Hi Folks,

The following list of Errors and Warnings appear each time I bootup. I only found the Event Viewer a couple of days ago, but this System Log list was repeated back to June 2007 and I need your help to interpret and preferably fix.

The Removable Storage warnings may relate to a pagefile.sys file I placed on the 8GB FAT32, and the 2GB FAT flash drives - but I can't recall how I did that - only that the Windows dialogue box told me it was recommended to put them there. So if they need to be removed please let me know in truly idiot-proof form.

Thanks folks. I'll look in regularly if you need questions answered (but don't underestimate the extent of my sheer ignorance).

Hi Folks,

Couldn't find the Edit button, so I've had to reply to myself!

I found the Tab that places pagefile.sys on drives and set it to zero MB for my two flash drives, then rebooted.

This removed the ,sys files and removed the two Removable Storage Warnings from the list of Errors on bootup - wooohooooo - although I'm unsure if they really should be there to help with Virtual Memory. What do you think?

So that's two down, 10 more to go.

No. My arithmetic is fine, it's not 9 more to go, 'cos a new RemoteAccess Error popped in to join the 7 others so that the list of lines that the Remote Access Server can't reset on lana now reads: 17 15 0 6 18 16 5 and 3.

I still need advice/help to fix/remove these Errors and find the missing machine certificate for L2TP/IPSec things.
The AppleTalk Error I think is permanent as I foolishly deleted that folder, and am now using a free download as surrogste (see my other Post on AppleTalk).

Any ideas?
Thanks.

Have also bookmarked your link and will study content in detail. I hope they explain what lana is and L2TP protocol over IPSec!
Thanks Monty.

Found definitions of these terms using Google and Wikipedia, but they still don't make much sense to me.

Regarding my missing machine certificate anyone know how I,

"Verify that the “HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Rpc\ClientProtocols” registry key is not absent. It may have been removed by mistake.
The values most commonly displayed are listed below, and may be tried as well:
ncacn http : REG SZ : rpcrt4.dll
ncacn ip tcp : REG SZ : rpcrt4.dll
ncacn nb tcp : REG SZ : rpcrt4.dll
ncacn ip udp : REG SZ : rpcrt4.dll"

We'll get there between us, my friends. Any help greatly appreciated.

Hi Folks,

Still need help with these things.

Should I pay £20 (around $40) for "PC Booster" to see if it'll help fix? This is a copy of what they claim to do:

# Fully automatic tune up of your PC with just a few mouse clicks.
# Eliminate and Prevent most PC crashes by optimizing resource usage.
# Auto recovery of Memory that Windows steals from your computer.
# Boost and optimize your Internet speed for faster surfing.
# Clean hundreds of unwanted garbage files from your hard disk.
# Protect your privacy by deleting up 'cookies' which are IDs left over from your Internet surfing.
# Make your CD-ROM run at a faster speed. Enhance your enjoyment of multimedia, VCDs, DVDs and game play.
# Add/remove Windows Start Menu Options. Customize your default 'My Documents' folder, remove 'Favorites', 'Windows Update' options and more customizations.
# Enable Fast Shutdown and auto close of non-responding applications.
# Real time memory usage monitoring graph.
# CPU Stability Test to make sure that your system is stable.
# Fully configurable for power users.
# Extensive documentation and instant context help.

Their page for further info is here:

but I'm unsure if it'll actually help with fixing these Errors and Warnings on bootup.

What do you think I should do?

Rob for event id 15 look at the second answer http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?eventid...alk&phase=1
If you remove your flash drives do you still get the error code?

Hi Monty,
Thanks for replying.

AppleTalk Errors:

I saw this:
"If you, do not use a Macintosh in your network, you can get rid of this message in the following way:
1. Go to Control Panel -> Add/remove programs -> Windows Components -> other network and print services, and remove both AppleTalk services (file sharing and print), then reboot.
2. Go to Control Panel -> Network and dialup -> <your connection> -> properties and from the components window remove the AppleTalk services."

Monty I don't use a Mac, so the advice appears sound and wise. But, on a daily basis I currently use a torrent Client to make Local and Remote connections with other computers worldwide - some of which are likely to be Apple Mac's - so I'm reluctant to remove AppleTalk services in case they're needed for this specific purpose.

Am I being stupid in assuming that I need AppleTalk for connections to be made for full torrent up- and download functionality? Or does AppleTalk have nothing to do with that?

File sharing via torrent is so slow I wouldn't want to jeopardise or reduce speed further. For example, it takes me four and a half days to download 4GB, and one of the torrents is 73GB.

EDIT: I've just received confirmation from a torrent-forum that AppleTalk is NOT used. So I'll give these steps a try at removing AppleTalk Services and report back later. Thanks for putting me in this direction Monty. :thumbsup:

2nd EDIT: Oh dear, bad news. Did the changes listed above > Rebooted twice and the errors are still there. I'm thinking of giving up on this. The main problem initially was to stop frequent crashing and AppleTalk errors being generated at 15 entries per minute.
End of EDIT


Flash Drives:
I've never removed them! Plugged them in once, and continue to use daily as my hard-drive is only 8GB.
But I don't see what they have to do with the AppleTalk Errors Monty.
I fixed the Removable Storage warnings by removing pagefile.sys from each flash drive.


Registry:
Any ideas how I verify that the “HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Rpc\ClientProtocols” registry key is not absent? (from an earlier Post)

Thanks Monty, you're much appreciated.
