Thanks for replying.
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.
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
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.
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.
