Every time I start the computer I get several messages saying various programs can't load because this item is not found. Windows says no firewall is detected but CA Security System says that it is running but in no longer runs a scan for spyware upon startup. I have tried reloading the software as it suggested and nothing changed. Also did a restore to a earlier time prior to this occurring and nothing changed. Any ideas?

CA Security may be corrupt/damaged...or the wbemcomm.dll file may be missing/corrupt/damaged.

I would uninstall it and then reinstall it, eliminating corruption as a cause. I know that you said that you "reloaded" the program...but many persons often just reinstall without uninstalling a given program.

The file mentioned...is allegedly a Windows file...but I don't find a copy of it on my XP systems.

A further search indicates that this file appears in Vista, not XP.
