It says "This program is needed for opening files of this type 'LCK file'

Any body know how I can make this go away? It comes up every time I get to the desktop when I first go online. Thanks, Kandice

I downloaded the latest acrobat reader and it still comes up every time I go to the desktop before I have clicked anything. I just uninstalled it and the message is still there. It would be nice to get rid of it. Appreciate your help.

Going to Dell worked for the windows 98 shut down problem, but nothing seems to work to get rid of the acrobat readers message that says "this program is needed for opening LCK files". I tried uninstalling and installing acrobat reader. the message will not go away whether I have acrobat reader installed or not. :thumbsup:
