Missed Resource File...


Recommended Posts

Hello Folks. Over the last couple of days I've had an information box appearing in Windows when I boot up the computer, just prior to completion of the operation.

It states :"Init Error Resource File missed. Please install program. OK." After clicking on OK everything runs normally. This information message just appeared out

of the blue. Malwarebytes, Microsoft Security Essentials and SuperAntiSpyware indicate the computer is malware and spyware free. Using a DELL Desktop, MS Windows Vista

Home Premium 32-bit... This problem is a minor inconvenience only, but that said, I'd still like to clear it up. Any assistance is most welcome THANKS!

I'm an old timer and completely hopeless when it comes to computers. I've been reading these formums for a long time and wish to thank those who have given their time and knowledge in order to help others.

Regards and Best Wishes,

Doug...

The problem appears to have gone as quickly as it came. I have started the computer several times today and everything appears normal.

THANK YOU!

Doug
