I have a Dell Latitude D830 that used to have netmeeting installed. Netmeeting use to work until yesterday. If I click on the netmeeting icon nothing happens. I removed the icon and tried to run conf from the run command again. When I run conf it says, "Windows cannot find 'conf'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the Start Button, and then click Search."

The computer is running XP SP3. I tried to remove netmeeting by typing in this command at the start run box, RunDll32 advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection C:\WINDOWS\inf\msnetmtg.inf,NetMtg.Remove That seemed to remove netmeeting or at least said it did. I then reinstalled SP3 hoping it would install any fix that I needed. However, I get the same error when I run the conf command where it can't find it.

Any suggestions?

Try doing a System Restore to a date prior to this problem.

Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools> System Restore.

When this opens make sure that "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is chosen, and click on Next>.

The dates appearing in bold are the dates that you can restore to, click on the date that you want and then click Next> to start the System Restore. This may take a long time to complete, and when it is done it will restart your computer. When the computer restarts and you have logged on as the administrator a Restoration Complete page will appear, click on OK to complete the process.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
