computer is idle " ResourceManager::getArchiveStream - unable to find file in archive:config\stages\stages\ssManifest.xml " no matter how many times I tell it ok, or close it.
Also when I restart a message appears that says "you need to restart your computer before your changes take effect" even though I didn't change anything
I tried to delete some programs and re install in case it was them causing the problem, but I got into more problems. For instance I removed IE 6 and it went back to 5 and now i can't reinstall IE6, which I need for my Real estate program. It always tells me that a previous installation needs a reboot, and of course I have rebooted many times since.
There are a couple of other minor problems, but these are my stressful ones.
Please tell me what to do!
I have run an updated version of Norton, - no viruses found, spybot, and adaware, minor things found and cleaned up.
On edit, I think I just figured out the exception! It is probably the Feeding Frenzy screensaver, which is not longer working because I deleted the game!
I will try to figure out how to delete the rest of it, but some help in doing that would be appreciated
